I'm a Jeweler.
And I'm a Painter.
The Joana Simões Joalharia de Autor ® brand was launched in 2002, and it evolves daily in the Atelier Pedra de Toque, in Lisbon.
The Painting degree by the Faculty of Fine Arts and the Professional Jewelry degree by the Contacto Directo Jewelry School provided me with tools to do what I like the most: explore, experiment, create.
I develop my work in a passionate balance between these three forms, and every day I try to go a little bit further and get a little bit closer.
I like to use silver and pliers, paints and brushes to create organic shapes that convey what I feel to those who wear them.
