Brazilian designer, Antonio Bernardo creates jewels which span the fields of artistic restlessness and contemporary design. In his work, innovation and tradition interact, employing the excellence of handcrafted jewelry and sophisticated industrial processes to devise jewels that resemble sculptured objects.
Trial, empiric sensitivity and exacting production are main concepts in his design, the identity lies in reinventing itself, every day, through physical and functional investigation of matter. Therefore, his jewels register a journey, combining minimalist delicacy and innovative experimentation to express the designer’s creative identity.
The jewels Antonio Bernardo designs emerge from wielding conceptual models. Paper, metal, threads, plates and other diverse flexible materials act as experimental instruments and replicate folds, creases, angles, movement and fittings which are recurrent in his designs.
