Gabriella Kiss is a designer my dear friends Sia and Amy introduced me to at Couture. I didn’t fall in love with the line then, but a new employee at my company was rocking an amazing Gabriella Kiss stack earlier this week and I began exploring her designs more closely. The conclusion I came to is that these pieces make me so, so happy. Kind of like the album I discuss later in this post, the designs had to grow on me - it wasn’t love at first sight.
Gabriella Kiss designs for the love of designing - she is one of those elite designers who is very selective about where their work is sold and not concerned with marketing or social media.
As the daughter of a scientist, she combines her design sense with inspiration from the life cycles of the natural world. Before carving and casting pieces she carefully studies the item to perfect every detail. Her jewelry focuses on the nuances of nature’s beauty in a flawless way.
She successfully creates pieces that are both poetic and scientific.
The quirky, yet elegant figurative designs are my favorite, but I also love the very simple pieces which show off the beauty of the stones and metal.
