The natural order of things holds a certain fascination for Lucilla Giovanninetti, as does the world of art. In embracing both of these interests our artisan-artist has created an intimate world of handmade jewellery made with the purest of heart and the nimblest of hands.
The etchings strewn across the table in her studio give us a glimpse into her active creative mind. We see so many beautiful necklaces, earrings, bracelets, each one replete with a unique narrative informed by an art movement, perhaps nature’s whimsy or a sensation triggered by the pull of a particular material.
Lucilla’s thorn-motif earrings in bronze and silver emit their creator’s artistic flair, and a penchant for the contemporary. Imbued with understated elegance and style these simple earrings can do no wrong. Moreover, because they do not fall prey to any fickle trend they will last you a lifetime.
Lucilla’s advice on to how to wear them … none! She prefers that you curate your own look. We do too!
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…
