Meet the Artist
Adriana is a Colombian designer and jewelry maker, now based in Barcelona. Jewelry is her way of expression — she enjoys the creative process, the connection with materials and its possibilities. She likes exploring different techniques, colors, textures, folds, and "secrets" in metal. While her inspiration comes from geometry, repetition, sculpture, and art, it is her roots and her surroundings that define her style and her starting points – sometimes closer to design, sometimes to art. In recent project called "Colorful Emptiness", she created rings with empty receptacles, only treating the surface with patinas, as a metaphor for the passing of time and the beauty of the imperfect.

Barcelona is music and color and late nights. From lights strung between narrow alleyways to sunbathers soaking up the rays on Barceloneta Beach, it has a festive and fun atmosphere that few cities in the world can replicate. We love the unmistakable Gaudi architecture that asserts itself all over the city, as well as the charming, vibrant neighborhood of Gracia. Stroll the streets of Barcelona’s many quarters, from the artsy El Ravel to the historic Born, and feel the city’s distinct pulse around you.
