Something quite peculiar about the participants of the Jewelry Talent 2018 Contest is that the passion for jewelry began as a small pleasure/hobby. I assure you, they did not imagine at the time they would fall so much in love or feel so passionate about goldsmithing.
I agree it is never too late to start doing what you love and what you are passionate about. It happened many times that the true vocation of a person is discovered at a slightly advanced age, but that’s not bad.
To live doing what we love and what we like, that is life. That’s what it’s about, to seek happiness in the things that surround us.
Jewelry for me is an expression, it is fashion, it is a trend, it is joy and seduction, and the same goes for the creator of Evam Joies, our new participant of the contest.
The brand was born in 2001 in Sitges, a coastal town in the Spanish region of Catalonia, as a hobby, recycling basins from necklaces.
Her founder, Eva, discovered her passion after having a professional break where she dedicated herself to a wardrobe design course that took the unexplored creative light in her. Then, she did a Feng Shui course where she worked with the assembly of faceted balls, and there she began to give a personal and authentic touch with the beads of necklaces that she did not use.
After discovering her hidden talent, she continued making necklaces, and at that moment she discovered her vocation, her passion, what makes her happy.
“I inherited from my mother the passion for accessories, and from the beginning, we collaborated together in the choice of materials”.
Evam Joies is defined as a versatile and functional line that brings comfort, freshness, color, and femininity to women of all ages and styles.

Inspiration comes at the moment of the creative process. While Eva creates jewelry, new ideas, and possibilities emerge from the main pieces. Other versions with different touches. Also, her creations are based on the materials available at the time. She then questions: “What other materials can complement it?”.
“My favorite pieces are those that emerge when I let creativity flow, and as I go, I’m applying materials until I think the piece does not need anything else.”
Other times she makes personalized pieces for her clients, and as a dressmaker, she adapts to the tastes and needs of the consumer.
Among the materials used in her jewelry, she uses brass, zamak, sterling silver, wood and mineral pendants such as rose quartz, lapis lazuli, amethyst, agates, tiger’s eye and more. She also likes to combine pieces of glass, minerals, and silver. To hang she uses leather, silk, ribbons, suede, laces and the techniques vary depending on the result you want to achieve: single, multiple, crimped, macramé, knots, etc.
Crystals, minerals, silver, metals, and leather are the materials that are always present, and she occasionally incorporates tassels, silk, fringes, feathers, pearls or any other material without limiting the process of creation.
“I intend to convey the power that accessories have to transform a basic wardrobe background into a special and personal attire, and that jewelry empowers your femininity and personality”
Evolution is a pillar in the philosophy of her work, and she enjoys the creative freedom she gets giving materials life and personality. She has also made jewelry workshops teaching these techniques in Barcelona and Castelldefels.
Thank you, Eva, for making the world a lovelier place thanks to your beautiful jewelry.
