Say Hi to Tamara Bavdek From THIS ILK

Please introduce yourself 🙂 My name is Tamara Bavdek, I have a bachelors degree in Industrial Design. I’m passionate about dogs, surfing and all aspects of design and fashion from the artisan to the photography. I founded This Ilk in late 2008. I have travelled the world quite a bit as well… What do you love about making jewellery and how did you discover your passion? In fact as a child I wanted to be an inventor. I have an interest in art and sciences and always wanted to explore both which brought me to design school. I have always been a jewellery lover, I would always bring jewelry back from my travels as souvenirs and have always looked for the most original, interestingly handcrafted and well thought out pieces. I think the jewellery line however was more of a means to create something I could autonomously and relatively quickly complete with satisfying results. It came from the urge to…

Meet Irene Humet From OuiClementine

Please introduce yourself  🙂 Irene, 25-year-old, photographer by training and artisan by vocation, I combine daily two of the things that fascinate me the most. I live in Barcelona, although my roots are in La Garrotxa (Girona, North Spain) and my mind is still between these two very different and special places. Every day I remember the mountains I saw from my window and the sunlight streaming through the leaves of the trees. Music, the forest and chocolate are some of the things that I am grateful to life.

I learned a bit of macrame during a trip…

Marta de La Presa

I’m Marta de la Presa, jewelry designer and moments hunter, a bohemian spirit eager to discover the world. I am deeply inspired by nature, music and love. I am currently based out of Madrid, Spain , where I develop my jewelry bussines, but my home and heart are in the Canary Islands. I’m passionate about photography, so I had the idea to also create a webpage / instagram where to post my own photographs, called @capturingmomentsbymarta. What do you love about making jewellery and how did you discover your passion?  What I like most about  making jewelry  is that I can be myself. Is my way of expression, so I plaster all my personality, emotions, feelings in them. Since I was little girl I loved the gemstones, so I think that contributed too… lol 🙂 How did you venture into jewellery making? I found my vocation in my grandmother Matilde, who was also a jeweler. How would you describe your style? I…
