I was lucky to meet Fernando in Tucson this year and enjoyed talking to him. He showed me this wonderful book and I saw that he is very passionate about the jewelry he designs, beautiful products and teaching others how to make jewelry. He’s deeply inspired by Brazil, the culture, fashion and art. You can see the passion in everything he does!
