Originally from Brazil, Adriana Chede made London the home to set up her contemporary designer jewellery business in 2018.
Adriana's innovative 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.
Bold and dainty jewellery, to fun and quirky jewellery. Her designs embrace different aspects of modern and the styles reflect this. From fun long drop earrings to the fashionable Viking horn ring to make a statement.
A thoughtful designer with all jewellery handmade for women from sustainable recycled gold (9ct and 18ct) and sterling silver.
Every piece is handmade, by her.
She only works with natural stones, mostly coming from Brazil.
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 second 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 coloured 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 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.
