Lucilla Giovanninetti’s early exposure to the arts and subsequent training in jewellery-making has served her well.
Bracelet fondale in cast bronze shares in equal measure her sensibilities for contemporary design, and a dedication to creating jewels that hold on to artisanal traditions while staying open to the here and now.
In this vein, heritage with a modern twist aptly describes a bracelet whose name “fondale” means background, and as such is a stage set ready for you to bring to life with your special touch.
In the meantime, you may like to consider pairing this beautifully crafted bracelet, as shown, with a long sleeve snug shirt. Or you may contrast its modernity with a sharply tailored classic suit. Better still, you may like to play along with a fearless use of colour. Irrespective, this stunning accessory Made in Italy will cater to your every mood and whim.
About the Designer
In a postindustrial district of Milan, where 1920s architecture holds sway, we find Lucilla Giovanninetti in her workshop creating wearable art jewellery with a certain irreverence for time.
“Everything I do starts with inspiration. I look, and observe attentively, engraving in my heart and mind different forms and sensations.”
Lucilla honed her craft while at the “Accademia di Arte Orafa” in Milan (Goldsmith Academy). There she learned the time-honoured metallurgical techniques including the most difficult and complex – a method called “cera persa” or “cire perdue,” used by sculptors to create their prototype forms.
In 2010 Lucilla launched her first designs under the name “Eandare.” The Italian Collection is honoured to present a small handpicked selection of Lucilla’s numbered pieces – a capsule of bracelets, earrings, necklaces and pendants in finely polished natural bronze – that can be worn as complete sets or for a different effect, singly.
So have fun and live creatively with Lucilla’s Eandare…
