Blanca Monros Gomez

Blanca Monros Gomez

Posted 13/08/2012 August 2012
Originally hailing from Barcelona, Blanca Monrós Gómez’s love of jewellery started at the tender age of seven when, inspired by a visit to her electrician grandfather’s workshop, she started to make necklaces from pieces of scrap and fishing line. Following studies in Industrial Design at art college in Boston, Gómez was to return to jewellery making once more and having settled in the creative hub that is New York’s Brooklyn, launched her eponymous collection.
Originally hailing from Barcelona, Blanca Monrós Gómez’s love of jewellery started at the tender age of seven when, inspired by a visit to her electrician grandfather’s workshop, she started to make necklaces from pieces of scrap and fishing line. Following studies in Industrial Design at art college in Boston, Gómez was to return to jewellery making once more and having settled in the creative hub that is New York’s Brooklyn, launched her eponymous collection.

Her deceptively simple designs are a masterclass in discreet understatement which Gómez attributes to her industrial design background. “Studying industrial design helped me realize that so many products are designed and made for the short term. And I knew I didn’t want to do that. I want to create pieces of jewellery that last – something that can be passed down to daughters and nieces. I always try to design pieces that are simple and interesting enough that you can wear every day.”

Blanca Monrós Gómez is exclusive to Couverture in Europe.
