About me...

I am a Chilean contemporary designer seeking to value the insignificant with my portable objects.

The Jewels have been made in the workshop and they are all designed by me. I care about details and I am inspired by nature and my surroundings. I develop unique pieces and jewelry with controlled production. The jewels have a long process of previous experimentation, in which I am defining shapes, finishes and composition.

I like working with different metals, and I use sterling silver (950) in most of them. I also use copper, bronze, aluminum and 304 steel.

My mind is 100% procrastinating, that makes me jump from one topic to another, from one collection to another, intertwining them.

My workshop assistant is Betty and we complement each other very well, to be able to make the jewels that are available in this online store a reality.

I place orders and customize designs if you want changes in color or size, do not hesitate to send me an email to Contact at the bottom of the page.

Oh, and we offer all this at the price you deserve: a fair price!

Sometimes I use discount codes and do promotions. And since you deserve them more than anyone, you will be able to know them all through the newsletter.

I invite you to follow the Instagram Ana Nadjar

if you want to have news of new products or exhibitions of contemporary jewelry.
