The roots of My Passion for Jewellery are probably to be searched at the time when I was a child. I’ve spent so many afternoons snooping in my mother and grandmother’s treasures listening to the stories behind every single piece hidden in their jewellery boxes, and I used to have fun to draw them like princesses with their jewels. Now, 20 years later, one of the things I love the most is to remodel and reinvent these jewels full of life’s stories by pulling them out from the drawers where they’ve slept to give them a new form and a new life.
After graduating with honours at the Academy of Fine Arts in Italy, I attended the ‘Scuola Orafa Ambrosiana’, the jewellery making and design school in Milan, where I deepen my knowledge about jewellery making, design and CAD.
After working for a while in Italy in 2015 I decided to leave for Australia.
