Sónia Nunes, who lives and works in Portugual, is the Designer-Maker at Moldarina®. With a degree in Social Education, she worked eleven years in social housing areas of Lisbon, Almada and Coimbra.
In 2006 she experienced the pleasure of creating jewelry, after a casual visit at a supply store. Since then she started a self-taught path where she learned to embroider, knit, crochet, sew, photograph, among many other things.
Opening moldarina in 2011 was the outcome of this journey and a turning point in her career, because she decided to dedicate herself full time to this project. Slowly molded and affectionately made by hand, all Moldarina® jewels are one-of-a kind and the outcome of Sónia Nunes passion for what is beautiful, delicate and sensitive.
People and their thoughts, relationships and feelings are her greatest source of inspiration. All jewels are made of natural fabrics such as cotton, linen and wool and other materials like wood, cotton thread and paper.
