Cypris

The unpredictable nature of the sea - with its motions, forms, and reflections - inspired the creation of the ring. The contrast between finishes allows light and reflections two diferent ways to behave: the polished surface mirrors and distorts the surrounding environment while the satin finish acts more tenuously by capturing only the luminosity and spreading it smoothly through the piece. The final design presents curves that takes the eye on an endless journey along it’s winding trail, until you come across with a bright white pearl that appears to float gently on the polished surface.

Portuguese Story

The intent was to create a collection that would link jewellery, architecture and Portuguese cultural heritage. Several pieces of jewellery were created based on architectural elements from an historic-portuguese church. The main challenge in creating this collection was being able to transfer the design geometry to an integrated algorithm in a 3D modeling program. This tool allowed to adapt the design to different forms of jewellery, whether they were rings, earrings, rings or pendants. All pieces are manufactured with 19.2 kt pink gold and come in different gemstones combinations.

Susa Bird

Susa Bird Jewellery Set consists of minimal gold necklace and earrings which represent visual culture of ancient Iranians. Simple geometric form of pieces is aligned with modern minimal sense of aesthetics, but behind the form lies a story of years ago. What seems like a simple vertical line is in a closer look a bird, the very considered animal in history of Iran, repeatedly painted on dishes through historical periods. This design is inspired by the ones painted on Susa goblet. The form is also designed in a way to be vague and mysterious hence provoking the curiosity to discover its story.

A.B.C

As the design name "Alphabet Block Chatter" (aka A.B.C) suggests, A.B.C transforms letters of the alphabet into something more vibrant and colorful.

Infinity

The fundamental building element of silver jewellery is the equilateral triangle and spatially, the tetrahedron. It can be found in the structure of many crystals and molecule models and combined into infinite spatial shapes. The tetrahedral structure with flexible joints forms various shapes of mobile adjustable jewellery. Despite the geometrical structure it gently follows the motion of a body. The illusion of infinite structures symbolically alludes to permanence. The gleam of the pyramidal peaks is highlighted by the embedded ground glass stones.
