About OFILD'O Jewellery
In the tradition of the French artistic heritage, Aliza Barre, the founder of OFILD’O, is a cultural traveller.
“I see life as a journey of discovery and the world is a vast magnificent garden,” says Aliza. “In this garden are rarities to be found, and wonders may be cultivated.”
OFILD’O is inspired by an allegory, that of a river.
As a river, it is born free and does not know any border.
As a river, it meanders through the lands it crosses, becoming part of them, taking their shapes and colors, enriching them and itself at the same time.
OFILD’O reflects this spirit and find its inspiration meeting people from different ways of life, countries and cultures.
OFILD’O collections are inspired by artists who interpret jewellery from their own unique perspectives. Each piece is born from an authentic inspiration.
The first collection, “Au Soleil Levant”, was created by Yoshihiko Miyake.
Aliza met him during one of her journeys in Japan. She recognized in him the heart of a true artist, proud of his heritage, open to new ideas and also passionate to learn about other cultures.
Challenged to create jewellery, something he had never done, Yoshihiko decided to interpret one of his most cherished childhood memories. He was recalling his plays on a riverbank, the delight in smells, colours and flow, the stillness of nature and his own unity with it.
Instead of drawing his designs, he created amazingly filigree fine, elegant origami sculptures, all of which became beautiful 3D jewellery designs.

OFILD’O takes pride in discovering true artists such as Yoshihiko Miyake and to give them a chance to express their art and make a name for themselves.
