German-Ghanaian jewelry designer Julia Oduro-Boadi faced a common conundrum after graduation: what to do with her degree. After taking more courses, she discovered jewelry making which, according to her, combined many of the things she liked: art and design, creativity and handcraft. A few years after, Agudee was born.
Julia works mostly with silver and gold. As if more fun could be had than getting paid to make pretty things from precious metals, she also recently carried out a project, Las Letras, that involved inscribing ribbons of silver with clients’ thoughts or poems before curling them into the final jewelry pieces.
You can see more of her work by visiting her web site or her store in Barcelona.
