Artisan practices that give Italy an edge may not have endured without staunch defenders like Lucilla Giovanninetti. In the mythical workshop where her hands, heart and mind give voice to the artist, they also pay homage to these artisanal values.
Lucilla’s stunning thorn-motif bracelet clearly shows the harmony that exists between the old and the new; between the rigorous demands of making by hand, and the challenges of contemporary design.
The bracelet also underlines a playful, “trans-generational” appeal, and as such displays Lucilla’s unique design style that treads a path in tandem, but not in line with fashion trends.
Simple, elegant, contemporary and timeless this golden bronze bracelet Made in Italy will easily jazz up one and more of your ensembles.
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…
