Today we hear from Sebastian Bolivar jewellery, who will be joining us at our Racecourse fair on December 6th…
Please introduce yourself and your brand…..
From simple seed necklaces to sculptural filigree forms, SebastianBolivar | Jewellery & Decor combines cultures, styles, and historical techniques into pieces that are elegantly finished yet unique and artisanal.
Tell us a bit about your creations and how you make them….
SebastianBolivar is a young label born from the combined visions of myself (Sebastian Bolivar) and my creative partner Beatrice Cupido.
The techniques I use focus on simplicity and frugality.
“The smallest amount of tools needed to work the most beautiful raw materials will produce the most meaningful and powerful result.”
Due to the artisanal nature of my work, series are created in small batches and rarely reproduced.
How long have you been making your creations?
About 6 years
Do you have a best seller or most popular item?
As my collection is continually changing and I have sold my work in several countries there is no specific piece that I could call my best-seller. But for sure I can say that my feather earrings and tribal seed necklaces are always popular and my latest collection in copper and leather has had a lot of interest too.
What do you enjoy most about your craft/ work?
I love making things! I really enjoy working on larger pieces and complex commissions as well as sculptures and decorative pieces, but I think my greatest satisfaction comes from creating a complete collection. It is hard work and requires patience but the end result is so satisfying! 🙂
Will you be selling some festive themed creations at The Fairy Tale Fair?
No. But we will be showing a new collection with packaging that is designed as a perfect gift for a loved one at any time of year.
What are your plans or ambitions for the future, or have you already achieved them?
We have a clear idea of the direction we want to take our brand. We understand our customers and what kind of service and product they are looking for and hope to be able to develop our brand, its image and also the new collections into that package. We wish to expand the brand a little more into the realm of home Decor and possibly experimenting with clothes design too.
