    About the founder

    Renata Blanco

    Renata Blanco was inspired to delve into jewelry innovation by her upbringing, immersed in the stunning artistry of her father's glasswork. Although she didn't immediately embrace the craft, she later rediscovered her passion for it and fell in love with the process on her own terms.

    Blanco reflects on her artistic identity: "Conchita is like my alter ego, especially in the physically demanding realm of blown glass, a profession largely dominated by men. When I work, I embody 'Conchita'—a strong, expressive persona unafraid of limits and passionate about experimentation."
