Lucia approaches her work as a problem-solver. When designing jewelry objects, she begins by exploring the unique or unusual ways in which the piece could be worn, questioning what it could provide for the wearer apart from its aesthetic qualities. She challenges herself to look beyond the conventions of everyday jewelry by incorporating clever mechanisms in her designs that encourage the wearer to interact with the piece in more ways than one.
Launched in 2014, Lucia Pearl aims to bring innovative products to the mainstream market. Each piece is handcrafted in Brooklyn, NY, using a range of traditional and inventive techniques, gleaned from years of experience and travel abroad. Raw materials serve as inspiration for the line, rendering the work utilitarian and architectural. Pieces are designed to be convertible and interactive but appear effortless and elegant.
