Trunfio Universe by Australian beauty, Nicole Trunfio

Passionate about the strict geometry of the Egypt pyramids Nicole Trunfio creates her collection according to the trend. The Australian designer tries to combine the timelessness and the look to the future. All of her adornments have rigorous angular shapes. But in my opinion this conceals peculiar elegance.

The center of the first collection is the TRUNFIO Universe bracelet. The main trick of that bracelet is that you can build your own using online service. The line of materials used by the designer is very wide: sterling silver, 14k gold, rose gold, silver, and black rhodium, quartz and diamonds.

The Story of a Jeweler: Nadine Essra

I studied fine art at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), graduating in 2008 with a BFA in General Fine Arts. During my final semester at MICA I discovered a Jewelry 101 course offered through the Continuing Studies department. When my grandfather passed away in 2004 I inherited his jeweler’s tools, equipment, and remaining raw materials as well as his collection of precious and semi-precious gemstones that he collected over a period of 20+ years along his travels throughout the US. I had long been interested in taking a jewelry course in order to learn how to use these tools, and four years later finally found my chance.

Having always been more attracted to the more process-oriented art forms, in metal-smithing I found a new world of possibilities opened up to me. Since taking this jewelry course, I have continued to develop my skills at the workbench through trial and error, practice and persistence. I began my business “Nadine Essra Designs” in 2010.
