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…
