“El hombre de las perlas” – the man of the pearls, this is how I would describe the designer and founder of the jewelry brand Two S, Samer Santiago.
The man of the pearls – Samer Santiago
A few months ago, I met the designer of Two S at the “ Inderum” showroom event in Barcelona as you can read in my previous post.
Later, I had a chance to visit him in his studio in Barcelona and talk to him a little bit more about his work. In his office he introduced me to the world of pearls and showed me his new designs and projects he is currently working on.

This time we had a little bit more time to talk about his work and I got some interesting facts about the creator behind the brand Two S.
Before Samer started creating and selling his own jewelry designs, he worked for several years in different countries, such as Spain, Switzerland and Australia, offering exclusive pearls to his demanding customers. Having enjoyed enormous success in these kinds of fields, he still did not feel satisfied with his work, so in 2010 he decided to go one step further and start his own business with his exclusive jewelry brand Two S.
The designer gets his inspiration from the architecture of famous buildings and represents it in his creations. Every single piece of his jewelry collection is handmade and therefore unique. Some of the pieces are made by him personally.
In his office he showed me the raw materials that he is using for his new jewelry collection. They are made using only natural materials like tropical wood, pearls and diamonds. For the first time in my life I had more than a handful of real pearls around my neck valued at thousands of Euros. I have to admit that it was a nice feeling having the cold pearls on my skin. He also explained to me the quality differences between the pearls and their value. Depending on the purity of the pearls the prices can vary from 30 – 600 Euros for one single pearl.
