Lisbon Fashion Week: OLGA NORONHA

Olga Noronha is a rare jewel designer. Her creation turns prosthetics and cervical collars into jewels.

1385025_10152012589950555_141734041_nOlga Noronha, a 21 years old jewellery designer, has been relentlessly examining the relationship between bodies, attitudes and surroundings, both in the wearer’s and the audience’s points of view. She took her first steps in contemporary jewellery with 11 years, attending to Engenho & Arte School, Oporto.
Olga’s creations are never mere ornaments, but are art pieces that celebrate the marriage of sturdy mechanics and delicate anatomies. Constantly challenging and exploring the relationship of interactivity, Olga illustrates the connection between ‘to see’ and ‘to be seen’.
Wishing people not to be apathetic towards her work, whatever the reaction – good or bad, Olga welcomes doubts for they may lead to surprise.
Her pieces are a coherent mix of unconventional charm, exquisite, and boundary-pushing, a combination which makes it impossible not to distinguish her individuality amongst other jewellery designers.
