WARA DESIGNS is a jewellery line celebrating contemporary design, historic techniques and raw materials.
It is a travel through time and space, picking its inspiration through ancient and modern cultures, expressed in clean geometric lines.
WARA DESIGNS follows the journey of French silversmith Caroline Daoulas. Her jewellery reflects, in clean geometric lines, her admiration for the heritage of metal jewellery in ancient civilizations from around the world.
Caroline was born in France and lived many years abroad mostly in South America and South East Asia, each place leaving a strong influence on her style.
She trained as a silversmith while living in Peru. As a tribute, she chose WARA DESIGNS as her brand name - Wara Wara meaning 'stars' in Aymara (an ancestral language still spoken in parts of The Andes).
During the following 7 years, in the buzzing energy of Vietnam, the brand truly grew and Caroline established herself as a jewellery designer and maker.
For her return to Europe, Caroline has chosen the beautiful island of Ibiza to start a new adventure and continue her journey of jewellery making.
THE MAKING PROCESS
Craftsmanship is the benchmark for quality and unique jewellery. Every piece of WARA DESIGNS is handmade one piece at a time. The metal is shaped, forged, hammered, soldered, polished using specific tools and requiring skilled labour until it is transformed into a one-of-a-kind piece of jewellery.

ETHICAL VALUES : Uniqueness and Sustainability
Original designs and quality craftsmanship are the essence of the brand. The intention is to create Wearable Art that will come to its final expression by the contact of the body of the wearer and reveal a glimpse of his/her personality.
Creating products that are unique and irreplaceable is the positive answer to a disposable world. It promotes a "slow fashion” culture and encourages a more sustainable model environmentally, economically and socially. These values help to keep the beautiful art of craftsmanship alive but they have also encouraged some changes in techniques to make the production more environmentally friendly.
