She may not claim to be an artist, but we beg to differ! Lucilla Giovanninetti is an artist-cum-artisan whose embrace of art and the natural world enables her to bathe every bracelet, necklace, ring and pair of earrings in whimsy and magic.
“Pizzo” or lace in Italian plays to Lucilla’s love for the whimsical. With these gorgeous earrings our artisan tells a tale in lace; one that in its modern expression engages us in a charming way. Light as a feather, these bronze beauties bounce softly with every move, catching the light as they do, showing off their very becoming asymmetrical shape that captures their overtly contemporary mood.
Lucilla’s lace-motif bronze earrings for pierced ears speak to her abilities as a maker of fine jewellery. Indeed, you cannot go wrong with these strikingly beautiful and ever so versatile golden earrings!
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…
