How does your territory influence your work?
Every step in creating a jewel is wonderful: choosing the stone, the first drawings, handcrafting the piece. A special moment happens when I hold a stone in my hands and I realize what it will become. It’s the stone itself that suggests it to me. It is a magical moment each time. Nowadays, I love creating custom-made jewels, as their demand keeps increasing. I love working on a piece for a specific woman, or on a pair of cufflinks for a man, or on a dress set (with cufflinks and buttons) for a special occasion. To me it is like sharing a unique and precious moment in a person’s life. It is truly gratifying, and it makes me happy.
How important is tradition to you?
Our adventure would not have been possible without the long jewelry-making tradition of our workshop. It is a real pleasure for us to replicate those same gestures that master goldsmiths have performed for centuries and, at the same time, to work on new designs with new materials, to create contemporary objects. In our job, it is paramount to be faithful to the tradition of the craft and to cherish our past, because that is what allows us to create contemporary jewels: by mixing tradition with experimentation of new techniques and new materials.
