My name is Monica.
I am living and working in Orvieto, in Umbria (Italy), where I was born.
I am urged by the Beauty of the places that surround me
towards Art and creativity,
by the Classic Studies towards the origin and plasticity of
Although I have been creating jewels for over twenty three years
I have always kept alive the child living in me: I enjoy playing, inventing, creating, astonishing!
I have been working in a prestigious goldsmith and sculptor workshop for six years
however, the firsthand experience in my own atelier has been
the actual training until today..
From my very nature the challenge to the handicraft art:
to invent a revolutionary collection able to bring into life a
precious object, beautiful, refined, special, unique, dreamlike and narrative,
detached by its material value.
When I visited one of the most important palaces in Orvieto, Palazzo Manassei,
I had a vision like experience of my home studio
Now, it is a forge of creation and magic.
There I surrender myself to the frenzy of creation experimenting:
shaping, melting and forging metals.
I get dirty, I break my nails but I do not mind,The only thing
I long is the moment the precious object will be finished.
I do not fear the path.
From my dreams: the desire to realize jewel able to communicate the incommunicable,
as a hymn to life, a wish for evergreen fullness,
as a powerful talisman of love,
hope and joy.
