Objects D' Art: Joanique

In the Catholic world, Easter is a day of celebration. In the Philippines, practicing Catholics flock to hear mass or go to early morning procession called salubong ( a procession depicting the first meeting of Jesus with Mother Mary after His death is still practiced in the provinces) to commemorate the resurrection of Christ. A day where all family members are gathered to feast and have fun( nearly as festive as Christmas but without the gifts though).  From beach to day trips(picnics) or simply visiting grandparents, it's an important time for traditional families to partake in the end of Lenten season.  

In relation to celebrations, Objects D' Art is an exciting gathering of prominent Filipino artists to happen next weekend.  The third artist of the Style Narratives series is Joanique by Malou Romero. In my previous entries the author featured this young, upcoming artist as one of the new breed of aspiring jewelry designers in the country.  Joanique is a line of fine jewelry in bold designs made from both precious and semi precious stones.  Brave and fearless, these eye-catching stunners are all about making a statement.

Joanique's latest collection Pierra (meaning stone in French)is a majestic creative execution using a range of different colored stones.Sourced from all over the world, the mesmerizing cuts, clarity and tones are brilliantly pieced with designs marked with distinction. Fine detailing in vintage and art-like incantations form enchanting pieces beyond the so called ordinary.  The uniqueness of style is magically placed in alluring luxe settings thus creating fascinating objects of delight.  An investment of the times, Joanique is for the modern woman in the 21st century who's all about substance, confidence and style.
