La Petra és una dissenyadora gràfica de Croàcia, que recentment ha descobert en el món de la joiera un altra manera d’expressió artística. Molt influenciada pel grafisme les seves joies són molt visuals i de formes molt reveladores.

Petra is a Croatia based graphic designer, she discovered recently the jewelry as another way of artistic expression. Very influenced by graphic her jewelry is very visual and with interesting shapes.

“As graphic and jewelry designer I explore copper, brass and silver, playing also with wool and wood. I am always trying to give my creations names inspired with their final form, thus giving them a personal touch. This is why every piece has its own story. Have fun exploring the box of my little wonders!”

MNesmalts // Montserrat Núñez



Passejant pel Barri Gòtic, just a la cantonada del Carrer St. Honorat amb el C. St. Sever, hi ha la botiga-taller de Montserrat Núñez. Esmaltadora d’ofici de més de 25 anys, artesana i creadora de MNesmalts, i amb una infinitat de dissenys i joies per tots els gustos i edats. Conec la Montse des de fa uns anys i admiro tant la seva feina com la seva manera de fer les coses, senzilla i directa, amb una seguretat i coneixement de l’art de l’esmalt, i sempre amb bon humor i un somriure. Si us agraden les joies personalizades i úniques, modernes però fetes amb una tècnica ancestral, no us podeu perdre la seva botiga-taller. Ah! I ara també té una botiga on-line!

Walking through the Gothic Quarter, just on the corner of St. Honorat and St. Sever, there is Montserrat Núñez workshop. Over the last 25 years she has been enameling, crafting and designing pieces of MNesmalts, jewels and objects for all tastes and ages. I know Montse since a few years ago and  I admire her work as her way of doing things simply and directly, with the knowledge of the art of enamel, and always with good humor and a smile. If you like personalized and unique jewelry, modern but made ??with an ancient technique, don’t miss her workshop. Oh! And now she has an online store!

“My jewelry refers to the botanical world with its riotous clash of cobalt, chartreuse, and magenta. I am drawn to the lush, psychotropic-like blossoms, evolved to entice insects into their elegant geometry ensuring mutual survival. All that sumptuous, unabashed beauty is purposeful, and it sweeps me away as a voyeur to the spectacle. The seductive, temporal nature of flowers with their quirky technicolor architecture clamors for my attention as an artist.”
