"My work is always about the power of aesthetics and how it can inspire us.
Everything I design has to take my breath away."

Born in Australia, Visnja Brdar, has lived and worked in Melbourne, Paris, London, Milan and Rome. She moved to New York in 1999 after being invited to work with Fabien Baron. During her career as a Creative Director and Graphic Designer, Visnja Brdar developed an acute sensibility for the symbolic and tactile effects that an image can create in one's heart and mind. Her talent and fierce aesthetic vision led her to collaborate with the industry's leading influencers, among them: Richard Avedon, Marc Newson, Michael Kors, Giorgio Armani, Jil Sander and Peter Zumthor.

"It all happened on Place Vendome."

Inspired by her experiences and emboldened by what she saw as a need for a new creative philosophy Visnja Brdar set the stage for a new approach to jewelry design – "Extravagant Minimalism", jewelry that would be more than just decorative, jewelry that would embody qualities of the human spirit, jewelry that has the power to empower.

"I create my jewelry to invite the energy I need."

Visnja Jewels gives form to universal and inspirational values: Love, Courage, Freedom, Power and Faith. Characterized by simple, minimal designs rendered in bold and unexpected ways, each piece cultivates beauty as a path to spirituality through simplicity and form. Powerful, luxurious and complex, Visnja Jewels transcend the classic notion of jewelry while possessing the very qualities one would expect from a master jeweler. Visnja Jewels is handmade in New York by expert craftsmen. Diamonds are meticulously set in precious metals, illuminating a rigorous design – deceptively simple, yet exceedingly complex. Each piece is signed and numbered. The jewelry cases, designed by Visnja are art objects in their own right. Like the jewelry, they are quickly becoming a collector's item.
