Hi, I’m Francesca and I make jewels… Other than usual!
I am 26 years old and I live in the countryside near Milan, in northern Italy.
I don’t remember exactly when I started to create, really! I was so small that maybe I was 5 or 6 years old… Boh, say a few years.
As a child I started with the classic flowers (who has never felt the joy of wearing the precious crowns of daisies?), I was soon passed to the copper wire and I then experimented with modelling pastes and paper materials.
At the high school I learned the art of enamel in focus and at the university I studied mineralogy, gemmology, the properties of metals and a lot of other things.
But (if you hadn’t figured it out yet)I ‘m not a scientist.
I moved to Vicenza, the most important Goldsmith’s district in Italy, where the cult of gold and the history of the jewel result in the tradition that is today boast international.
Here I studied jewellery and discovered the innovations of 3D printing.
Now I started a new adventure!
Oval Jewels: Thanks to the singular expressions, they accompany every kind of day.
Choosing is easy, you just have to ask… And today, how do I feel?
I have the impression that the need to express one’s feelings is a fundamental theme of our society, the easiest way to do this is through the expressions of our face.
This is a language used all over the world. A language that everyone can understand!
But those around us do not always understand our state of mind, for example: you are at work, you have a lot to do and the stress increases… the joking colleague arrives and begins to speak in vain… and the only thing that goes through your head is: “How does he not understand that he must stay away?!!”
So it started my project. I wanted to make anyone free to express themselves through a jewel.
At the same time, I wanted to change the meaning and the way to wear a jewel: that is no longer a simple decoration, but thanks to Oval becomes a compass of our feelings and an indicator for those around us.
