Waste becomes precious

Vivereapiedinudi is a
project of recovery of materials from construction sites and beyond, which I transform with precious papers, glass and stones creating bijoux and unique objects that tell of the beauty and traditions of the peoples of the world. Vivereapiedinudi speaks of respect for Nature through respect for the materials it gives us.
My motto is "junk can be a jewel", because in my workshop waste becomes precious!

    Owner, Maker

    Hi, I'm Laura Anna, a biologist who lives in the hills of the province of Parma in Italy.
    Creativity and love for Nature have always been my daily bread as the attitude to observe and rejoice in the beauty of small things.

Welcome to my shop!
I am a biologist and my love for Nature that operates as an artist in every form of life is reflected in my creations. Living Barefoot is the desire to feel the contact with Nature through the recovery of the materials it offers and appreciating the perfection that is hidden in small things. This is why I love to transform what in the eyes of many is a waste into something precious and unique, to give it back a life and a personality.

I use various natural materials: wood waste from construction sites or made from pallets, paper, copper fittings and hydraulic pipes, small hardware parts, vintage buttons and much more. Work and decoration all entirely by hand, paying the utmost care and attention. I love experimenting by associating different materials and mixing colors in personal shades. I put a part of myself into everything I create.
I love an object when it has a story to tell, so often in my creations I highlight some characteristics that demonstrate its origin and maintain its identity, a texture or a small defect that make it personal and unique.

Before making a purchase please read the rules carefully and for any doubt or question feel free to contact me.
