Announcement   I'M BACK! Everything is now back to normal ;) thank you all for your patience!

**PetiteFraise Handmade Jewelry is the meeting of different styles: boho, tribal, ethnic, gypsy, and then geometrical, linear, simple and sometimes minimal style mix together naturally and easily, giving birth to feminine pieces full of colors (of the wonderful gemstones and glass beads) and love. PetiteFraise jewelry is dedicated to wandering souls, for those traveller women, self confident and free spirited, who loves experimenting and daring colors and inusual shapes**


I'm Maria from Northern Italy, and I've been making jewelry since 2007. Now I'm working mainly with the metal smithing technique: I make jewelry with metals, in particular with brass. I cut the metal in the shape I need, I hammer and finish it. Besides hammers and the flame I often use many other tools. Then I assemble the final piece.
Everything is made with care and curiosity... my creations are dreamed and designed by me only: behind each piece there are passion, love, a big work of research and experimentation. Many of them are unique pieces.

About

Boho and feminine brass jewelry enlighten by stones and beads. Inspired by Earth, ancient cultures, Mother Nature and the Universe out there.

Hi there! I'm Maria, Italian girl, 28 y.o., living now in Milan, in Northern Italy.
I make jewelry with the metal smithing technique, working the brass by hand, and then I match it with gemstones and beads. My jewelry is is the meeting of different styles: boho, tribal, ethnic, gypsy, and then geometrical, linear, simple and sometimes minimal style mix together naturally and easily, giving birth to feminine pieces full of colors (of the wonderful gemstones and glass beads) and love. PetiteFraise Handmade is dedicated to wandering souls and free spirited women, who loves experimenting and daring colors and inusual shapes.
To learn more about all my collections, continue reading till the end! :)

---> MY LOVE FOR HANDMADE
I've always loved crafts and handmade, since I was a child, and I never stopped. My art teacher from my primary school taught us many techniques, such as cross stitching, glass decoration with glass paints, working with clay, and many others... and thanks to her I totally fell in love with crafting!
Growing up I went on crafting: I learned sewing cushions, and dresses for my dolls, I made bracelets with seed beads and then gave them as gifts to my friends, I made découpage, candles, I sewed ornaments with felt and fabrics... and so on!

---> WHERE EVERYTHING STARTED
Then, in 2007, during my first year at university, I got into polymer clay and I started selling my jewelry. At that time I made jewelry with miniature food and cute characters such as penguins.

---> MY JEWELRY & THE TECHNIQUES
Since then my style evolved a lot, and now here I am!
Now I work mainly with the metal smithing technique: I make jewelry with metals, in particular with brass. I cut the metal in the shape I need, I hammer, darken with fire and finished it. Besides hammers and the flame I often use many other tools. Then I assemble the final piece.

Everything is made with care and curiosity... my creations are dreamed and designed by me only: behind each piece there are passion, love, a big work of research and experimentation. Many of them are unique pieces.

---> THE COLLECTIONS you can find in my shop:

-"Spirit of Earth" collection: inspired by our wonderful Earth, by Mother Nature, by Universe and galaxies and the outer space, by ancient people and their culture. It's totally handmade with the metal smithing technique, working the metals with the flame and the hammers.

-"Moon paths" series, dedicated to the charming Moon.

-Seaside collection: inspired by the sea, the beach, sea creatures, exotic places on Earth.

-Minimal and geometric jewelry (coming soon!)
