For over 20 years I have been designing and making jewels in limited series in my laboratory “Oro E.” of Borgo San Lorenzo, in the province of Florence. My works are inspired by what surrounds me: Tuscan architecture and landscapes, natural forms that I rework by bringing them back to my jewels. My “classical” training as a goldsmith, from the Florentine school, allows me to use the various techniques learned over the years to create both unique and reproducible pieces in limited series. I use lost wax casting, a very useful technique to reproduce multiple pieces at low costs. Each piece is retouched by hand, finished and worked with care so as to make it practically unique.
The Oro E. collections in silver or bronze are dedicated to nature and are inspired by drawings and shapes of plants or stones. In some cases they are enriched with semi-precious stones, glass, wood, sand and pearls that give a touch of color. Often silver and bronze are not treated and can change over time influenced by the wearer and the environment. Some pieces are unique, made with watch dials or stones with an exclusive and non-reproducible shape and color. Each series includes various pieces such as rings, pendants, chokers, earrings and cufflinks. The gallery below shows some pieces from various collections.
