Well-versed with an architectural background, Ana Cláudia launched her jewelry company, Ana Cláudia Design, with the intention of merging the two and she did just that with her collection, Archetype. Drawing inspiration from structures in both her current home of Brooklyn and a previous home on an island south of Brazil, the line pays homage to all things in architecture.

Façade collection

The line is broken up into two styles, Façade and Truss-t, which very much fall in line with what they are named for. I love her use of copper and brass, along with sterling silver and silver-plated.
