About

I am an Italian expatriate wife that has lived and worked abroad for the past 17 years. I have had a home in Melbourne, Hayman Island, Doha, Dubai, Damascus, Sardinia, Bangkok and at present I live in Morocco. I often return to my home base in Italy though and my creations may be shipped from Italy or Morocco due to my travel.
I have had a passion for ceramic and pottery for the past 20 years but for most of this time I have always made hardware and crockery and never thought of creating  pure decorative items or accessories since I had this set idea in my mind that these types of  earthy material can only be used to make beautiful vases,and plates.

However, three years ago,before my husband and I relocated to Syria, where I knew I wouldn't be allowed to work, I  thought I had to bring with me something to keep me busy so I started making some raku beads of all shapes and sizes.Women from all walks of life would stop me to  ask  about these precious pieces I had created and that I so loved to wear.These admirative reactions made me realize  that I should explore this alley a little further. My passion for jewelry exploded and since then, this “hobby” became a significant journey inside myself, a means to explore my inner boundaries.
I am still making mugs and plates and little vases but everything comes out to be much more interesting than before.
I hand craft all my beads to create one of a kind piece of jewelry, earthly sophisticated, colorful, delicate, essential.
I found the perfect laboratory that inspires me in the Italian country side close to our permanent home so I travel back and forth spending few months here and other there.The majority of the time I live in Morocco though. I ship both from Morocco and from Italy according to where I stay.
