Art We Heart: Juliana Bezerra
This week's Art we Heart features the brilliant jewellery maker Juliana Bezerra
. Originally from Nova Floresta, Brazil, Juliana moved to Portugal in 2005 to study
Contemporary Jewellery, Crimping and Chiselling.
Fast forward to now and this mega talented woman is the latest addition to out list of inspiring ladies doing cool things in our favourite sunny city and BOAWs' stomping ground. Juliana runs her own atelier
here in sunny Lisbon, where she sells truly the most gorgeous pieces of jewellery you'll ever see!
We're obsessed with the organic, raw and natural hand finished (but still sleek) Juliana's pieces look, an aesthetic she artfully obtains by using artisanal techniques.
You can really tell she puts a whole lot of love into every single piece she produces, this is a woman with a full passion for her art so buying a ring or pair of earnings almost feels like you are tapping into a corner of her creative mind. A lovely feeling as jewellery is supposed to be a very personal thing one so close to our skin.
Having recently showcased at Moda Lisboa's Wonder Room
, she's definitely also been receiving from much-deserved love from Portuguese press, we've spotted features in Vogue Portugal
, Time Out
and even Louis Vuitton's
Lisbon City Guide! It's not hard to see why, her pieces are absolutely gorgeous and so is her website
. Our WANT list just keeps growing and growing.
Take a look at some of our favourite pieces from her (which were hard to choose because we love and want all of them!) and see for yourself why we're obsessed with Juliana and her craft:
