My name is Monica,
I live and work in Orvieto in Umbria, Italy, where I was born. I am inspired by
the beauty that I am surrounded by, propelling me towards art and creativity; inspired by the study
of classics towards the origin and plasticity of form.
I have been making my jewelry for over twenty-five years, and in doing so keep the child living in
me very much alive: I enjoy playing, inventing, creating, astonishing!
I began my career working for a prestigious goldsmith and sculptors’ workshop for six years,
however, it has been the first-hand experience of having my own atelier that has given me the
training and experience that I have today.
It is my nature to challenge the convention of handicraft art. I create a revolutionary collection;
bringing into life a precious object, making it beautiful, refined, special, unique, and dreamlike –
detaching it from its material value.
It was during my visit to Palazzo Manassei, one of the most important palaces in Orvieto, that I had
a vision about my hone lab. Now, it is my place of creation and magic. It is here that I surrender
myself to the frenzy of creation; experimenting, shaping, melting, and forging metals. I dive in to
each piece, getting dirty, breaking my nails - but I do not mind, the only thing I care about is the
moment that my precious object is finished.
I do not fear sacrifice.
My desire to create jewelry comes from the dream to communicate the incommunicable, have my
pieces be the hymn to life, a wish for evergreen fullness, a powerful talisman of love, hope and joy.
