Andrea Vaggione

In 2001, Andrea Vaggione discovered the world of contemporary jewelry in her hometown Córdoba, Argentina. She moved to Barcelona in 2005 and worked for 5 years at Laura B where she discovered forging techniques. In 2012, she won the “Talents de Mode” contest and set up her workshop in Lyon at the Village des créateurs to develop her business.

Her jewels are the converging of the craftsman’s skills, art and design. This delicate and refined work, infused with botany and plants, focuses on the concepts of permanent transformation, perpetual motion, birth and rebirth. The uncluttered minimalist jewels with a hint of ingenuity reflect both the strength and fragility of the designer.

Vaggione’s work studies the patterns of nature, its proportions and inflorescences. It is a reflection on nature and the flowers are a symbol of continuity that remind us that we can always start again, be reborn, reinvent. She chose to work in silver, combining strength and subtlety, using both traditional techniques (manual) and innovative processes calling on contemporary technologies. The sobriety of this material contrasts with the ephemeral beauty of flowers.
