Elena Estaun is a creator who decided to translate her ideas into conceptual jewelry pieces. Inspired by everyday objects, she takes something’s primary function and converts it into a piece of wearable art.
Since childhood, Elena felt a passion for jewelry design, and after earning degrees at the Parsons School of Design in New York and Central Saint Martins in London, she decided to follow her passion as a profession.
Her style often weds industrial, urban and primal motifs to create a new concept of elegance.
Nuts, bolts, and old keys are often the sources of inspiration for this young artist from Barcelona, as are organic shapes such as bones, fossils, and even creatures that are assembled into sophisticated rings, necklaces, pendants, earrings, belts, or bracelets.EXPLORE ELENA ESTAUN
