I have been working…

 Hello everyone! I have been working quietly in my studio.First step of my” gousset” watches before applying the resin. I am very excited to have found out in Canton, China a huge market dedicated to pearls and jewelry. I mean 7 floors ( yes, i did them all….) with inumerous little shops with a wide variety of beads from white to turquoise to deep purple! I was frantic! It took me the all morning then i went to another huge market dedicated to bags…I was in heaven …and there are huge market for shoes only then one for underwear then another for……whatever you want. Fortunately you can only pay in cash which considerably reduce your craziness but still i had most fun. Have a good week end. I am flying to Tokyo tomorrow via Seoul and my night prayers are with those who lost everything. I cannot imagine the anguish and the pain of the families.  Wish you all the very best Xo

Live and let die

Last year I had installed my studio in this amazing shop Fabrico Infinito and create throughout the day…most of the time having endless conservations with the owner Marcela Brunken i must admit! We had fun…She is a big fan of my work, was and still is  among the ones to continuously promote my art. Yesterday at a fancy dinner a friend was surprised that i present myself as Alex Castro Ferreira my single name and not with my married name and as an artist. Labels are hard to remove! But it make me wonder of the importance on male tradition which is still very implanted on our portuguese society( not to say around the world) and on how people see us. I am a flight attendant …….and also an artist. I am a woman of passion who is eager to learn evolve grow accepting the ups and downs of Life Live and let die…famous quote of my husband. Enjoy your day
