Adriana is from Brazil and half Lebanese. She discovered her passion for jewellery still in childhood when her father used to gift her mother with a piece of jewellery to celebrate every child that was born and special anniversaries.
Since Adriana was born, jewellery was always a small sign of celebration of life.
The children were also gifted a little coloured stone for their birth and both parents used to have all five little stones on a Gold chain around their neck.
Adriana graduated as a Product Designer and started in 2008 her carrier as a jewellery designer, studying in Parson Paris and completing her Master Degree with the highest grade at IED Rome.
During the past 6 years whilst developing her own brand, she worked in jewellery designers houses in Copenhagen, Milan, Rome and Paris.
In 2018 she made London the home to set up her contemporary designer jewellery business.
Adriana's handmade jewellery designs are inspired by her travels, elements of daily life and by watching women - how to improve the relationship between their own style and self-confidence. Creating jewellery collections for women which include; Nuova, Nordica, Minima, Exotica, Classica, and Urban that all represent her journey and the country's she has visited.
Timeless and dainty jewellery, to versatile and everyday jewellery. Modern designs handmade in a traditional goldsmith technique. Durable pieces that can be worn single for a delicate look or worn together to make a statement.
Every piece of jewellery is handmade, using natural Brazilian gems and recycled solid Gold (9ct and 18ct) or Sterling Silver. Delicate pieces for the modern woman, like little talismans to be worn everyday.
Her creative process doesn’t follow fashion tendency, it is not about the seasons.
It comes from a much slower pace.
Everything is handmade and that's why is so valuable for her.
For the collection pieces she expresses what is inside of her.
And in the commissioned pieces, she translates the stories that comes to her.
She describes it as a very inspiring mission.
