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.
Here are a few jewelry tips to look unique, fearless, elegant and stylish.
First, tell a story. What your necklace, bracelets and earrings say about you? What's your personal story? Second, think outside the (jewelry) box. Carefully, find pieces that are different and handcrafted. Third, don't be afraid to layer and stack... but be tasteful about. Forth, mix and match fine jewelry with non-precious metal and textile pieces to create texture (again, be graceful when you do so).
