Mariana is a designer from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, living in Vancouver since 2016. Before finding her love for jewelry, she experienced many ways to express herself visually. She worked as a visual artist, painter, graphic designer & clothing designer.
Since a really young age, I have been curious about art, shapes, colours, poems, music, anything that would capture my attention, anything that would make me feel alive. I had so much inside of me to put into the world but didn’t know how. Art was my way to go!
At thirteen, I started to paint and was lucky to find an amazing mentor that changed my life! We discussed philosophy, contemporary art, colour theory. Every week after our meetings, I was so excited, with so many new perspectives to think about, and a thirst to learn more and more.
Since then, I knew I needed to be creating! The challenge to learn how to work with new materials and techniques in different areas was, and still is, my fuel. It is what keeps me going every day. To be out of my comfort zone is to know that I am moving forward and learning.
Today, my passion is to bring joy and confidence in the form of jewelry. I would like to think that with my work I can incentivize women to see themselves with different lenses, see themselves powerful, beautiful, bold, and brave.
