Spring Pendant - Joao Vaz



In a deliberate inversion of the norm, Portuguese designer Joao Vaz has set a Western Australian opal in carefully hand engraved acrylic and wrapped it in fine sterling silver, questioning the entire notion of value as he does so.  Joao’s newest collection, Soliloquy, riffs on four different emotional extremes in acrylic, precious metals, gems and glass, gently fusing the machine with the manmade.

Sydney-based designer Joao Vaz believes he has a responsibility to create pieces that make the heart flutter. “We need to remind ourselves from time to time of what it is to have consciousness, and a soul, and a heart, and feelings. We need to create work that really exacerbates this.”
