Growing up in Costa Rica, and going on to live in a variety of places including Mexico, France, Canada and the US, Amaral has a deep appreciation for diversity which manifests itself in his art. With a background in science and technology Amaral is a precise and detail oriented artist. His perfectly executed, beautifully patterned cuff bracelets are a testament to his technical mastery and passion for perfection. Beginning by patterning the sterling silver, copper and brass that he uses for his designs, he then shapes his pieces into beautiful anticlastic and synclastic forms. Comfortable and contemporary each piece is a work of art.
