About Larissa Moraes : I grew up in colorful household filled with art history books, canvases and brushes. Being the daughter of a struggling artist, I sought refuge in the pursuit of a stable career in law. After studying law, I started working as a legal aide in Brazil´s Senate and the federal government in Brasilia, Brazil´s capital. After years of exposure to heavy state bureaucracy, I realized that my heart was not where my work was and strived to find other employment opportunities where I could satisfy my creative desires. A friend of mine introduced me to the jewelry world and it was love at first sight. I initially started drawing and designing after I would return home from work… Shortly after those designs became my first few pieces… and now it has become a fulltime labor of love. I began designing fulltime towards the end of 2018. In early 2019 I started working on my “dream collection” and finally found the courage to post some of my works on Instagram. These posts changed my life. Shortly after, I received invites to participate in several jewelry exhibits after which I decided to show my collection at the Brazil Jewelry Week in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The feedback I received was so positive that it only reinforced my decision to design fulltime. That was when Larissa Moraes Jewelry was born! Courage breeds courage! I decided to participate in the A' Design Award and Competition in February 2020 and won gold prize! The sensation I felt in knowing that people could truly appreciate the love that I poured into my work was unmeasurable. I could finally say, “My work is my love, my love is my work”
STATEMENT OF ART:
Especially in this new world, art has the power to give comfort, hope and beauty. Life without art and love makes no sense. My purpose is to build a solid career, deserve to be part of this group and, finally, live from art and affection.

ORGANIZATION:

EDUCATION:

EXPERIENCE:
At the end of 2018, I found happiness in art and began to design the jewelry collection of my dreams. In early 2019, I manufactured some pieces from the collection and posted the images on Instagram. In a few days after that, my life changed! I was invited to participate in five design and jewelry fairs and the publication of the contemporary Brazilian jewelry book of 2019. I participated in the 1st jewelry fair in South America, in São Paulo.

Satisfied and driven by the excellent receptivity of my first collection, I abandoned the legal career and embraced the project that gives me joys the most. Producing jewelry is like living a dream! I've never been happier and whole! It's that energy, asleep for so many years that I put in my job.
