Terrazzo used to be a material used in construction in the 1970s. Now, however, artist and Joid’art creative director, Cristina Julià, has rescued it from oblivion. Having used it as a source of inspiration for a piece of work, she then went on to create the Terrazzo Project, a collection of jewellery that reflects the power of this graphic work and expresses it through simple contemporary forms.
The days of thinking of pearls as classic and boring are well and truly over. With this new Fancy collection, jewellery designer Berta Riera has demonstrated that pearls can be reinvented and radically transgressive. Do you dare to discover them?
The Arp jewellery collection, designed by Cristina Julià, is ‘a tribute to the work of artist Jean Arp’. That is how the creator herself describes it, delving into the abstract legacy of lines and shapes created by Arp and rediscovering them in a entirely personal way.
Contemplating the Sagrada Família, La Pedrera, Casa Batlló and Park Güell arouse feelings that are difficult to describe. Gaudí’s legacy in Barcelona goes beyond the material to touch the spirit. Gaudí’s work is all about sensations. It is magnetic. An ever-expanding creativity that has inspired our range of most iconic jewellery: the Gaudí collection.
The power of magma, the intensity of the depths of the Earth and the impetus of a volcanic eruption were the inspiration for jeweller Carme Fàbregas to start creating the new Vulcano jewellery collection. Her creative eye reinterprets the essence of these most basic elements to focus on the capricious textures of volcanic rocks.
The expert hands of Joid’art goldsmiths have transformed the sketches of the artists who collaborate with us into unique pieces. They have painstakingly traced the contours of each piece to create the new AW17 collections that are already available in our stores and on joidart.com.
The Garland collection has a dual personality. Simple and sophisticated. Smooth and bobbly. Elemental and complex. Effortless and eye-catching. In the Joid’art Lab they describe the collections as, ‘Pure form adorned with the synthesis of an ornament’.
Sculptor Sara Domènech developed the Plecs jewellery collection as if she were playing with small pieces of folded paper. Seeing the result, we can imagine her, scissors in hand, cutting circles of paper, folding them in half and assembling them in a completely spontaneously way to create small sculptures of sinuous lines. Maybe that was the way it happened. Or maybe not. It’s not really important…what matters are the pieces into which she poured her creativity.
Every day has its own special charm, you just have to know where to look for it. A nice message received mid-morning. A plant that finally blooms. The pleasure of having lunch with someone. A song almost forgotten. A leisurely walk. The breeze on your face. It’s about finding beauty in the little things. Something as simple as the new Toujours jewellery collection.
It happened. Nobody quite knows how, when or why, but one night the moon filled with light and shone so brightly that it is even said that the glow worms stopped flying to save themselves from being eclipsed. Ceramist Nuri Negre Herzing gazed at the sky calmly, from her retreat in the Valle del Llémena, and decided to convert the experience into a piece of jewellery. And that is how Keramik White was born.
