UNAMĒ stands as a distinct jewelry collective
founded by the creative partnership of Augusto from Argentina and Ronja from Germany. Their collaboration seamlessly fuses Latin American warmth and passion with German precision and craftsmanship, resulting in a rich tapestry of cultural influences.
Augusto, rooted in Argentina, draws inspiration from the country’s natural beauty, particularly the rough costal line along the wild Atlantic Ocean, which deeply influences his artistic vision. His work embodies a sense of history and liberation, celebrating the raw, unadulterated beauty of nature.
Ronja, born and raised in Germany, brings a keen eye for detail and precision, reflecting the discipline and technical finesse of traditional craftsmanship. Her designs elegantly intertwine the intricate beauty of the natural world with the precision of German design, creating a unique synthesis of diverse cultural elements.
Together, Ronja and Augusto craft jewelry that tells a compelling story of unity through diversity, transcending geographical borders and cultural boundaries. Their Berlin-based Atelier serves as a creative melting pot, where innovative ideas are nurtured, concepts are refined, and raw materials are transformed into exquisite jewelry.
Their jewelry pieces express this duality, combining Latin American passion with German precision. They incorporate ancient forms and avant-garde elements, using only
Recycled precious metals to minimize environmental impact.
UNAMĒ celebrates the convergence of two distinct artistic worlds within Berlin’s dynamic backdrop. It represents a commitment to unity through diversity, innovation, and the continuous exploration of traditional jewelry design’s boundaries.
„My deep fascination with the creative process has always been a part of me, and this passion extends to the world of jewelry and design. I grew up in an environment that balanced the tranquility of the forest with the creativity of a workshop.
After a year that greatly inspired me, I embarked on an apprenticeship to become a goldsmith, aiming to master the intricate techniques behind the art of jewelry making. Alongside this, I pursued studies in product design and eventually earned a master's degree in interior design. These experiences provided me with a broader understanding of the creative process, emphasizing the fortune of being both a creator and designer in one.
Throughout my journey, my primary focus has consistently been on the art of handcrafting and bringing my unique ideas to life. Upon completing my master's degree, I returned to my roots, once again immersing myself in the world of precious materials and working within a workshop filled with wonder and an atmosphere of freedom.
The motto "be the change you want to see" resonates deeply within me, inspiring me to create jewelry and designs that reflect the positive changes I wish to bring to the world.”
„Born in the beautiful coastal city of Mar del Plata, Argentina.
Ever since I was a child, I found myself captivated by the world of architecture. Sketching buildings, studying their forms. Thus exploring the interplay of space, light, and materials became my passion. My goal is to create pieces that not only serve practical purposes but also touch the souls of those who experience them.
In addition to architecture and design, I have a profound curiosity about spirituality and the mysteries of existence. I've dedicated my life to exploring various spiritual traditions, seeking a deeper understanding of the human experience and the connection between the material and the beyond-physical.
My guiding philosophy is that life itself is the ultimate teacher. Every experience, whether simple or challenging, is an opportunity for personal growth. I see the world as my canvas, and each day as a chance to craft and refine the masterpiece of this very same existence.
As an artist, I infuse my unique perspective into everything I do, whether I'm designing a piece of jewelry, meditating in a serene sanctuary, or simply living my daily life. This journey is an ever-evolving masterpiece, shaped by my exploration of art, spirituality, and the canvas of life.“
