ELISABETH NEWTON PEARLS

Brazilian jewelry designer Fernando Jorge reinvents tradition. Using standard gemstones that are often overlooked in his native Brazil due to their sheer abundance, Jorge cuts stones into unique forms, then pairs them in unusual proportions and with interesting materials.

Jorge employs a broad range of jewelery manufacturing techniques, combining traditional craftsmanship with contemporary technology. Beautifully experimental, Jorge’s jewelry is simultaneously both sculptural and organic.

Honestly I find something innately sensual about Jorge Fernando’s work: I love the pairing of soft and hard forms; the way in which the metal seems to swallow the gemstones.  That, and I always enjoy a designer who redefines something traditional in a contemporary way!
