Passionate about Ottoman and Art Deco architecture present in ancient Beirut, it is from this fusion that Selim draws his inspiration. His explorational character likes to confront the past with modernity and his jewels testify to heritage in perpetual movement.
The rosette motifs of the Beirut line are available in endless compositions thanks to the poetry of old-fashioned diamonds. The chiseled stars of the Istanbul skies are set with explosive-colored stones and the Kastak necklaces with their many charm's evoke the gusset watches of the dandies of the past century. The jewels of Selim Mouzannar are powerful pieces.
As a young Brazilian jewelry designer, Carla Amorim, created her brand in 1992. Carla’s work has three major inﬂuences from her native Brazil - Architecture, Nature, and Culture.Carla’s work is indeed contemporary, fresh, feminine, and delicate. She makes excellent use of the remarkable variety of Brazilian stones that furnish her work with radiance and color. All her pieces use 18-carat gold, mostly matte in yellow, white, rose and black and are produced in Sao Paulo, Brazil, at her own facility.www.CarlaAmorim.com.br
