Carolina Vallejo’s jewelry is so simple and elegant, but it makes a beautiful statement. The Airport collection “is a series of simple jewellery referring to travel memories. The jewellery is made from silver and porcelain tiles from Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris. Just as she arrived here, Vallejo was enjoying the architecture in Terminal 2 where the floor and the walls consist of small, round, porcelain tiles. A man restoring the floor gave her a couple of loose tiles and the idea of a series of jewellery began to take shape. The end result was a bracelet, a brooch, a ring, earrings and cufflinks. The series is to be expanded with mementos of other airports.”
