"Botanic jewelry"

My name is Viviana, I am a mother, I live in Brescia, a large city in northern Italy. When I was a child I loved drawing sheets full of butterflies or flowers. Then I played the violin at the conservatory for 4 years. I studied chemistry and biology and finally I graduated in architecture. The work that has chosen me is the restorer of works of art. From the first day I loved the smell of lime mixed with incense and the atmosphere that is created on site with the light of the spotlights ... My relationship with this art is of hate-love: the working conditions are physically heavy, uncomfortable positions to keep for hours, hot asphyxiating, unbearable cold. Not to mention the economic and contractual conditions that almost always border on exploitation. So I approached my experience as an artisan - designer of "creations for people". I try different techniques, resin, crochet, semi-precious stones and finally copper! I realize I adore him, to appreciate all his shades of color, the degree of brilliance, the infinite patinas he can take. I close the circle then looking again, as I did as a child, butterflies and flowers! I have a visceral passion for all types of mosses, lichens and ferns. Nature gives me the raw material, I let myself be inspired only by her, the rest comes after failed chemical experiments, welds and tests on evidence of ugliness to throw away. Despite my age registering to be close to half a century, I always feel at the beginning of new adventures. My sense of inadequacy hampers me a lot, but thanks to yoga and the beautiful people around me I do not give up, I want to turn into beautiful objects what passes in my hands! If you want to follow me in my path. I need encouragement and stories of beautiful people! Hari Om

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I will be very happy to receive customized orders!

Sizing details

Ask me also before buying details on the size of your item, especially the rings. I will send you the measurement method.

Care instructions

I recommend using a particular care. Electroformed copper is harder but more rigid. Do not force organic items.To maintain the textures the copper layer is quite thin. Not for this reason the articles have failed but it is their nature. Copper is subject to oxidation, it is a natural process that I personally love.The oxidations are chemical reactions that go to form different patinas depending on the substances with which they come into contact. The colors of the oxidation patinas are of many colors and shades ranging from black to brown, red, green, purple and blue!
If you love instead the color of the non-oxidized copper,just brush your copper article with lemon and cooking salt:the copper will come back clear and shiny! I'm a chemist!

Gift wrapping and packaging

If there's one thing I've always liked, pack the gift packages! I did not put the "gift package" option, because I always do it and they are always different and original, I do not like buying them ... but sometimes I have to take into account the weight of the package for postal costs, and use ugly hard packs and pluriball because my article does not suffer damage during transport. Contact me if you need a particular package if you need to make an important gift.

Wholesale availability

I can not produce wholesale. Mine is a small craft workshop, and I hope it stays that way!
