Biography:

I am a dedicated jewellery designer and maker who committed to the field of experimentation on different techniques and materials. I'm enthusiastic about the ancient Art of Italy, technology, engineering and innovation, fascinated as well by the colours, the shapes and the opalescence of the Art Deco Jewellery My inspiration are Fairy Tales and Nature: the pieces of my collections are like the jewellery that the Fairies can wear picking up pieces of Nature. With a sculptural vision of the pieces, I'm always looking for shapes that fit perfectly to the body in motion: that makes my jewellery very wearable and comfortable. My signature in jewellery is "Glass Granulation": inspired by the ancient technique of granulation in gold, I use granules of glass with a sort of enameling on the top of my pieces. The result is a charming surface which makes the pieces just unique

Fiore di Venezia Resin Enameling "Glass granulation" ( my personal technique)
