Sibilia is every bit a reflection of Fernanda´s inspirational and colorful lifestyle. Her passion for art and travels throughout the world have informed the colors and textures of each collection. Fernanda is constantly researching and employing novel metalsmithing and jewelry making techniques. Like an alchemist in a lab, she manipulates bronze to create a rainbow of bold new colors and combinations.
Today, Fernanda and her talented team of over 15 artisans continue to meticulously make, by hand, jewelry and home accessories out of a full production and design studio in Buenos Aires.
The new collection is inspired by the malleable lines of Surrealist art's biomorphic forms, experimenting with concepts of persistent memory, dripping clocks and time which melts away as well as drawing on Fauvist references and Matisse's unique use of color and shape. Transgressive forms which go beyond simple mimicry. Bright vivid colors dominate the collection, with a botanical inspired fern green, Yves Klein's blue, coral and vintage monochrome - milky off white and soot black.
Patinas and oxides are meant to be kept dry. Don’t wear the items while washing your hands or bathing. Water may fade the colors.
