Profile: Paulo was born in 1966 in Pouso Alto State of Minas Gerais in Brazil.In 1984 moved to Sao Paulo in order to study History at the "Faculdade Metropolitanas Unidas" where he completed his degree. Beside it he became interested in jewellery and in parallel to his university studies he started learning the techniques of basic and advanced jewellery at the "Escola de Manufatura e Alquemia Bobby Stepanenko". In 1996 went to London where he stayed for three years studying Design and Manufacture of Jewellery and Silversmith at the London Guildhall University - Sir John Cass Faculty of Arts, Design and Manufacture. Added to this, Paulo also took an extra course at the same university and became technician on enamel and advanced silversmith. In London he opened an arts workshop together with other artists at the much known area of Clerkenwell Road. A much preferred location for the majority of designers in the city. In 1999, Paulo returns to Brazil. He now lives in Buzios state of Rio de Janeiro - Brazil, where he owns a workshop and a jewellery outlet which sells what he designs, as well as pieces created by other jewellers, designers and artists. His shop is a reference for the best pieces of jewellery and design in the region. His works can also be found in other countries such as United Kingdom, Argentina and Luxemburg. His jewels and art objects are mainly designed with geometric or asymmetric three-dimensional forms. The materials are carefully and deliberately chosen to display the uniqueness of its chromatic elements and its luminosity which are clearly reflected through the movement and finishing of each piece. The aesthetic of Paulo´s designs can be appreciated through its colour´s composition; volume and structure which translate an architectonic language as well as the modern and strong personality of the designer.
