SAUER & CRISBARROS
Affective memories translated into jewels
Inveterate nomads and collectors of references for the places they visit, the designers Cris Barros and Stephanie Wenk have for some time nurtured the desire to create a four-handed jewelery collection.
In this process, we ended up realizing that most of the objects and jewelry we brought from our travels carried some signature of what each culture thinks about what is feminine, about what is most sacred. – Says Stephanie.
Thus was born the collection in partnership with CRIS BARROS. In exchanges of references on jewelry conquered over travels to places rich in history and ancestral savoir-faire, the designers have discovered the same passion for symbolic pieces of affective memories.
It was a way of honoring this network of women who support us at every moment of our lives and who are as curious about the world as we are – says Cris.
The face is an allusion to the moon, a symbol of biological rhythms, femininity and the phases of life. Each piece is carved by talented hands, and the pendant receives a shower of diamonds with black rhodium in the griffins, and rubies.
