THE STORY BEHIND OUR STRANDS
This is how it all started...
The word strand is defined as a fiber or group of fibers, that form one part of a length of rope, cord, thread, string... When we started on the path of creating this new concept, we began investigating and studying the colors, shapes and qualities on different kinds of strands of semi precious stones, hence the desire to name our new family of beaded gemstones STRANDS.
Wear your Semi Precious Strand with or without your Rock amulet...
"The piece was inspired by a beaded necklace in my personal jewelry collection. It is a semi precious strand that I would wear on repeat with my rock beauties. After making some key design decisions and studying the stones healing powers, we took it from there..." - our designer

Meet our talented long time Brazilian friend, Gaia. She is a spontaneous, beautiful, brilliant women, who started traveling to India and other Asian countries since a very young age. It was then that India became her second home and opened the path for her found career. Her long years of travels, hard work, eye in design, skills in sourcing, knowledge on textiles and tribal jewelry, has taken her to another level of expertise in her field. It is threw her passion for the old craftsmanship, working with artisans in their personal workshops on a limited and ethical production basis, that our atelier is able to acquire these handpicked top quality stones, turned into these stunning strands.
"The strand necklace that inspired this project came from one of her trips to India many years back. It has been one of my personal favorite layering necklaces since it came to me..." - our designer.
Meet our new talented jeweler friend Santosh, giving us a thumbs up from his own atelier in the heart of Jaipur, India. In this cozy workspace he creates his own designs, along with special client requests. He has been working with Gaia for many years now and has become her second hand. Together they arranged our strands, the way we had designed and envisioned. These are not the typical, same stone strands that you would see around. They are indeed the most eye catching strands you will ever see... and for good reasons. To produce one strand alone, we highly curated the perfect mix of faceted, cabochon and elongated semi precious stones. Each strand is then finished by us in our atelier, according to the design of each piece.
For the Mini Semi Precious Strand we sourced for the smallest stones possible, without compromising the supreme quality of the stones. We are currently working on sourcing new mini stones for our strands family. The atelier is thrilled on this new ongoing project, always designing, imagining and creating for you...
