Natalia Tapety is a Brazilian architect and designer, currently expanding her jewelry brand in Chile and living in both countries. While attending university, she took courses of parametric modeling and digital fabrication around the world. The fascination for technology employed in architecture generated the will to implement it in an area that it still unusual.
Over time, the manual making began to have fundamental importance in the process of work and creation. The architect was dedicated to study goldsmithing and to implant this new knowledge in the development of pieces. Today her work as a jeweler is defined by the mixture of her background as a curious architect, anxious to try new materials and mix production techniques. His greatest inspirations are the arts, especially the plastic arts.
"My work brings architecture and jewelry together, with unusual and creative designs that have to stand out by themselves, like a piece of art does. And just like a piece of art, the intention of my work involves concept and history in such a way that the accessory is deeply connected with your own story. I do my best to simplify the process of jewelry making and therefore, choose accessible materials, so the pieces can be acquired by everyone. In this way, it is also possible to value the idea, creation and design of the piece besides the added value or the nobility of the material. The combination of digital fabrication and handmade fabrication also brings out a more fresh and contemporary jewelry design. I love both technology and handmade work and that's is also part of my architecture background. Ours clients love to wear a meaningful accessory that they can connect with, I hope you like it too and I will be happy to tell you all about your favorite LAMA’s piece."
