Joana Santos is a Portuguese emerging designer of contemporary jewellery.
Her minimalistic and geometric work is mostly inspired by architectural shapes, but also in nature and art, contrasting the rationality of the line with delicate techniques and unpredictable detailing.
With a degree in architecture, Santos achieved in jewellery the genuine expression of her aesthetic: straight angles and simple planes play with light and shadow exploring three-dimensionality and volumetry.
From the concept to the drawing and from the process to the matter, the jewels growing in her hands are pure. Made in silver, Santos' unique or limited collections, combine a meticulous and very careful handwork with conceptual research and technical experimentation.
