As the youngest daughter of Pablo Picasso and his paramour Francoise Gilot, Paloma Picasso grew up in France surrounded by artists and their beautiful creations. It’s no wonder that the Spanish-French designer has devoted her career to creating beautiful objects, most famously her exquisite collection of jewelry for Tiffany & Co. . Picasso’s designs are known for bold lines and a strong use of color, a talent that she undoubtedly inherited from her famous father.
Her X’s and O’s were among her early designs and are still in the line today. The gold kiss pendant is a continuation of the bold strokes and clean lines of the originals. Her use of color is bold and fearless, much the way her father approached his art.
Over her adult years, Paloma worked as a costume designer in Paris and was the principal designer for Greek jeweler Zolotas before joining Tiffany & Co. This year she celebrates her 30th anniversary of designing for Tiffany this year, and continues to produce captivating, bold pieces with her signature aesthetic. Paloma’s designs are modern and sensually simple, organic at times, and full of wonderful color combinations. She has an uncanny ability to create pieces that were new designs 30 years ago and still look modern today.
Paloma means dove in Spanish. Pablo Picasso’s line drawing of a dove symbol for the International Peace Congress in Paris is 1949 after World War II, has become a universal symbol of peace.A Blue Dove Drawn by Pablo Picasso – the dove has become a universal symbol of peace
