Before becoming a successful jewelry and accessories designer, Ken Samudio was a working as a biologist, specializing in marine biodiversity. Samudio explores the natural and organic forms found in nature, mimicking distinct textures by using various materials. He creates artworks from up-cycled beads made from plastic water bottles, recycled sea glass and other sustainable materials indigenous to his home country. Based in the Philippines, Ken Samudio employs mostly disadvantaged women in his small production house, transforming them into a strong work force of skilled artisans working behind the label. Since the founding of his brand, Samudio has seen much success; his greatest achievement was being selected out of hundreds to launch his collection at the VOGUE TALENTS CORNER 2015 at Piazza Morando in the posh via Montenapoleone district in Milan, where only 12 selected designers from around the world were chosen to show their collection.
