The Story

I’ve been designing and selling contemporary art jewelry since 2006. I’m based in Bologna, Italy and I love to travel everywhere to get new inspiration for my collections. I did anthropological studies and my research is about jewelry as a language between human beings, styles and different ways of experiencing the beauty of reality.

I started my career as a designer working for Mondadori Casaviva, then I specialized in jewelry design. Since 2003, my creations have been recognized for their uniqueness by Elle, Vogue Accessories, Collezioni Accessori, Cosmopolitan, Collezioni Sposa, Marie Claire, Marie Claire 2, Glamour, Fashion, Flair, Grazia, Gioia, GQ Germany, Vogue Gioiello. My production has increased exponentially along with a distribution network in the best luxury boutiques of Italy and around the world and I’m happy to share these special, one-of-a-kind jewels with you.
