Elisabetta Manetti, Borgo San Lorenzo

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.
