MARĂ?A LASARGA

Immersed in a family environment linked to art and design, and very encouraging of manual skills, she started developing a taste and exploring those areas from a very young age.

She studied Industrial Design at the Design Center University School of Montevideo. Her love for accessories since she was little led her to experiment at the School’s jewellery workshop. Upon completion of her degree, she was awarded a scholarship to study jewellery making in Italy, which ultimately determined her vocation for this enticing work of combining art and design in an item which is much more than just jewellery.

THE JEWELLS Jewellery that tells a story. A ring or a pendant are much more than simple accessories; each one stems from inspiration that captures the spirit of the materials. The reason behind the origin of this jewellery is to fuse materials not commonly used in traditional jewellery making to convey emotions though them.

catalogue 9

THE MATERIALS Each collection results from experimentation and a search for content that transforms the piece of jewellery in a small piece of the wearer’s soul. These are unique items which seek to go beyond the trends, through a personality of their own, in order to last in time, creating an emotional bond with its owner and highlighting their individuality.


THE PROCESS

marĂ­a lasarga

10

Experimentation and design come hand in hand, the materials are intertwined, deconstructed, and then they gather strength to create jewellery which evokes affection and tells a story through its design.

This jewellery is timeless, with great conceptual and emotional baggage which acquire a new meaning with a unique approach of its own.

LA HORA DEL TÉ

Porcelain is the toughest of all ceramics, and a component of the finest and most exclusive china. Its texture, resistance and delicateness award it a privileged spot among manmade materials. Porcelain finds its roots in Asia, and its manufacture was kept a secret, reason why it was sometimes known as “white gold”.

The Uruguayan way of producing wool makes this country a firstquality producer of this material. Felt is obtained by fussing wool fibres with a millenary technique which uses pressure, heat and humidity. From this process, an unwoven fabric of unusual firmness is obtained. The produced material is waterproof, an essential feature for the development of this collection.

Sand grains are fused, and together they create a magical world of luminous impressions and impossible textures. Glass was first developed in Egypt, and its first use was in jewellery making. This hard but fragile, transparent and shapeless material is fused with metal to gather strength and beauty.

Agate stone is created from volcanoes that are seen on Earth in the form of solid lava. The main feature of these stones is their series of concentric bands in similar colours, opaque and translucent. They were highly praised by past civilizations, who claimed they possessed purifying properties and they recharged energies.

Black was first used in jewellery making in 19th Century England, since Queen Victoria’s mourning would only allow her to wear that colour throughout her attire. The matte-black colour of rubber, together with silver, aims at a contrast of colours and textures to create rhythmic and geometrical pieces.

China is a family symbol inherited throughout the generations which relives family moments involving feelings and affection. We want to transform those moments into a piece of timeless jewellery which will always be with you.

With that purpose in mind, we offer a series of models off our collection, La Hora del Te (Teatime), to transform that special china into a piece of jewellery which allows us to capture that value.

TANIA & EDUARDO 55

The bride and groom visited us before their wedding, looking for the ideal jewellery to symbolize their union. Wanting to avoid traditional wedding bands, they came up with the idea of making a piece of jewellery off an element with a previous history, and from which they could write one of their own. The story tells that sometimes... vintage things can give us the chance to write a new page!


PROCESS

1. Sending the porcelain

marĂ­a lasarga

56

Decide on the item you want to transform. It can be in perfect shape, chipped or cracked in large pieces. We can use plates of all sizes, but we cannot use cups or trays. The item must be packaged to arrive in the best shape possible.

2.Creation at the atelier Once at the atelier, we try to salvage with every cut the most interesting portion of the porcelain, so that each little piece identifies part of the plate, and therefore, the story it tells.


3. Jewellery We make the piece of jewellery in 925 sterling silver, based on established designs. We select the drawn pieces and we choose the most representative and interesting one for the type of jewellery selected. We then prepare it and send it to the client.
