Geometrical lattice structures, often seamlessly intertwined, are the trademark of many pieces of jewelry created by Ferran Iglesias. Featuring a rhythmic alternation between the inside and the outside, these spatial compositions are characterized by an airy, light-flooded sculptural three-dimensionality. But the creative spectrum of this Catalan jewelry designer also includes rings which present themselves as veritable miniature objects and display references to architecture. One of his most important sources of inspiration is nature, for example the sea, coral and plants, but he is also inspired by many of the things that surround him, says Iglesias and adds: “Of course, I was also influenced by Catalan modernism.” In principle, he attaches great importance to regarding pieces of jewelry both as objects and as sculptures, and he always makes sure that high-precision craftsmanship is part of the creative process.
