This week we're putting the spotlight on bright Brazilian jewellery designer Fernando Jorge. The young talent takes his inspiration from the relaxed atmosphere and effortless sensuality of his home country. Fluid, organic shapes are used to create elegant, innovative pieces; allowing a more casual approach to fine jewellery.
Jorge graduated in 2010 with an MA Jewellery Design from the prestigious Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, and has since gained international acclaim in the world of fine jewellery. He was also chosen to be part of the British Fashion Council's 'Rock Vault' initiative in 2012, designing an exclusive ring from the precious metal Palladium.
Making use of a broad range of different techniques, Jorge combines his highly specialised craftmanship with contemporary technology. Although based in London, the designer continues to be inspired by his native country; returning 2 to 3 times a year to monitor the use specially cut Brazilian gemstones in his work.
We are delighted to stock the Fluid Diamonds collection; a further exploration of the designer's cultural background and sources of inspiration. The malleable shapes are typical of Jorge's laid-back, youthful approach to jewellery design, falling delicately on the skin with a lightness rarely seen in this field.
