Manuela is a Melbourne based jeweller. After moving to Australia from Portugal, she began to explore the diverse landscapes and fell in love with the local flora. With a background in mathematics, it seemed a natural progression to bring into her jewellery the organic textures and patterns hidden in nature. Manuela is nourished by serendipitous moments when gathering botanical elements from Australian reserves. Back to the studio, Manuela creates unique jewels made of silver and gold that perpetuate those nature elements. Wearing one of Manuela's creations is having an eternalized fraction of nature inspired by the vibrant culture of Australia.
