Carol Kauffmann, a native Brazilian, is inspired by contemporary art, architecture, travel and modern technologies. These are the forces that shape both her life and her jewelry designs.
Carol began her design career in fashion as a textile designer specializing in swimwear. After studying to become a goldsmith and jeweler in the early 2000’s, her fine jewelry collection was born.
Carol’s unique and original designs in 18kt. gold burst with the bright colors of gemstones native to her country. The synergy between the gold and diverse hue’s of the Brazilian gemstones create a textile-like finish of bold pattern in color, at once contemporary yet classic. Each piece from Carol’s collections is hand-crafted at her atelier in Sao Paolo, Brazil.
“I want someone to wear my pieces at any time and not be able to identify the period they were created,” Carol says. “Clients who purchased my jewellery 10 years ago tell me that they feel like my designs are as current as if they had bought them today.”
