About The Artist

Brooklyn, NY
Jewelry - Metal

Before opening my jewelry design studio, I worked in an opera theater as a public relations professional. Life is an experiment to me, and jewelry is the most significant creative experiment of my life. I take risks to ensure that I constantly challenge my creativity. From my immigration from Italy to New York to leaving my career to pursue my passion for jewelry design.

Tell us how your work is made.

What makes you passionate about the medium you work with?

I am interested in bringing color to my work and I'm studying enamel and resins. In my everyday practice I rely mostly on silver -often oxidized- and brushed gold which bring attention to the inner beauty of gemstones. As light bringers, diamonds are the best- if a ring is a tale, a diamond is the hero that brings hope against a black pool of silver. But no matter the material I use - expensive or inexpensive- it always feels special to share even a tiny little thing with a customer.

What is something unique about you or your practice?

Sometimes I allow myself to scrape and score my pieces. When the work would otherwise be seen as “ready”, I start roughing it. I stab, melt, scratch - whatever feels right. I aim to find something, a path that won't and can't be repeated. In those moments of quick decisions, I'm entirely and absolutely free of conventional aesthetics limitations.
