About the project

Mo Ghrian, a name that echoes through the soul, a handcrafted jewellery brand that breathes life into every piece, like a poet weaving words into a tapestry of emotion. Inspired by the beauty of Art Nouveau, the mysticism of Visionary Art, and the rhythm of Music, Mo Ghrian creates jewellery that tells a story, a story that is as unique as each individual that wears it.

Each piece created at Mo Ghrian is a work of art, items that embody the essence of the one-of-a-kind concept. Gold, silver, and precious coloured natural gemstones are the chosen mediums used to create these extraordinary pieces. With every brush stroke, every hammer strike, every stone setting, the artist pours their heart and soul into the creation, infusing it with meaning and depth.

The eagerness to learn new techniques and improve the design is ever-present at Mo Ghrian. The use of keum boo, a Korean technique that fuses gold leaf to silver, creates a stunning contrast that elevates the beauty of the piece. Oxidation, a technique that adds depth and texture to the metal, transforms the surface into an artistic canvas. Stone setting, a technique that requires precision and skill, adds the final touch to the piece, creating a connection between the gemstone and the metal.

Mo Ghrian jewels are a puzzle of techniques, a fusion of elements that come together to create something truly extraordinary. The result is jewellery that is not only beautiful but has a deep meaning and soul. Each piece tells a story, a story of love, of courage, of hope, and of dreams. Like a poem, each piece is crafted with care and attention to detail, creating a language of its own.

The values of Mo Ghrian go beyond the beauty of the piece, it is about valuing art and craftsmanship. Each piece is created with the intention of being unique, never to be replicated. It is a celebration of the individuality of each person, of their unique style and personality. It is a call to embrace one’s self and express themselves fearlessly.

In addition to valuing the art of jewellery making, we also believe in supporting small growers and textiles businesses of natural colour cotton communities from Northeast Brazil that are assisted by EMBRAPA ALGODÃO (The Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation) in Campina Grande – PB. We use handmade cloth bags specially made from Natural Coloured Cotton, a naturally pigmented fibre that grows in shades of green, brown, and beige. These cotton plants are hardy and naturally resistant to pests, eliminating the need for environmentally damaging pesticides and insecticides.

By supporting these small communities, we hope to contribute to a sustainable and fair trade system that benefits everyone involved. We believe that ethical and conscious practices are not just good for the environment, but also for the soul.

The idea behind the brand is that in the future Mo Ghrian can keep growing in quality and quantity of artists, sharing similar visions and opening space to new creations based in the core values of art, design and fine crafting.

My art is not just about jewellery, it is a celebration of life, of art, and of all that is meaningful. It is a reminder that beauty can be found in the smallest details, and that each person is unique and special in their own way. With every piece created, Mo Ghrian continues to inspire and uplift, weaving a tapestry of emotion that touches the soul and reminds us of the magic that surrounds us.

About the designer

A free soul jewellery designer and maker, now nestled amidst the verdant hills of Cork. I am Fabio, the creator and owner of Mo Ghrian – Jewellery Art.

My love for the rare and exquisite gems of the earth led me to the makers’ world. And in the year 2020, I embarked on a journey of self-discovery, studying under the tutelage of the masterful Luciana Preuss from Brazil and honing my craft at St. John’s College in Cork. It was a year and a half of learning, growing, and perfecting my art. Finally, I emerged, reborn as a jewellery designer, ready to unveil my unique creations to the world.

Mo Ghrian – Jewellery Art values the one-of-a-kind concept, and I pour my heart and soul into every piece I create. Sterling Silver, Gold and precious gems are my chosen mediums, and through them, I express my deepest thoughts and emotions. Art Nouveau, Visionary Art, and Music are my muses, forever inspiring me to push the limits of design and craftsmanship.
My pieces are as individual as the gems that adorn them. Each creation is born of the moment, never to be replicated. Through the beauty of handcrafted jewellery, I hope to inspire others to embrace their own unique style and express themselves fearlessly. Meanwhile, I’ll keep playing and evolving signing pieces as wearable poetry.
