The fragment of Nature that you will wear is a tribute to the Mirabilis Jalapa. I have collected many seeds of mirabilis jalapa (beautiful at night) in my life. I find it splendid. The flowers of this spontaneous plant hatch at dusk and give off a very intense scent that recalls night butterflies. The Jalapa releases these beautiful seeds (blacks in orgina) unexpectedly spreads where she wants with stubborn, wild and delicate beauty. A friend, a person who helped me a lot with the techniques to make my collection, told me that her father, when he was alive, collected the seeds of Mirabilis and then scattered them around the country, sowing beauty. This story struck me very much, a man, a father who sows beauty, receiving in return the intense love I read in his daughter's eyes. https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mirabilis_jalapa

The 'fragment of Nature' you will wear is a tribute to the lime trees. This is the cast, the fusion and processing of a branch that had broken on the tree, maybe becouse of wind. The buds have therefore remained closed, with their promise of leaves. This lime tree has been planted, along with many others in an urban park. The lime trees produces inflorescences with a very particular 'design' giving us a delicious scent in late spring. plant:https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tilia
Thuja leaf necklace. Available in silver or gold.
The 'fragment of Nature' you will wear is a tribute to the trees of Thuja. I have often smelled thuje, they have a very good balsamic perfume. They are plants of different species and I have always been fascinated by the structures of their leaves, so different from our idea of smooth and compact leaf. The texture that forms the surface of the leaf inspired these pieces, I absolutely wanted to reproduce it. I picked some leaves (respecting and thanking the tree) and I reproduced the perfect mold of the leaf. For more info about the plant:https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thuja
T.I.B Togheter Is Better necklace. Available in silver or gold.
The 'fragment of Nature' you will wear is a tribute to Camelias. The fruit of the camellia is a little ball that opens in spring, initially green then becomes brown and woody and opens up, leaving the seeds free. A very beautiful, smooth, oily seed with a "navel" on the top. One morning I found, in a newly hatched fruit, this round, beautiful seed. It looks like it’s split in two, actually they are two seeds. I found it beautiful. With a deep meaning in itself. Two people who love each other, in the deepest and broadest sense that this word can have: women, men , without boundaries of age, sex, race. I called it TIB: Togheter Is Better. Nature always expresses itself eloquently, without any word. https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Camellia
Mothers necklace. Silver and gold. Available in total gold.
The 'fragment of Nature' you will wear is a tribute to Camelias.I love camelias. I take care of them, I feed them, I admire them when they bloom and when they have ‘only’ the buds. The buds are beautiful, firmly compact, a promise of petals in groups of three, four five. Wonderful camellias in every season. The fruit of the camellia is a little ball that opens in spring, initially green then becomes brown and woody and opens up, leaving the seed it keeps free. One spring morning I collected this seed hatched with the seed I was about to be 'thrown' away from the mother plant * I immediately understood the beautiful message, what this capsule and this seed expressed: the sense of motherhood: leaving one's children when they are ready, let them grow far away but always be there, ready to welcome with the gold we have inside. Two pendants in one, for two people. Mother and child or great, eternal friendships. A hug never denied. The plants leave their seeds free, throw them away to find new fertile soils where they can grow without the shadow of the mother plant. Fonti per approfondire: https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Camellia
