About

Wire shapes

Hello,
my name is Mary, I am 49 years old and I live near Milan, in Italy.
My little workroom is located in the garden, in the shade of a grove of giant,
nearly century-old bamboo.
Among the rustling of their leaves I love freeing my imagination and invent copper ornaments;
the inspiration that led me to want to create them, came to me by creating 
wire wrapped aluminium decorations, shaped by hand, to be applied to my bags.

For my creations I use pure copper wire in different diameters
that I model and wrap by hand
with small pliers and a hammer: all unique handworks that,
although repeatable items, are never identical.
Why did I choose Copper? I love its warm colors,
its gleaming hues, like the rays of the sun ... I like his “living”,
his oxidizing, assuming nuanced and aged tones to protect itself against corrosion.
I like to give my jewelry a geometric and linear design,
and obtain, starting from a simple wire, originals and evocative forms.

I personally take care of everything that revolves around my creations:
from concept, to the presentation and the creation of the packaging, for which I use a white and colored card of first choice.

My wish is always to offer to those who choose a creation of mine
the opportunity to buy, or donate, a quality item genuinely thought with the heart
and authentically crafted by hand, with attention to every detail, handmade and exclusive.

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

Copper is a metal that, to protect itself against corrosion,
tends to oxidize rapidly when in contact with air and light
taking in the time a nice, warm and aged colour.
However, if you prefer to wear your necklace always shining,
I recommend you keep it in a cotton bag and inside
a box and clean it from time to time,
immersing it in a solution made up of a glass
of white vinegar and a heaping tablespoon of sea salt.
Then rinse thoroughly with warm water
and dry it very well.

Custom and personalised orders

I gladly accept custom orders because my intent
is to be able to satisfy your desires.
However, I kindly ask you the foresight not to order at the last,
as it will take me some time to fulfill it.
I remind you that for a custom order I ask prepayment
and I do not accept returns.

Gift wrapping and packaging

You will receive your jewel in an elegant gift box,
designed and made by myself, carefully packed in a rigid box
suitably padded. So it is ready to be offered as a gift.
You just have to put the dedication and signature on the special card.

Combined orders

If you made multiple orders, in the cart page they are not combine automatically. If you would like them to be combined, please,
contact me before to order.
