From a table to a lab in the center of Florence (Italy)

In 2015 I finally had the courage to roll up my sleeves and do what I've been dreaming of for a long time: I started my own jewelery production! I colonized the unused rumpus room of the house, with its large wooden table that has become "my laboratory", I gathered all the tools I could need scattered and dusty in the garage (pincers, hacksaws, sandpaper, glues), I passed hours of surfing the internet and looking for the small findings that I liked most, and like a child in front of a candy shop, I was full of joy when I finally received my first supplier order at home! The same day I started working, and I literally never stopped. Almost seven days a week, from morning to evening, I take care of the shop entirely and personally: from design, to production, to photos, to the Etsy shop and online promotion. In the early years I concentrated myself on the use of recycled materials that could give me great freedom of expression (papier-mâché, driftwood, metal wire); as my studies in the goldsmith and ceramic fields and my experiences in various artisanal laboratories progressed, I have included in my production other materials, such as polymer clay, resin and silver, always preferring organic and imperfect shapes.
Originality, color, curiosity, mix of materials are the characteristics that distinguish me.
In 2019 I opened my shop / laboratory in the Santo Spirito district in Florence, Italy :-)

Welcome to my shop!
I am a 30 y.o girl from Venezia, Italy and I love art in all its forms; I graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna in Ornament course of study, with a thesis on contemporary jewelery; I twisted in my education period my two greatest passions, art and travel; I studied in Madrid, worked in design workshops of contemporary ceramics in Berlin and Bologna, but was in Seville, in 2013, that in a small company of contemporary ceramic jewelry, I realized what I wanted to do in life. In the summer of 2015 I begin my own jewelry production: the materials that immediately I chose were papier mache, driftwood and silver. I love the ethical unusual use of materials: papier mache, worked to look like ceramic, and wood pieces worked by the sea, which creates incredible miniatural sculptures..I love contrasts, and so I added silver to these organic materials and shapes, mainly used in wire, with its sharp and clean profiles.
I want my jewels to express irony, divertissement, joy; my jewels are ironic, naive, colorful or essential, but for sure original and recognizable.

The papier-mâché is treated with a glossy, transparent finish enamel, which makes it resistant, waterproof and rigid.
