Brother and sister duo Jordi and Maite were nurtured by the
Catalonian culture - one that marches to the beat of its own drum,
separate from the other provinces of Spain. So when it came time to
continue working in their family's shop selling traditional
jewelry, it was no surprise that their dissenting nature would
inspire them to create a path that would be all their own.
"Everything starts like a dream inside of me. Something that is
difficult for me to describe with words. Colors, innovative
textures, and unexpected shapes come alive in every piece of
jewelry we create," says Maite.
Another industry that often bridges the gap between dream and
reality is fashion, and it's one which they love. Inspired by the
fast pace and evolution of trends, they seek the same constant
change in their designs. But despite the ongoing transition between
seasons, the same rebellious spirit that started AS&AS stays
It's one thing to render a piece of abstract jewelry using a
paper and pencil, but actually creating something tangible requires
a whole new arsenal of tools. Thanks to Jordi's technical
fascination and constant desire to find innovative techniques, the
team takes design to new heights.
For example, to create the psychedelic pieces that appear in the
Sunspot and Majorica
Magic collections, a pattern is printed on silver and fused
onto the pieces with extremely high temperatures. This creates a
modern kind of enamel that is fade-resistant and stays vibrantly
colored. And in the Duette collection,
the AS&AS team infuses pure white quartz with a rich dye that
creates a flawlessly colored stone.
Silver is the spice of the company's life, and its used in
nearly every piece of jewelry created. But because of AS&AS'
knack for reinvention, it never becomes repetitive. The designers
keep the material fresh by using a combination of urban lifestyle,
nature, and surrealist art as blueprints. The pieces are then
carved, polished and created in a range of different materials,
making each piece a work of art.
We admire the work and personality of Spanish artists such as
the architect Antoni Gaudí, and the surrealist artist
Salvador Dalí. They are the ultimate leaders of modernity and
vanguardism, because they were ahead of their time. Their
innovative and extravagant designs marked a milestone in history.
For AS&AS, they are an example to follow.

A Jewelista is a person who appreciates and values a jewel for
what it is: A work of art. Jewelry should be an extension of the
personality of the woman who wears it. A Jewelista knows and
therefore seeks the jewels that suit her own personality. Everyone
has a Jewelista within them.
Like the pair of designers behind AS&AS, the Duette
collection embraces the creative forces of two. Although the
collection is inspired by nature and the energy its elements exude,
the actual creation process involves high-tech innovation. By dying
natural white quartz stones, these "duets" result in flawless
colors. They also create a powerful impact as they are set against
organically shaped silver with contrasting rose and 18-karat yellow
gold plated silver.
Inspired by both the islands around Barcelona and the cool-hued
mosaics found in Parque Güell, AS&AS creates one magical
collection. The designer duo use high-tech processes to blur the
lines between art and innovation as each silver creation is
digitally printed with a vivid pattern which is then permanently
melted on, under high pressure. That means each fade-resistant
design will forever recall the exciting mix of island escape and
Dynamic shapes that swept the art and cultural world of
Barcelona, Spain are brought to the alluring world of jewelry by
the avant-garde designers of AS&AS. Each curving shape brings
an exciting look as light reflects off each side and adds a boost
of radiance. The entire collection shines in polished silver
accentuated with multi-colored cultured pearls that cast additional
This collection is modeled after the most impactful star in the
solar system: The Sun. To replicate its smoldering colors, the
design duo behind AS&AS look to surrealist art and advanced
technology and create a look that's hard to resist gazing at. While
the intense colors are impressive in their own right, the permanent
fusion of the digital print to precious metal is just as amazing.
This high-impact collection is meant to inspire passion in your
Much like fashion revolutionaries Coco Chanel and Yves Saint
Laurent, the designers behind AS&AS look to menswear to
reinvent the most feminine accessories. Using ebony and ivory
tones, the Barcelona-based jewelers translate the layers of a man's
tuxedo jacket into glamorous jewelry design that incorporates shiny
silver, black onyx, white agate, and glimmering cubic zirconia. The
tiers of materials emerge from one another creating a style that's
suitable for any ritzy occasion.
