Our Story


Andrea Barrail Art Jewelry was born from the thought that Paraguayan culture

was being overlooked. With the idea of showing the world different aspects of

Paraguayan traditions through art, Andrea created the first collection based on

indigenous wooden tattoos fused with contemporary art. The whole concept of

the brand is to create consciousness of art in third world countries.

Jewelry is not a major industry in Paraguay, 

yet the designer found a “pot of gold” while working

with the artisans. “Their talent is impeccable and a secret

to most people since no one gives them the acknowledgment

they deserve. My goal is to make Paraguay a well known

location for jewelry art in the world”- says the designer.

Her art is divided into collections with different meanings.

The first collection, Ambüe, is about change. Her inspiration came at a difficult time for her

where, like in many people’s lives, she was going through a great deal of change and growth.

The word “Ambüe” means “to be transformed” in her home town’s indigenous language, Guarani.

She chose the butterfly as her main design because the butterfly is a perfect example of how

major change can signify unexpected beauty.

Two important factors of inspiration for her were,

her father’s modern designs, and the traditional tattoos

found in Guarani indigenous art. She found a way to fuse

both aspects and create the sculpture pieces she has

presented all over the world.

Currently Andrea is in the midst of creating her fourth collection.
