Faces, colours, smiles, encounters, discoveries, origins, smiles, stories, destinations, shapes, traditions, scents, smiles, music, texts, laughs, skins, smiles, museums, travels,…PEOPLE!!!

Every person inspires a different and unique response, every person is a jewel.  Jewels get attracted to each other and most of the time it is just “love at first sight”.

MATERIALS AND SHAPES            A photo showing a bunch of green stones.      A photo of a hand selecting blue lapi stones.     Photo showing tools from my workshop desk.

Our designs are the spontaneous result of contact and work with noble metals and precious and semi precious stones. Gems from all over the world pile up in our atelier and slowly take the form of a bracelet, necklace or earring.

Geometric beads disposed in asymmetric contrast give the exact singularity to unique items:

  • simple clean shapes combined with rough stones: the strength of Nature is highlighted in the ruggedness of unpolished stones.
  • precisely cut in cubes, discs, pyramids or facetted gems reveal all their brilliance and intensified colours.

Delicate or rough, tiny and fine or big and powerful, for man or woman, there is always a jewel waiting for you.

We are glad to share with you those moments in which you unsuccessfully try to rationalise the irrational and you end up simply falling for the piece that best suits your soul. Just like that. Or…the perfect piece is not among our ready made designs and you prefer to make your choice of beads to create your own personal jewel…and there, again, we are near you in the creative process of jewellery making!
