Marina Granica

Marina Granica works in Barcelona and creates unique and unusual textile handmade jewelry inspired by nature, old crafts and ancient cultures’ spirit. Air, earth water, fire and metal play an essential role in her designs. Nature’s five elements are always trying to find the right balance. Either using the spider strategy or the patience of a weaver, yarns hug each other and talk to one another creating endless combinations. She choose the yarns according to their sensuality, proximity, feeling on the skin and also their textures and colors to call other senses.
The textile ornaments of ancient cultures with their diversity of forms and techniques have always been inspired by the work – not only to make the thread, to weave, to sew and to embroider to dress but also for to be used at rites and celebrations.

Bean collection

The concept for this unique jewelry, is based on the idea of bean, the seed as device of life, that originates the process between measured and unpredictability, repetition and change, as potential latency. Its shape is interesting for its subtlety, between the symmetrical and geometric but organic and soft, referring to a living being. Hand made process of creations with care of every detail.
