Spending many hours following dolphins and whales in the wild, I find inspiration for many of my jewelry pieces when I am out on my research boat. This one of a kind necklace, for example, is inspired by wavelets at sunset. The piece, called “ondine e serpentina”, is handcrafted in bronze and reclaimed silver, and finished with a serpentine gemstone. The chain is made of oxidized silver.
Coral reefs are some of the most diverse ecosystems in the world. Thousands of species of corals have been discovered in different parts of our oceans. New studies show that these reefs may be able to adapt to moderate climate warming, improving their chance of surviving through the end of this century, only if there are large reductions in carbon dioxide emissions. This one of a kind, handmade piece called “barriera corallina bianca e nera” is inspired by the beauty of coral reefs.

My lucertola necklace/bracelet was featured in the Lifestyle section of the Home Business Magazine this month (read: Dazzle the Mompreneur in Your Life this Mother’s Day with These Must-Have Jewelry Gift Picks). Inspired by reptiles, this sustainable piece becomes a bracelet once it loses its “tail”, just like lizards release their tail when escaping a predator. Available in lovely sand tones or blue tones, it features brass, reclaimed bronze and metal, and Japanese silk.
Andrea wears the one of a kind millepiede necklace and the new medusa earrings from my upcoming Spring Collection in Venice, California. These handmade jewelry pieces are now available in my online shop and they will be soon featured in selected stores.
