I met Florencia a few months ago and she told me about her lovely label “Iamflo“. After a lot of email exchanging and conversations over the phone, we both agreed on having a Giveaway sponsored by Iamflo.
This time we are giving away a set of Stainless Steel earrings meticulously handcrafted by Flo and Brett.

If you’d like to know what’s behind the history of this amazing brand, read this great review written by Florencia Martinez, co-founder of Iamflo.
“Iamflo started out in 2008 producing bespoke silver pieces in Buenos Aires, my hometown. I used to work with precious metals such as gold and silver to create custom pieces for gals and galleries. The jewellery was very conceptual, intricate, unique and beautiful, but difficult to sell at the price that such pieces require.
After travelling the world, I landed in Sydney were I met Brett, my husband.
Many long nights and cups of tea later (+ the support of my husband), we decided to combine our industrial design background and the years of professional experience in this field, with my silver smithing skills. At the end of 2011 these two long-lost allies finally came together in what is now iamflo.
Iamflo is all about our passion for nature, colour, hand-made and industrial processes.
We like to design unique and playful jewellery pieces that provoke a smile. We work with well-considered, high-quality materials. Our silver contains 100% recycled content and our stainless steel is designed to last. Our pieces are locally made – just the way we like it!
We like to explore and work with bright colours. We are passionate about colour and we love the way the colour radiates off the stainless steel. The painting process is fascinating and it is done in our studio south of Sydney.
Our travels, the sea and the built environment were always our number one source of inspiration. Having our studio close to the sea and in the forest brings us daily motivation to continue to grow iamflo.
As with all creative ventures this business will take time to development and sometimes it can be tricky, with lots of decisions to make, but we are very proud that iamflo it is a true representation of who we are and it brings us a new learning every day!”
