Portuguese-born Sydney-based jewellery designer Joao Vaz, who you may remember from his previous Project at Poepke, returns with a new collection: Clarice.

Secular and traditional, Clarice is a collection where exhibitionism and sensibility merge symbiotically. Born from hand-dyed acrylic and cubic zirconias, this collection traverses infinite colour variations, explored through both tonal contrast and symmetricity.

Clarice also makes use of a new way of tension setting stones, first developed by Joao Vaz for his 2014 collection Dark-Matter. This new development in the ancient tradition of stone setting, where the stones are held in place exclusively by the pressure of the acrylic, allowed the creation of these jewellery pieces which are simultaneously rich in detail and simplicity.
