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.
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.

Débora Traitè is the ‘culprit’ responsible for styling Joid’art’s recent SS18 campaign. We have been captivated by her sensitivity, her vision of fashion and her ability to tell stories through clothing and accessories.
Coohuco.com creator Inma Soria is the star of this celebration of colour and nature that is our spring editorial. She is pictured wearing pieces from the Tramuntana jewellery collection she has designed for Joid’art. Pieces that transmit a ‘breath of freedom’ and invite us to enjoy the approaching warm days to the full.
A stroll along the beach. Sunlight. The gentle lapping of the waves. Water swirling around your feet. An eclectic array of pebbles lining the shore. Each one unique; flat, oval, sculpted by time. Someone picks them up and puts them in their pocket ready to take home and reinterpret as art. As simple and evocative as that. That is precisely how the new Pebbles jewellery collection created by Berta Riera came into being.
True, profound love is as deep as the ocean. Transparent as water. Weightless as two bodies enveloped in waves of tenderness. As powerful as the force of the sea. Ever-expanding energy. An infinite emotion captured by jewellery designer Olivia Barthe in the new Infinite Love collection, inspired by the boundless Möbius strip, without beginning or end.
