When Candela Turco set out to create her own line of precious jewelry, she made a commitment to one simple philosophy –to create “l’art pour l’art”, art for art’s sake. A true standout in the world of luxury design, Pasionae is Turco’s creative expression of what passion, the irrational exaltation of the soul, has meant throughout the ages.
The Argentina native has proved her talent for design throughout her extensive schooling and career experience, graduating the Fashion Institute of Technology with honors, then following working for some of the biggest labels in fashion, including Oscar de la Renta, Ralph Lauren, DKNY, Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger. Her collaborations helped her to build notoriety in the industry, but her incredible jewelry has always spoke for itself and shined above the rest.
Pasionae’s jewelry focuses on striking the perfect harmony between unique uses of color, texture, and shape. The pieces feature semi-precious stones, emeralds, colored glass, silver, even wood, and are shaped into dramatic, bold silhouettes. Just as every person’s passion is unique to them, no two Pasionae pieces are the same –each is made by hand using some of the world’s most incredible natural resources. runway2street is honored to have a true artist on board our team of international designers.
