THE MEANING OF IT ALL
We create Jewellery Inspired by Matter
From the beginning, we have defied traditional notions of what jewellery is supposed to be. Our approach emphasizes concept and meaning over economical value, producing pieces with inherent emotional worth. The Carla_M.. brand is synonymous with original, comfortable pieces that never fail to catch everyone’s attention. It doesn’t have to be shiny. If it’s Carla_M., then you’ll know it is
High-End Synthetic Jewellery
After an important first exposure in EXD’09 Experimenta Design, 2010 saw the brand take giant steps, with presences in Messe Frankfurt, MoMa NY and MoMat Japan establishing it as something to pay attention to.
2011 continued to establish Carla Matos as a respected jewellery author, with several exhibitions all around Europe and the debut of her work in Bijorhca Paris.
In 2012, Carla Matos was an Invited Designer for Samsung’s “Designed by Humans Campaign”. Other highlights of the year were the presence at the Grammy Awards Red Carpet in Los Angeles and being selected by Maksen as one of the top 5 “Next Big Ideas”. Paris once more meant success and growth for the brand with the “Sheriff de Mode” award at Bijohrca.
2013 and 2014 saw Carla’s creations continue to gain exposure with, among others, the “Upcycling – Upcoming” exhibition in Oporto’s Serralves Museum, a showcase in JOYA Barcelona Jewellery Fair and a continued presence in Paris.
