Description

This Italian company, located in Catania, Sicily, was founded in 2015 when two women, an architect and a graphic designer, decided to change their lives, and to start realising things manually. What originated is an hybrid jewellery, a combination of local traditions and modernity, artisan and industrial elements. The whole production is predominantly realised using bronze, either gold-plated, rosé-plated or ruthenium-plated. What matters the most is the material itself, with its inner qualities, the way it moves and changes position according to body's movements, and even the sounds it produces when doing so. That is why, company's jewels have been defined as "moving jewels" or even better as microarchitectures. Hand tools, such as files, sandpaper, saws are deployed ad hoc, as the materials themselves suggest. A moving project for these moving jewels, as the production takes place in two laboratories, settled in Venice and Catania. The rings mainly present unusual square bases, while a few of them also include mobile parts. Their originality lies in the kinetic quality of the micro-sculptural elements set on these square bases. Venetian pearls (declared UNESCO patrimony), Murano glass, Caltagirone and other Sicilian ceramics, volcanic lava stone and so forth are used to produce them. The company is interested in developing a network of agents and distributors appreciating both the artistic technique and the potential of the Made in Italy. The products are ideally suited to be displayed and sold in museum and exhibitions, as well as in bookshops, concept stores and even niche fashion retail spaces. The company offers to its potential partners the possibility to include a niche section of "Made in Italy". This jewellery has a great commercial appeal, since it combines together Venetian artistic traditions with unusual Sicilian materials, able to pique the interests of many. The lab is also available in realize tailor made jewels for those partners aiming at personalize artworks on their needs.
