THE STORY

My name is Enrica, I have a small shop in Sarzana, a small Medieval town between the "5 terre" and Tuscany, where I create silver and bronze jewels with the wax jack technique.
My jewels are inspired by the nature around me, by the sea and by the woods where I often go for long walks. They are little sculture with soft and sinuous shapes, I often add them some cultured pearls or precious stones, to make them even more unique.
Every single piece is created in wax, like a little sculture, and then it is liquefied in silver or bronze and hand finished in the workshop that you can see.
The metal is made partly polished and partly opaque, sometimes it is treated with acids and oxides, that give each object an antique and unique patina.
I have always wanted to do this job, since I was a child I plait branches, flowers and blades of grass to make them jewels that reminded the metal. Now, that I am grown-up, I work and shape the wax to reproduce the branches, the flowers and the nature shapes that I made at that time.
I did my first goldsmith course in London and then I continued with other wax and metal modeling courses in Milan. There I worked in the small shop of a goldsmith master, where I learned the technique and the secrets of the artisanal production.
About ten years ago I moved to Liguria where I have opened my laboratory.
