tingling senses


my name is joana pedroso and i am the designer and maker behind Trincar Uvas. after 12 years living in the Netherlands plus 1 year of travelling I have returned to my home country Portugal. i feel the happiest amongst nature, art and friends.

trincar uvas is where i get to express myself. my aesthetics. what makes my senses tingle. what excites me and at the same time makes me feel like i'm home.

i am deeply inspired by tribal and folk arts & crafts. i love it’s raw and pure strength! in making and designing i use simple and ancient materials and techniques that have been with us for many centuries. most of my pieces are one of a kind or made in a run of very small editions. i like to keep my creativity flowing!

i am responsible for every single step of this endeavor. i design and make each piece, i photograph all of it, i make my own business cards and packaging and i take each parcel to the post office myself... and i love all of it!

if you are interested in knowing a bit more about me, my inspiration, creative process and peeks into my studio you can follow me on


i also have a little blog (a bit abandoned at times) you can find it at

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Take good care of new piece so it will last you a lifetime (and hopefully pass it down through generations). Always store away your piece in its original cotton bag. Stay away from moisture and dust, the worse enemies of brass.

Over time brass will tarnish naturally gaining a matte darker patina. I seal all my items with a protective wax, to best preserve it gently polish it after each use.

If your jewelry has lost its original shine and you want it back, try using vinegar, lemon juice or ketchup, rinse it with warm water and dry it completely before storing it away. Use chemical agents as last resource!

For the cotton pieces I suggest the same care when it comes to storage. For cleaning use a damp cloth to remove dust and minor stains.

Custom and personalised orders

I accept custom orders and I really love it! Feel free to ask :)

Gift wrapping and packaging

All items come beautifully gift wrapped. In the future I hope to offer customization in the wrapping as well.

Most of my packaging is plastic free or recycled. Trying my best to reduce the negative environmental impact of this business.
