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 relationship between their own style and self confidence.
Every piece is handmade, by her.
She only works with natural stones, mostly coming from Brazil.
All pieces are made by Silver or solid Gold (9ct or 18ct) and have their own individual story to tell.
She graduated as product designer in Brazil and concluded her Master’s degree in Rome, at Istituto Europeo di Design (IED).
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 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 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.
