Maria Estrella Iglesias makes jewelry in Brookline, Massachusetts. Born in Spain, she has lived in Boston, Chicago, Nashville, and Philadelphia. Estrella has taught at Harvard University and the University of Illinois-Chicago. She has written about Spanish literature and about a family of Southern artists: Dreaming in Clay on the Coast of Mississippi: Love and Art at Shearwater (Doubleday, 2001.) Her collection of American art pottery was featured on Home and Garden TV and her jewelry on "Sundays with Liz Walker" (Boston CBS4) and "Chronicle." Her sense of color and composition shows in her writing about painting and pottery, and comes together in her jewelry. Her work is available on this website and at branches of Persona Jewelry+ in the Commonwealth Hotel (Kenmore Square) and the Ritz, on Boston Common. For Estrella, each piece holds a subtle emotional connection to one of the great cities of southern Spain where she has lived: Cordoba, Granada, Cadiz. All necklaces are made from the finest quality precious and semi-precious stones. Inquire by e-mail about prices.
