‘Like an embroiderer from past times I make precious jewels in the shape of lace; gold and silver become a fabric to be enriched with small diamonds and rubies. Thus I have become an ambassador of a style that blends the rediscovery of ancient traditions, such as handmade lace, to the most noble of materials. Earrings, rings and necklaces in silver, white and yellow gold are born of the desire to recreate lacework in an illusion that only reveals itself by touch.
Venezia plays with this illusion. I was inspired by a wonderful, handcrafted Venetian lace that I discovered in a small shop in Venice during my honeymoon. Through its transformation into precious metal, the traditional rather unsophisticated lace collar becomes a dazzling accessory.’
