About

The Price Of Freedom

You would never expect that a researcher can start creating handmade jewelry. But it can happen ... it happened to me, Valentina Rivelli, the creator of Wearable Wood, a collection of bracelets, pendants , necklaces and rings crafted out of raw wood.

Sometimes life is strange, it leads you to do things that you would never have imagined to do. I fell in love with painting after being dragged to a workshop while working as a researcher in the Netherlands. So I started to paint self-taught , with no rules or instruments, using my hands instead of brushes, knives, sponges , and anything else I could find at home. Painting has helped me to discover and to explore aspects of my creativity that were unknown to me. It was like a therapy, which led me to clarify things that I wasn't able to express in words.
From here, I started experimenting with different techniques and materials until, one day, I came across some items of raw wood. I was immediately struck , I started to play with it, to create geometries and color combinations, giving life to the collection Wearable Wood.

All Wearable Wood pieces are characterized by modules that repeats and transforms, which vary in shapes and colors, while remaining true to themselves. They are original, elegant and suitable to be worn in any occasion, from the most casual to the most formal. These jewels represent me, they reflect my energy in every inch.

Leave The Netherlands and the research meant leaving a guaranteed work and a good salary. I think that was the price for my freedom.

Care instructions

SILVER PIECES
Wash with warm, soapy water. Avoid harsh detergents. Never clean ultrasonically. Never steam clean.

Please note that black patination is a superficial lavoration, so the black patina will fade with time and can go away completely, when it happens remember that is it always possible to patinate again.

WOOD PIECES
All the pendants are hand-painted with acrylic colors and then varnished to preserve them from water and scratches.
It's ok if you walk in the rain, but please take it off before going for a swim in the sea ;)
Please try to keep it away from solvents like nail varnish remover.
