|Paula Giecco is the founder and owner of Finn – a name she chose to honor her great-grandmother, an Irish immigrant that moved to South America at the beginning of the twentieth century. Paula was born in Argentina and became a nomad herself, living for many years in NY, Sao Paulo and Sydney. After taking jewelry classes at the Fashion Institute of Technology – FIT and ateliers in Sao Paulo and Buenos Aires, her first steps were creating jewels from baquelite pieces an italian beads from the eighteen
||hundreds that she found at drift markets in Buenos Aires and Australia. Her intention of recovering the past and transforming it is still present in her current creations, where a historical perspective, charged with artistic references, coexists with a contemporary language. Her love for colorful plastics is also still present in her designs. which used acrylic resin as primary medium, worked in detail, as if it was a noble material or a precious stone, displayed in multiple layers, facets and
||intrincate cuttings and curves, generating volume and sculptural pieces. The appeal of Finn’s accessories doesn’t have to do with an expensive material but with a well thought-through and preciously executed design. Paula colaborates regularly with fashion brands. All pieces are manufactured and assembled in a small atelier in Buenos Aires.
