Minimalistic jewellery

  • • Berta's jewellery pieces reflect geometric shapes
  • • She set up her atelier and shop in Barcelona in 2015
  • • She creates custom made pieces for her clients

Jewellery for Berta Sumpsi is a constant dialogue between the maker, the wearer, and the observer. She creates rings, bracelets, and brooches, among other minimalistic pieces of jewellery that move away from the more conventional and commercial jewellery. Through her creations, she explores geometric forms and a pure language, always considering the connection between craftsmanship, contemporary thinking, and design. She defines her creative process as a journey towards synthesis. Her work has been exhibited in different museums and galleries in Spain and around the world. In 2015 she opened her studio and shop in Gràcia, a trendy district of Barcelona. Everyday life in her surroundings, architecture, art, and graphic design are her major sources of inspiration.
