Levens Jewels’ “raison d'être” is based in craftsmanship. Like a sheet of music written by hand or a drawing on a canvas, the jewels that make up each collection are elaborated with a clear artistic vocation. Inspiration is born from everyday life, from what never goes out of style by simply being part of the tradition that makes up the popular culture; the beauty of what is natural seen from an innovative and sophisticated point of view.
Drawing inspiration from the cinema, art and photography, ideas come to life at the hands of the Levens Jewels’ team. There are no mechanical intermediaries between the creators and their pieces; it is all part of the experimentation, of the singularity that comes from the imperfection of creating. It represents a clear commitment to an artisanal model ofproduction without losing sight of modern techniques.
Levens is more of a family than a business. The team is formed by Mar del Hoyo and her closest circle, creating and elaborating the jewels from her home studio on the outskirts of Barcelona.
Mar is a Spanish actress who, after a 15-year career, found a new way of materializing her creativity on a trip around Cote d’Azure (France). Upon returning home after this experience, she began to investigate the application of ceramics in jewellery. Sometime later and honouring Levens, the town where she made her first ceramic earrings and that somehow
changed the course of her life, Levens Jewels was born.
Levens has become a jewellery company that exports its pieces to many countries around the world, although its goal remains more personal than business.
