celia_offical2I make handmade jewelry

In my free time I make handmade jewelry. I love working with glass beads and semi-precious stones. I live in Italy. Fortunately, I get to travel often and look for beads and stones everywhere I go. I came from New York to Milan, Italy to work as a model. I was lucky enough to have worked for some of the top Italian fashion houses. My modeling days are long gone but my love for fashion, design and creation has stayed with me! I studied jewelry making with Maestro Davide DePaoli and worked as his apprentice.

My style

I define my style as Shabby Chic Boho Jewelry with a Touch of Vintage Style. I like using real vintage beads and vintage style metal beads, glass beads, and semi-precious metal components. I’m inspired by art, movies, and personal style of friends, family and people I see everyday here in Italy.

Inspiration

I live in Italy. Here there is inspiration everywhere. I came from New York to Milan, Italy to work as a model. I was lucky enough to have worked for some of the top Italian fashion houses. My modeling days are long gone but my love for fashion, design and creation has stayed with me! 

I went to the Castello Sforzesco art school in Milan where I fell in love with artwork and decorative motifs of the Italian Renaissance. I have learned the importance of exploring new materials and how exciting it was mixing them. I love working with glass beads and semi-precious stones and metals.

Often my creations are inspired by Old World Europe. I like using warm Earth tones; semi-precious stones, natural colors and mixed metals. I like to think my pieces are long lost thoughts and memories looking to come back as modern amulets and talismans.
