Cris Barbedo is the designer behind Barbedo Studio. She makes handcrafted jewelry using sterling silver, gold, semi-precious and precious stones.
She loves the process of having an idea, designing it with wax, or fabricating with metal using fire, tools and experimenting with texture. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t, and for her, that is also an exciting part of the process.
She finds inspiration in everything that catches her attention, like art, nature, architecture and people as she sees Jewelry as an intimate and symbolic object.
Her passion for art history taught her to understand the symbolism behind a piece of metal that embellishes one’s body and expresses one’s personality.
With a strive to make jewelry that is well made and comfortable to the touch, she aspires to give the wearer a meaningful connection to her design.
