A talent from springtime

A talent from springtime

Life and career of a visionary force of nature, coming from a far away land.
The Brazilian-born jewelry designer Fernando Jorge has a mission: to take inspiration from the laidback attitude and effortless sensuality of his home country and to translate it into something elegant and organic. Fascinated by jewelry andbeautiful objects since a young age, he completed his formal training by earning an MA in Jewelry Design at Central St. Martins. Fast-forward 4 years and Fernando Jorge has become one of the most sought after fine jewellers in London – showing at London Fashion Week at Rock Vault; the exclusive selection of independent jewellers selected by Stephen Webster, and representing London at the prestigious Couture show in LA. His last collection called Bloom features stunning, demure andultra-modern jewels based on countless sketches, all meticulously handcrafted in his studio: “Each collection references what I’ve done before, what I know. Even my first collection was relevant to what I was doing prior to designing, it was about my heritage, a comment on the factories who churn out souvenirs; carved parrots, ashtrays…I wanted to create something elegant and beautiful using the same stone carving techniques, contrasting bad taste and good taste. I found a guy working in these factories who had no training, no family history in jewellery, and wanted to use him to make my pieces instead of going down the traditional fine jewellery route. I could have done the obvious thing and gone to Germany or somewhere in Europe, but I liked that it didn’t come from a perfect discipline, yet was relevant to my background. When I start designing a new collection I start from where I stopped, so that ties them all together.”
