DALLE STELLE ALLE STALLE - concept handmade necklace
I developed this necklace during one of the three workshps in the post graduation master "DDG - Design Del Gioiello - at the Politecnico di Milano in 2010.
Under Giorgio Vigna's guide the class had to develop a jewel starting with all sorts of ropes.
I chose a string, very rough and thick, and gold plated copper wire: thin, shiny and strong. Combining the two materials I transformed the characteristics of both of them, creating a voluminous and structured necklace.
"Dalle stalle alle stelle" mens "From rugs to riches", indicating the added value given by the manual work.
