Carolina de Barros makes handcrafted jewellery inspired by the natural forms of earth and stone, finding beauty in imperfections and the human touch. Carolina is drawn to the sculptural freedom of jewellery, teasing ancestral forms and finishes from her material processes. She works with the ancient technique of lost wax casting - a process whereby each piece is carved by hand in wax, before being cast in precious metals, resulting in a collection of wholly unique pieces.
The pieces strive toward the elemental, retaining an organicism which allows the wearer an effortless tactile relationship with the jewellery. All materials used are ethically sourced, sustainably produced and recycled where possible.
Carolina is a German Brazilian designer currently based in London.
