Atelier Nómada is a contemporary jewellery brand founded by architect and urban designer Flavia Barar. For the past ten years, I have been travelling and living in Europe and South America and have been influenced by the experience of constantly shifting places – like a nomad. My work comprises a wide and diverse range – from public art installations, temporary architecture, to jewellery design.
In my Melbourne based studio I design and handcraft all pieces using precious metals such as Sterling Silver and Gold. My work expresses formal concepts such as clusters, nature and geometry in a spontaneous way, seeking for the "perfect imperfection". It is the sophisticated antithesis between the planned, architectural and structured, and the free form, the organic and the irregular that shape different ranges of earrings, rings, pendants and brooches. It is the spontaneous composition and texture that gives my work a natural and haptic perception.
