The Hours UNIQUE PIECES HANDMADE IN ITALY Travelling is at the center of my world. New faces, images and flavors indelibly enter my memory: a unique opportunity for enrichment, I recall them in my creations with all the evocative power they deserve. A closer look shows a leitmotif running through my work, each jewel arising from the combination of objets trouvés I collect during my travels and precious materials I personally choose and compound. A love letter, antique English buttons, Chinese boules from the 1800s, vintage chips from american casinos: found in a drawer, discovered in antique shops and flea markets or visiting collectors around the world, they are skillfully set with diamonds, rubies, emeralds, surrounded by gold cast in different colors, ultimately giving birth to unique jewelry pieces. This is my challenge: conceive and create one-of-a-kind jewels, each of which containing a world in miniature, the result of a marriage between unexpected distant worlds but which, brought together, become something unique and unrepeatable.
