The tale of Materia Rica originated in London when Marta & Joan met in the city and immediately realised that they were destined to launch many projects together. The union of Marta’s artistic creativity and Joan’s ingenuity gave birth to their mission: showcasing their most artistic side through jewellery and accessories.
They later relocated to the Gràcia district of Barcelona where they established their studio and showroom, and began to collaborate with international artists such as Gemma Bordes, Miriam Frank, Lisa Junius, Asis Percales and Casita de Wendy, among others.
With a focus on sustainability, the designs created at Materia Rica use FSC-certified wood sourced from local suppliers, embracing the values of traditional craftsmanship. Each necklace and earring created in the studio is dyed and finished completely by hand with antiallergic and nickel free fixings. The packaging is 100% recyclable and respectful to the environment.
