Upon beginning our day we intentionally choose our jewellery allowing it to bring us a sprinkling of joy to our journey. The creations can be a gift from someone special, or simply a memento from a special occasion. Each piece is for her, it is a connection to that time, a story that is bound to that jewel, never to be forgotten. The designer incorporates this desire into her craft.
The pieces are personal, taking inspiration from the life that surrounds us and using these inspirations to create unique, simple pieces. Timeless, small and delicate jewels that form your own tailor made individual collection.
Every piece is created by hand, with its own story to tell. The jewellery is a reflection of the minuscule, organic moments of life, giving women the energy to feel confident and strong when wearing the pieces. This is not simply jewellery, it is art.

Adriana Chede is a brazilian jewellery designer with an atelier in London. She creates all designs herself - in a very slow pace creation process. She gathers inspiration from her travels, elements of daily life and by watching women - how to improve the relantionship between their own style and self confidence.
Every piece is handmade, by her.
She only works with natural stones, most coming from Brazil. All pieces are made by Silver or Gold (9ct or 18ct) and have their own individual story to tell.
Adriana is half Lebanese, and her family has kept many of the traditions. Her father, which was the third generation of Lebanese in Brazil chose a jewellery to her mom to celebrate the birth of his five children's. Since Adriana was born, jewellery was always a small sign of celebration of life. The children were also gifted a little colored stone for their birth and both parents used to have all five little stones on a Gold chain around their neck.
Her creative process doesn’t follow fashion tendences, 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 to 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.
