About Wara Designer
WARA DESIGNS is a contemporary jewellery line, designed & handmade by a French silversmith - Caroline Daoulas - in her studio in Saigon, Vietnam. It is a travel through time and space, picking its inspiration through ancient and modern cultures, finding its textures and colours from patterns found in nature. Originally from France, Caroline has been exploring the world while living in Europe, Asia and South America. Her dream to train as a silversmith became a reality when she was living in Peru. As a tribute, she chose WARA DESIGNS as her brand name - Wara Wara meaning ‘stars’ in Aymara (an ancestral language still spoken in part of The Andes).
Taking this gift with her, and moving across the world to Vietnam, she established herself as a jewellery designer and maker, nourished by the inspiring surrounding culture and energy.
WARA DESIGNS’ authentic style results directly from Caroline´s lifestyle and her love for the art of making. Craftsmanship is the benchmark for quality and unique jewellery. Every piece of the collection is handmade one piece at a time by Caroline.
“My aim is to be authentic whether in the designs or in the craftsmanship. I believe creating products that are irreplaceable is the positive answer to a disposable world.” It encourages a more sustainable model environmentally, economically and socially while keeping the art of craftsmanship alive.

About Wara Designs
WARA DESIGNS celebrates contemporary design, historic techniques and raw materials. Fusing modern and timeless, bold and dainty, simple and original, the inspiration and creativity of WARA DESIGNS result directly from Caroline´s lifestyle and her love for the art of making.
The infinite possibilities of shapes, textures and reactions of metal are her playground. Her designs reflect, in clean geometric lines, her fascination for the heritage of metal jewellery in civilizations across the world and through time.
Caroline follows the instinct that there is a universal essence deriving from ancient cultures across the world and through time. Her designs are often an attempt to capture this feeling and interpret it in a contemporary way with clean line and a minimalist approach.
Wearability, practicality and comfort also lend a strong emphasis to the designs. Beauty isn t pain. A piece of jewellery is like an extension of the body that reveals a glimpse of the wearer’s personality.
