Krystal Ramirez is a senior at California State University Long Beach working on her Bachelor in Fine Arts mostly focused on metal and jewelry. She was able to discover her interest in jewelry when she was studying at Orange County School of Arts. Her goal in life is to sell her jewelry or artwork.
Krystal’s art is mostly made out of metals such as copper, brass, and sterling silver. Her art pieces center on theme of dining materials.
Krystal’s exhibit displays the importance of intimate relationships. The setting of her artwork is based on a dining table. Krystal says that the dinner table was a symbol of building relationships and quality time because it was a place at home where she spent quality time with her family.
I enjoyed the simplicity of her art. Even though her art was very simple, I appreciated her passion when it comes to sharing the meaning behind her art. I love how she is making these pieces of art as a refection of her happiness towards family, friends, and jewelry.
