Antonella’s jewellery takes inspiration from the overlooked or discarded. Reinterpreting familiar objects and highlighting their beauty by their transformation into precious metals, she addresses issues of value. Collected objects become part of a romantic story and emerge as rediscovered relics of the modern world, akin to fossils of the future. A lonely knot of string, a delicate wrap of thread or fragments of broken shell, given permanence in silver become desirable objects of intrigue. In limited edition collections often using striking contrasts of precious metal colours and finishes, her jewellery evokes a feeling of ancient times.
