ENRIC MAJORAL. THE EXPANDED JEWELLERY
“Craftsmanship is not just about working with your hands, but with your hands, intelligence, technique and heart”
TWhen the name of Enric Majoral is mentioned, one immediately thinks of Formentera. The jeweller’s close relationship with the island is inseparable and we would venture to say that these days, one cannot be explained without the other.
Removed from the styles and trends of the day, Majoral created freely in Formentera, from the inspiration that the island offered him, immersed, as we said, in his luminous energy and a virgin culture, still anchored at the time in a past that was no longer know to the urban world from which he came and where the new sociocultural trends resulting from May 1968 took hold.
This freedom has led him to experiment with everything he considers suggestive: colour, materials taken from land and sea, new materials…forging his own universe linked with other new creative paths of different origin, but with a common nexus, experimentation and lack of limits, beyond the stereotypes that until the reigned in the world of jewellery.
Between 1992 and 1997 he stablished his work recognized with several awards, opened hi workshops-shops in Formentera and Barcelona, a way of bringing the public closer to jewellery.
In Autumn 2022 the Design Hub of Barcelona hosted the exhibition “Enric Majoral. The Expanded Jewellery” .
The show, organized by the Design Museum with the collaboration of FAD and curated by Maia Creus aimed to highlight the creative journey of Enric Majoral jeweler.
