Julieta Alvarez’s ceramic accessories and jewelry are anything but traditional. Run by sisters Julieta and Rocio Alvarez, the Spanish brand works with natural materials, breathing fresh air into traditional artisanal techniques.
With a fashion and graphic design background, Julieta Alvarez decided to experiment with ceramics after taking a crash course. “I needed a change and I decided to take a course imparted by Resu Labrador, an artisan that had a workshop near home,” she recalled in an interview with Cup of Couple. “I used to go there full of ideas, and she taught me different techniques to achieve my objectives. Since then, I haven’t stopped!”
Inspired by nature, Julieta Alvarez admits she fell in love with ceramics because of the spontaneity of the material itself, which allows her to craft almost anything. “You can experiment with it, try new things, learn, make jewelry, sculptures or just disconnect from the world and lose track of time,” she explained.
Their unique pieces are available in selected stores around the globe and have also been showcased at galleries and international museums. Check out some of their highlights in the gallery below:
