‘The best creations are born from the unordinary.’
Carolina Curado’s personal project began with a biologist from Porto, Carolina. Carolina decided it was about time to pursue her childhood dream! So after finishing a course on jewellery in 2012 she came to Lisbon to start creating her first pieces. Now working hand-in-hand with advertiser Fátima Reis, both gave life to the project in a small studio with a gorgeous sea-view in Paço de Arcos, just outside Lisbon.
Handmade jewellery inspired by nature, the pieces show a great influence of organic forms. From insects to animal skulls and flowers, their original designs can be found on earrings, bracelets, rings and necklaces. The brand offers something very unique and fresh, and some pieces are limited editions. Carolina Curado also offers her clients the possibility to purchase tailor-made designs. Mainly made from gold plated brass, Carolina likes to use other materials as semi-precious stones, pearls and zircons. Although some more original and more sophisticated designs include nail rings and ear cuffs.
Each piece is made mainly with Portuguese materials. With every single detail being taken looked at meticulously, with her own two hands. Carolina and Fátima keep track of the entire manufacturing process from the mold base creation to assure the quality of their products.
With the majority of sales taking place online, both owners hope to start selling internationally in 2019 as well as opening a new studio.
