My collections emphasize the strength, the authenticity, the creativity,
the femininity, the elegance of the modern woman.
They combine the beauty and flair of Italy with the aesthetics of
European art history.
The enthusiasm for jewelry, objects, fabrics and fashion has always been a part of me. I think that as half-Italian and daughter of art historians I was born with this passion and affinity with beauty. Perhaps it was also this environment that made me to create my own design objects.
Two souls were always burning in my chest: the German and the Italian, the artistic and the entrepreneurial. For a long time I didn't feel that I would belong anywhere. So I created my own world in which high aesthetic and human individuality are my characteristic aspects.
And what would be more beautiful than translating this into your own jewelry creations, into your own object creations - and into your whole lifestyle!
On this site discover earrings, necklaces, bracelets, rings, hair accessories in bronze, silver and pearls. Each piece of jewelry is handmade by me. In this way, unique pieces are created with a very own, individual handwriting.
Various candlesticks and bowls form the basis of the object collection. Each piece is also modelled by me in wax and cast in bronze in a traditional, old-established foundry in Munich . These objects are also unique in itself.
