I am an Italian architect and jewelry designer based in Zurich, Switzerland. Born in Novi Ligure (Italy), I was formed as an Architect at the Academy of Architecture of Mendrisio and after a few years spent travelling and working in Paris, Milan and London, I have decided to establish my jewellery atelier in Zurich. Jewelry design has been a passion and interest for the last ten years and it has always gone hand in hand with architecture.
The creative process behind my pieces of jewelry takes place in different ways. It can start from a formal or aesthetic inspiration, from a memory, or from the request of the client. Often a creative error turns into an element of interest, so when a piece is not finished yet, a second is already born. Sometimes the process is completely random and spontaneous. Every piece of jewelry is handmade, “imperfect” and therefore unique.
The jewels are the representation of my close encounters with materials, techniques, forms, references, images, stories, people, souls, memories.
I am pleased to announce that the Earrings “Dafne” and “Zefiro” have just been honoured with the A’ Design Award at Jewellery, Eyewear and Watch Design Competition 2018 among numerous nominated projects.
The A’ Design Award is a prestigious award judged by a panel of three different juries composed of Academic, Professional and Focus Group Members.
The earrings “Zefiro” have also been featured here.
Have a look!
