Capturing Copacabana

Laura Serrafero approaches jewelry making as an artist, using her skills as a sculptor and painter to create small-scale works of art that are meant to be worn. She carves each design out of wax, creates a mold, and casts the pieces in silver. She then solders, sands and polishes each piece by hand at her studio in Toronto, Canada. Laura’s Rio collection was inspired by the famed mosaic sidewalks of Copacabana in Rio De Janeiro. She translated the undulating sidewalk geometries into three dimensions, creating earrings and bracelets that evoke the fluid, sinuous forms of Copacabana. There’s a lightness about Laura’s Rio interpretation, which is intricate and refined without being too literal or heavy-handed. That balance is tough to achieve, but Laura makes it seem effortless. For yourself or someone special, her elegant Rio collection is a gift to be treasured.

    Hello, my name is Laura Serrafero. I'm very excited to be launching the Rio Collection today on The Daily Grommet.

    It's a collection of sterling silver jewelry, handcrafted in Toronto Canada. So..take a break today and think about how great you would look wearing a pair of Rio earrings, or perhaps the Rio bracelet for a loved one !!

    I will be available today to answer any questions or concerns you may have about my jewelry. Thank you !

    I can't tell from the pics...what kind of backings are on the earrings?

    Also, on the triple earrings...could those be made into quads?

    Thank you! The jewelry is gorgeous!

    Stella,

    the triple earrings have sterling silver posts and butterflies, they could certainly be made with 4 shapes

    thank you
