Life can be as sweet as caramel, as pleasing as an undulating line and as beautiful as a jewel. Jewellery designer Martina Pont knows that only too well. And bringing those philosophies together she has created the Caramel collection. One look and you will be hooked.
Described by its designer as “the sinuous forms and texture of caramel transposed into jewellery”. A beautiful definition and one which is also perfectly true. The pieces consist of two linked rings, the first in either matte silver or matte gold metal, and the second hand-crafted in different shades of borosilicate glass (honey, green, black or transparent), with a texture and luminosity reminiscent of caramel.
The range of rings and pendants encapsulate an air of both freshness and elegance. You can make them as fun or simple as you please. Everything depends on what you wear them with and which finish you choose. Discover our creations in our Joid’art stores and online at joidart.com.
Martina Pont is a jewellery designer. She studied Fine Arts at the UB and later trained in jewellery design at the Escola Arts i Oficis in Barcelona, completing her studies with a creative jewellery course at the Alchimia school in Florence. Ms Pont spent three years working for jewellery designer Felix Zuazu and was selected as the winner of the Professional Award in the 2007 International Enjoia’t Contemporary Jewellery Awards. She has participated in numerous exhibitions, both collective and individual.
The work of Gaudí is an inexhaustible source of inspiration for the designers who collaborate with Joid’art. Jewellery designer and gemmologist Carme Fàbregas has analysed the wrought ironwork produced by the great architect to develop the new Forge jewellery collection. Want to know more?
I am air. Light and ethereal, the wind through which birds soar. At the same time, I am water. Free, fresh, energetic. And land. With roots that tie me to the olive groves and to my ancestors’ homes. But, above all, I am light. The dawn awakening in ochre. Organic shadows resting on my skin. A glass prism in its mineral form. The fragile reflection of a ceramic vase. I carry the Mediterranean in every drop of my being. And I like it.
Occasion wear designer Maria Roch is the creative talent who has infused the La Nuit jewellery collection with its unique spirit, form and personality. As part of her collaboration with Joid’art she has produced a range of creations for special occasions that would make the perfect addition to any outfit.
Every celebration is graced by guests and jewellery that form the life and soul of the party. Those that exude charm, that transmit a special energy, that are radiant and catch everyone’s eye because they are unique. The new La Nuit jewellery collection created by occasion wear designer Maria Roch in collaboration with Joid’art is inspired by the party spirit.
The sensation of diving into the water. That freshness that seeps through every cell of our bodies. Appreciate the vastness of a fascinating world in which we are but miniscule guests. Feel the embrace of the water. Discover the multitude of wondrous forms and underwater landscapes. Swim back to the surface and float there. Close your eyes and soak in the incredible beauty. Feel the heat of the sun on your skin. Know that summer has arrived, and with it, the jewellery collection that bears its name.
Mi&Co is a swimwear, beachwear and daywear clothing brand based in Barcelona and inspired by the island of Formentera. 100% Mediterranean, the brand’s philosophy is based on capturing the essence of the island and sharing it, with a touch of bohemian style, through its collections. As they themselves describe it: ‘fashion with its feet in the water’, which we couldn’t wait to see shimmering in our sea of jewellery.
For centuries, Mediterranean cultures have explored the craft of mosaics. Our Greek, Roman and Mesopotamian ancestors used them to decorate their walls, and the fascination towards creating art from these tiny pieces has prevailed until today, with magnificent examples from artists such as Gaudí, Franz Spohn, Pete Manson and Emma Karp. Today, jewellery designer Berta Riera exhibits her special tribute to this craft in the Moitie Aribau collection.
Mid-afternoon. The sun kissing your skin. Summer clothes, light jewellery and comfortable shoes. A book in your hands and a spot near the sea. Few plans are better on a summer’s day. Rings on your fingers, necklaces around your neck and espadrilles on your feet. Joid’art for jewellery, Castañer for footwear. The Mediterranean vibe is as true as a stroll along the beach.
