A young artist from a Tuscan family with a renowned antiques business, Anna Porcu created her first collection of jewellery embellished with antique cameos in 2011.
Her knowledge of history and love of ancient art led her to search far and wide throughout Europe for nineteenth-century cameos to use in her exquisite creations.
"My jewellery tells a story whose meaning is encapsulated within the figures represented in each piece."
Her jewels are unique reinterpretations of antiques that are reworked and set in leather to give them a contemporary feel. And she relies on local goldsmiths and artisans to fashion each piece.
Her collection features cameos and leather, necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings that are embellished using gold, silver and natural stones.
