At Lebrusan Studio, we are champions of exquisite craftsmanship; the intangible cultural heritage that is time-honoured tools and techniques, knowledge and skills passed from one generation down to the next.
For many years, lace-like filigree was Lebrusan Studio's signature accent and a homage to our Creative Director's Spanish roots. These iconic filigree rings, earrings, bangles and necklaces are the creations of Lorenzo, a master artisan based in a small family-run workshop on Via de la Plata, an ancient commercial pilgrimage path crossing the west of Spain from north to south.
Working right into his eighties, Lorenzo retired in 2022. Synonymous with Lebrusan Studio, his work was incredibly nuanced and distinctive, his touch deft and his attention to detail razor-sharp. To replace him feels, for now, impossible.
With no plans to manufacture any new filigree jewellery for the foreseeable future, we would instead like to celebrate the masterpieces of the past; to continue telling their stories and keeping Lorenzo's flame lit.
Beanie came to us with a vision of bridal earrings that bridged the gap between delicate and striking. Her wedding dress was cleverly designed to be worn three ways - from the church to the drinks reception and the dancefloor at the end of the day. Keen to pay homage to its delicate lace fabric and dusky pink sequinned belt, Beanie left the rest in the capable hands of Arabel.
The end result? A pair of statement face-framers, hand-crafted by Lorenzo in recycled rose gold. Set with rose quartz and champagne sapphires they ooze femininity and effortlessly carry the baton from the aisle all to the party.
The most exciting jewellery is that which rethinks the margins. This chunky band is an engagement ring and wedding ring combined, enabling Amy to say all she needs to say via the medium of one striking jewel. Merging recycled white and yellow gold, a plethora of small conflict-free diamonds and Lorenzo's signature filigree lacework, this ornate creation is just as much a visual spectacle as an intimate symbol of lifelong commitment.
The work of our Creative Director, Arabel, walks a tightrope between art and jewellery design, her unique pieces merging new narratives with traditional craft. Conceptual by nature, these creations combine celebrations of history and folklore with modern-day pop culture, serving as social commentaries and telling the stories of now. Combining the contemporary thrill of coloured Swarovski crystals with the ancient art of filigree, Lorenzo brought Arabel's wildest to life with this sculpture-cum-cuff bangle.
