Brief Summary
I was born on the 4th of September 1975 in Valenza (Italy), capital of Italian goldsmiths. Here I studied jewelry design, and then dedicate myself to the study of set design and interior design at the Accademy of Fine Arts of Brera in Milan.

For over ten years I have dedicated myself to jewelry design, researching new trends such as colors, materials and shapes.

Experience allows me to meet the wider demands of the customer, doing the work commissioned by starting to sketch and concept, searching for suitable materials to the final item.

Always using different materials, each object created is unique and different from others. The variety of the materials used gives even more glamorous and personality to the object.

Creativity and originality are the basis of my work, always ready to meet my clients, with a ratio of professionalism, safety and privacy.
