We personally love their new line, The Ritratto Collection, and the delicate way they pair beautiful crystals with bold colour.

In January, Jane Fonda Wrote fondly of them in her Instagram post pre-Oscars.

“At Oscars wearing Pomellato jewellery because it only uses responsible, ethically harvested gold and sustainable diamonds.”

Carlota Guardia

@carlotaguardia.jewelry

As a young girl in Venezuela, Carlota spent hours with her aunt in her jewellery shop. It was there, surrounded by abstract handmade designs, that she quickly formed an obsession with gemstones. After being in New York, Barcelona and Switzerland for her architectural studies, Carlota decided to launch her own American jewellery brand in 2017 instead.

Little Hurricane Co. is a Melbourne-based, handmade jewellery label, established in 2017 by Liat Galon. After spending 20 years in the corporate world, she was surprised to find that becoming a mother brought out her creative side, so rather than returning to project management, she turned her artistic hobby into her work.

My heart goes out to everyone suffering the devastating affects of the bushfires raging around Australia, and as horrific images flood in via the news and through social media I have been sitting here trying to figure out how I can help. I had recently begun the process of joining 1% for the Planet, an amazing global environmental movement in which businesses commit 1% of gross sales each year to approved non profit partners. Given the urgent need for funds right here so close to home however, I have decided to donate this lump sum directly to a charity that can assist those affected by the bushfires. If you too are able to help, I ask you to consider just some of these charities who all do amazing work: @cfavic @nswrfs @redcrossau @salvosau and @wireswildliferescue ❤️ Let’s band together in this horrible time and make a difference. #helpaustralia #australiaisburning #australia #australianfires #saveaustralia

Liat creates all of the Little Hurricane Co. lines in her home studio and works with only environmentally sound materials, including eco-resin, which is a petroleum-free bio-based product. She collects botanicals from her garden or from the bush on the outskirts of the city and then carefully presses and dries each one, ready to be preserved into delicate, ephemeral, wearable art. True eco-friendly jewellery.

“My jewellery emerges in the encounter between traditional gold-smithing and sculptural jewellery art.”

Every piece of eco-friendly jewellery is handcrafted in Sarah’s workshop in Copenhagen. She strives for her jewellery and production to have as little impact on the environment as possible. By using environmentally conscious techniques and chemicals, she ends up with designs that are rough and ragged in the daintiest of ways. 925 sterling silver or gold and all stones Sarah uses are either fairtrade diamonds or natural gemstones mined under sustainable conditions.

This year has been exciting, overwhelming, exhausting and absolutely amazing!🙌🏼💥 So many major things have happened in my little business. The building of Studio 13O with my amazing partner-in-crime @stinevesten. Making my art project 'Mourning Period' and exhibit at 2 big art exhibitions. Making my new webshop. And the move and building of @designkollektivetdk’s new shop space in Jægersborggade 5 🌟 . But even though 2019 has been a lot of moving and building, I've also had time to do what I love the most!✨ I’ve had the honor of creating bespoke engagement and wedding rings for 58 sweet couples and the pleasure of creating jewellery for even more lovely people 💘 Running a one-woman-business is a lot of work, and even though it doesn’t always look like it on social media, it sure can be tough at times. But during this year I’ve come to learn that I honestly can’t imagine doing anything else. I've never before worked so passionately for anything, and I feel so very fortunate that I get to create jewellery you wish to wear and attach meaning and memories to 💓🙌🏼✨ . Now that 2019 is coming to an end I want to take a moment to thank you for your support this year!💛 Thank you for all the likes and sweet comments in here. Thank you for your visits in Studio 13O. And thank you so much for choosing me to create your jewellery! My business wouldn't exist without your support!💛 I hope you all enjoy the last few days of 2019 and wish you all a happy new year!💥
