Vangloria de Vanessa Pires

Hoje vou falar-vos dos trabalho do uma Joalheira Profissional, Vanessa Pires.
E as maiúsculas estão bem empregues, garanto-vos.
E não é para menos.
Cimentada por um valioso currículo, que podem consultar no seu blog, esta designer de joalharia aplica conceitos e imagens inovadores no seus projectos, que bem demonstram o amor à sua arte.

Today I´m going to talk to you about a professional Jeweler, Vanessa Pires.
Cemented by a rich curriculum, which you can see can in her blog, this designer jewelery applies innovative concepts and images in her projects, that demonstrate the love to her art.

Pi Brooch

Licenciada em Marketing e Publicidade pela IADE, no ano em que terminou o curso, continuou a estudar, desta vez no Design gráfico.
Em 2004 iniciou a formação na Joalharia, tendo realizado o seu estagio Profissional na oficina "Sinais de Encanto" de 2008 a 2010.
A participação em exposições, assim como o primeiro prémio no concurso APIO2009  "Arte Nova", atestam a excelência do trabalho desta artista.
Abriu a sua loja on-line, Vangloria, em Outubro de 2011, onde podem adquirir os seus trabalhos maravilhosos, e onde poderão verificar a maravilha de trabalhos que faz, as técnicas utilizadas e os desenhos maravilhosos que projecta.

With a degree Marketing and Advertising, in the same year she finished it, she take another course in Graphic Design.
In 2004, she inciated her Jewelry formation, and made a professional internship in  Sinais de Encanto between 2008 and 2010.
Her participation in various exhibitions and the first prize in the contest  APIO2009  "Arte Nova, testify to quality of her work.
She oppened her online shop in October 2010, Vangloria,  where you ca buy her wonderfull pieces.

O nome de marca surge do facto de "vanglória" estar associada à vaidade e deste modo ao uso de jóias, utilizando as três primeiras letras do seu nome "Vanessa" e sendo"Glória" o talismã para o sucesso da marca.
Alem do nome, criou também o logo.

She created the brandmark and logo.
Vangloria means vainglory, and its fored by the three first letters of her name, and Gloria, the talisman for the brand's success.
Dot & Comma Ring
Como qualquer artesão neste país, luta com a falta de poder económico de potenciais clientes, sendo que a loja on-line sem duvida propicia a exposição a outros mercados, países e consumidores.
Os seus trabalhos incluem prata, cobre, botões vintage, pedras, algumas semi preciosas, não se limitando a estes, sendo que o desenho da peça pode impor a introdução de novos materiais.

As any other crafter, she strikes with the lack of founds from her potencial clients and the online shop is a way t expose her wonderful work to new markets, costumers and countries.
Her works are made from sterling silver, copper, vintage buttons, semiprecious stones, and others,  required by the design of the piece.

Sugar free Brooch
Estes materiais são depois serrados, fundidos, soldados, repuxados, polidos ou oxidados, de acordo com o projecto em mente.

These materials are then sawn, cast, welded, drawn back, polished or oxidized, according to the project in mind.
