HYDRA the most popular of Claudia Jaffés collections, particularly the rings that 'fit like a glove'.
It simply molds to your body, it becomes part of you, it's like it melts into you, hence you are going to find that in most cases, once you wear one of these rings it is going to be wit you 24/7 ...you feel nude without it!
As all of Claudias jewelry, it is based on inspirations taken from nature, from her travels and adventures. She adores to be in the water, jungle, forrest, experiment different cultures, weathers...and take pictures, by doing this ideas flow and flow.
Hydra represents water to Claudia, the different patterns water can take in the sand and somehow solidify this beauty onto us.
ECHOES is the one collection that is most opened to each individuals eye. I am amazed over and over again over the years, how I have found myself in situations with clients describing me literally stories they see in the rings, particularly the bangles of...people!
Therefore, Echoes is about PEOPLE, as if we could almost say the 'Echoing of the People' reflected in the -people-
Very unique, private, solid, strong and above all: INDIVIDUAL.
SOUL is the collection I started with. To me, it is the most connected to Earth, hence the name. It has the most texture, each curve is always taken from the trees, branches and in particular: their roots, they are what fascinates me the most. In New Zealand their national tree is the so called "Pohotukawa" a tree that also 'announces' the summer with its red flowers (therefore also known as Christmas Tree),... it is one of the trees that has most fascinate me, due to the way it grows... the roots tend to be
very visible to the surface, on cliffs and so on.. an allure for inspiration! Speaking of which, there is a Pohotukawa on the cliff of the very northern tip of New Zealand called Cape Reinga, it is said by the maoris that it is from that tree that the spirits leave their bodies when they die. Nevertheless, flowers and other trees I am a huge fan of too, in Venezuela we have so many species endemic to our country, yet alone on the surface of the magical "tepuys" (table-mountains, eldest rock formations on Earth)
SEVENINONE is a piece that you can wear in at least seven different ways... with this in your purse, you will be dressed for any surprise situation that may arise. Seven are only the amount of different necklaces you can get out of it.
Other ways of wearing it are: as a bracelet and as a belt of course!
