THE BRAND IS DRIVEN BY A WILL TO CREATE HIGH QUALITY SUSTAINABLY-MADE JEWELLERY THAT CAN BE WORN BY ALL GENDERS
Every jewellery piece is inspired by a specific building or architect, in order to create a unique dialogue between the jewellery itself and the detailed scale of the architecture. The ideation of the pieces follow a similar process of designing a building; the use of hand-drawing, making 3D models, visualisations and prototypes, before crafting in silver.
MADE BY HAND
esquivel.jewellery draws upon a principal of limited editions and exclusive pieces, allowing for a more sustainable process and waste reduction. The use of precious metals allows Esquivel to turn unused silver into something new, while the packaging focuses on using recycled materials, made from cotton and food waste.
FOR ALL GENDERS
The jewellery is focused on the design of the jewellery itself, with the human body in mind - regardless of gender - as we believe that, like in architecture, every body has the ability to inhabit it.
MEET THE DESIGNER
Portuguese designer Sofia Esquivel has a background in architectural studies, performance design & art installation, and has now added the intricate work of silversmithing to her repertoire. Working between London and Lisbon, Esquivel has developed a unique brand of sustainable and wearable art, with each individual piece taking inspiration from the principles of architecture, as well as the forms of famous buildings and the iconic styles of inspirational architects.
Having worked for several years as part of a collective of artists and designers, creating commissioned sculptural and interactive artworks, this process of finding the perfect balance between design and sculpture lead her to explore the world of crafted jewellery, developing delicate hand-crafting techniques. Heavily influenced by her background in architecture, her process involves a combination of manual techniques combined with a contemporary technological approach to processes and design.
esquivel.jewellery gives voice to the designer’s ambition to merge her creative experiences, values and passions, culminating as one project with the aim to create timeless wearable artworks that tell a story.
