Inspired by ancient cultures in which jewellery was not merely adornment, but rather a magical item endowed with supernatural powers, our fascination comes from the realm of dreams and imagination. Using the unconscious as a visionary and creative force that transcends age and culture, our pieces support, enhance and empower the wearer.
ORAÏK is a collaboration between Ukrainian born Elvira Golombosi and Colombian born Hector Lasso, who now live and work from Ibiza, Spain. Elvira is the creator, the priestess of parallel worlds who sculpts every piece by hand. Hector is the roots, the grounding rod that makes dreams possible thanks to his technical knowledge as a trained goldsmith. With backgrounds in sculpture and stone carving, they met while completing their Masters of Fine Art in Contemporary Jewellery and Gemstone Design in Idar-Oberstein, Germany. Their combined career highlights include a design internship with Lorenz Bäumer in the famous Place Vendôme as well as numerous awards, exhibitions and inclusions in publications.
Pieces of Eight is proud to be the exclusive Australian stockist of ORAÏK's jewels.
