Marta Costa Reis: Coming to Jewellery Later In Life
In the 33rd episode of Perceived Value host Sarah Rachel Brown shares an interview recorded during New York City Jewelry Week this past November. Contemporary Jeweller Marta Costa Reis has traveled from Lisbon, Portugal to attend the inaugural event and having met Marta during Munich Jewellery Week 2018, Sarah was excited to reconnect with this international artist.
The two women took some time during the busy week to discuss how Marta came to jewellery later in life, being ok with letting someone support you to follow your passion, and taking full advantage of opportunities and traveling to do so.
Marta Costa Reis started studying jewellery in 2004 while pursuing other professional activities. She chose to dedicate herself fully to this work in 2014. She completed the Jewellery course at Arco, in Lisbon and is currently enrolled in the Advanced Course in Visual Arts in the same school.
