My day in law liked this necklace. She is a designer herself!


Let your uniqueness be inspired

“quasi caramelle” is a project I started in 2010.
All quasi caramelle’s pieces are each original in their own way, designed to be special for every different woman. The motto of the project is actually: “Let your uniqueness be inspired”.

Colors, textures and shapes grow out of a simple and intuitive creative process during which I let myself be naturally guided by my hands and feelings towards the final form. Inspiration comes from beauty, wherever it can be found and experienced. It may be the gorgeousness of nature, the glamour of a city, the grace of simplicity. Each single detail is enough to evoke the main idea which will then be developed until the final form.

Paper (crepe and tissue paper, cardboard, newspaper cuts…) is generally chosen as main material because it is extremely versatile and can be reprocessed and reused. Also, paper seems to be extremely fragile, but it actually hides a great strength and flexibility, two qualities that make it ever-challenging. Combining paper, natural fibers, post-industrial waste and other eco-friendly materials together, I am constantly looking for a balance between eco-consciousness, practicability and style.

Even though some of these uniquely handmade pieces challenge the definition of jewelry and accessories, and many criss-cross their way through the boundaries between art, design and fashion, comfort is an important element in the wearing of them. That’s why all designs, whatever the inspiration, are translated into tactile and durable pieces with subtle textures or more complex and layered finishes.

Always leaving room for the interpretation and creativity of the women who wear them, all quasicaramelle’s pieces catch the eye with their peculiar, unique style.
