Lucilla Giovanninetti’s cloud-motif earrings triggers a childhood memory of languidly lying on the grass, and gazing up at the sky watching nature’s shade and rain warriors ebb and flow along the way.
One of many surreal and playful ideas floating around in Lucilla’s creative mind, these contemporary leaning gold earrings seem to not only immortalise abstract cloud formations, but capture a sense of being too.
Their amorphous shape, gracious and elegant hangs effortlessly from the earlobe, caressing the neckline and glistening magically with each movement, and touch of every sunbeam.
In their own remarkable way, Lucilla Giovanninetti’s sublime handmade earrings yield to our desires and wishes, just like the fluffy clouds that nurtured their inspiration. In a category of their own these arty earrings are “wearable art” fashioned to be worn and exhibited as often as possible. Enjoy them!
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…
