Orii Design is a jewellery brand founded by Stephanie Geracitano. Stephanie was born and raised in Canada. She currently lives between the mountains and sea in Vancouver, British Columbia. Each piece of jewelry is designed and handmade by Stephanie, in her studio. She uses her industrial design and sculpture background to create these wearable works of art in silver, gold and stone.
Her work illuminates the beauty found in simplicity and is very sculptural with a strong emphasis on form and structure. The jewelry is basic enough to wear everyday with any outfit, but is still unique enough in form to really stand out. Simple and subtle, yet sophisticated and distinct. She values quality and her pieces are made to be long lasting.
Stephanie is enamoured by her natural environment and the emotion it evokes. Many of her pieces use sculptural elements found in nature, mainly from geological formations such as glaciers, caves, canyons or waves. These elements are mixed with a contemporary architectural aesthetic. The dynamic forms suggest movement and transformative aspects of nature, such as the ever changing landscapes sculpted by the power of wind, water and sun. The fluidity of the dynamic forms also entice the viewer to explore all angles of a piece moving the eye across the piece. Orii design aims to inspire each person to express their uniqueness, individuality and their light.
