      A young designer from Bologna city, daughter of an architect and an artisan. After completing Classical Studies and obtaining a degree in Architecture, she decided to follow her artistic nature and completely devote herself to handmade jewellery creation. Her passion blossomed together with her blog, "Giulielleria", which immediately let her obtain fame and esteem demonstrations throughout Italy. Her first jewels were made of copper wire and crystals, although over time she began to specialize in leather and work with scraps to add an ethical aspect to her production. Her creations also include other materials like steel, silver, brass and natural rubbers. The techniques she uses are unconventional and related to the need of creating without sticking to predetermined rules, to bring distant suggestions back to her creations.

       

      My pieces, due to my classical education, always hark back to literary, artistic or
      cinematographic references.

       



       

      Her leather works are completely handcrafted and inspired by eco-sustainable principles. Cuts and seams are totally handmade, there is no use of die-cutting, the adhesives used are non-toxic, and processing times are very long, therefore.

      Her production is the result of careful and laborious research that includes collections and original pieces that, after having seen the light on the shores of Lake of Como, are destined to know the whole world.
