Born to a Brazilian goldsmith, Silvia Furmanovich, launched her own brand in 1997; however, within the past few years, Silvia has sparked the jewelry world in awe with her Marquetry collections. After seeking inspiration in Western Brazil, Silvia came across skilled artisans who had mastered the age-old marquetry technique, an intricate process of assembling naturally-colored, hand-cut wood. Together, these artisans and Silvia have salvaged Amazonian wood to paint pictures and patterns, encased by gold and adorned with semi-precious and precious stones. Silvia’s curiosity of travel and cultures has taken us on journeys through Japan, along the Silk road and sojourned through Egypt, and through these ventures have employed unique and traditional craftsman techniques unique to each region into fine jewelry. Silvia’s collection is rich with the vibrancy of the natural world. Each piece is one-of-a-kind and is truly a work of art.
