Cypris

The unpredictable nature of the sea - with its motions, forms, and reflections - inspired the creation of the ring.

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.

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.
