Lucilla Giovanninetti makes contemporary jewellery that seems to redefine how we see, and wear her modern output. With such a distinctive style her necklaces, pendants, rings and bracelets cannot be pigeonholed or linked to anyone trend. Rather they speak their own language of unique, elegant, and for all seasons.
This thorny pendant brought to life in cast bronze is a case in point. Here Lucilla’s eye and creative genius takes centre stage as she transforms an organic branch into an unexpectedly elegant trans-seasonal jewel that works with almost everything.
Wear it with a short chain, or a long one, as shown. Match this gorgeous pendant to a high-neck sweater, a cotton tea shirt or a silk one. In every which way Lucilla’s golden tone bronze pendant necklace handmade in Italy is “de rigueur” no matter what they show on the runway…
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…
