About Bodyfurnitures

Paper: The central element in the creation of extraordinary feather-weight jewelry I started working as a goldsmith in 1979 in Italy and then moved on to designing pieces for a company specialized in exclusive jewelry handcrafted from carefully selected materials such as gold, diamonds and gems.

More About Bodyfurnitures

The jewelry I create is a product of long years spent as a traditional jeweler, decorator and painter.

Each piece is unique, as is the spark that inspired it: a splash of colour, a half-glimpsed fleeting shape, or a combination of the two.

On my quest for ideal work materials I settled for paper, gold wire and gems, opting for the lightness and malleability of paper rather than the hardness and rigidity of metal.

Each piece of jewelry starts out as an idea subsequently refined in a detailed drawing and finally takes shape as a three-dimensional object accompanied by a description, the original drawing and a list of all materials employed.
