Mana Bernardes a Brazilian designer

8 07 2012

This week I have discovered a very creative Brazilian artist designer from Rio de Janeiro. Some fashion magazines call Mana Bernardes ‘the jewellery magician’. She became famous for transforming trash in to fashion.

Made with recycled PET bottles

For 10 years she has been using recycled materials to design and produce amazing jewellery. Beautiful necklaces, bracelets, hair clips and other accessories made of PET bottles, marbles, rope and even hairpins! I love it so much that I have pinned some fantastic items in to my Pinterest board under ‘Fashion’.

Mana worked and exposed her creations in Paris, Los Angeles, New York and many cities in Brazil. Her creativity is fresh, trendy and full of joy! She also writes poems. Her book ‘Mana e Manuscritos’ was published by the editor ‘Aeroplano’. Very active Mana also gives conferences, works with some Brazilian NGO’s teaching kids to make jewelry with recycled materials.

Unfortunately her website is in Portuguese, but the link below shows an archive of some of her amazing creations. I just love it!
