One inspired by Indigenous Tupi-Guarani tribe, “Purangaw” meaning “beauty” and “happiness”. Delicate detailed prediction of highly skilled-crafted feathers in 18 carat gold pieces show on display. The staff are on hand to offer explanation behind each piece. Feathers are symbolic to the Indigenous people of Brazil meaning ‘to be closer to God’ and ‘lightness’.

The other collection which sought its source of inspiration from right outside the of the door of the store; “Orixás” symbols of Candomblé. Orixás are a strong representation of Afro-Brazilian culture with strong links to Africa in syncretism with Catholic Saints. Discover which symbol best represents you.

Are you following my student blog? The Educationally Frustrated Student

“I’m EF*ed - Educationally Frustrated!" And I’ve felt this way for a very long time… I’m part of a eurocentric Higher Education system that tends to forget that a student like me exists: Black, African, and Female.

And besides that, society tells me I can’t build a career as a journalist without a BA… www.theEFedStudent.wordpress.com
