Gabriela Artigas: "It goes beyond my understanding, but when I look at a piece of jewellery, it brings me joy."
How would you describe your design aesthetics?
We are really into architecture and mid-century specifically, with a very clean, modern and simple aesthetic. This translates into our jewellery. For us, it is about timeless pieces, and an extension of our hearts. It is about shapes, and it is very visual for us. When you leave one of our rings on a table, it looks beautiful on the inside and on the outside. A piece needs to be polished from every single angle. It should be beautiful from every angle. It is basically little sculptures.
Looking at your jewellery, it feels like it can blend into anyone’s aesthetic in a way. It suits many different people, beauties and aesthetics?
We believe that we have a very clear aesthetic, but also that our pieces are simple enough for anyone to wear. They are very easy to play with. We have very young customers, and we have an old clientele too. It is amazing to see how a 15-year-old can wear the same piece as an 80-year-old. It is a beautiful piece by itself, but it all really depends on who is wearing it and how they wear it.
