Born in RS, Sisters Lauren and Micherle have always dreamed of working together. The arts, music, classical ballet and manual work, such as the carpentry and sewing developed by her grandparents, have always been part of their lives.
Residing in Porto Alegre, Brazil, Micherle graduated in Architecture and Urbanism from UFRGS and began studies in goldsmithing at the Escola Gaúcha de Joalheria, finding in the craft the ideal medium to express his art in precious metals and gemstones.
Lauren, a graduate in Business Administration from the same university, after working at Garimpo, a traditional antiquarian in Porto Alegre, sees in the artisanal jewelry the beauty of perpetuating the work of the goldsmith and begins her apprenticeship with her sister in the Criativitá School of Jewellery.
This is how WEÌSS appears in the middle of 2014. The studio, based in Porto Alegre, produces handmade jewelry within the traditional techniques of goldsmithing.
