“Our philosophy is based upon upsetting daily routine.
Our inspiration? The way we are, the way we behave, the craziness of circus art… All this led us straight to these shapes and colors. Each of our jewelry pieces has the fascination of an antique world, of something lost , they are unique pieces. The gold pieces of a vanished civilization we may discover again, even if for us it is all new. A preciousness that leaves freedom of expression since any style may be paired with our are eye-catching, standout pieces. They look like amulets, something so strong they create a bond with the wearer.”
How old is the collection?
“Emma Purple was conceived in October 2010.”
