By: Maddalena Bearzi Jewelry
Los Angeles-based MADDALENA BEARZI JEWERLY is known for her unique craftsmanship of one-off wearable sculpture and limited-edition pieces inspired by the natural world. All work is done by hand, and nothing is mass-produced. This means that each one-off piece signed by the designer is and will always remain, an original jewel.
"A deep respect for nature has been an inspiration for my life's work as a marine biologist, a writer and a jewelry-maker,"
The new MAREA and ONDA bracelets, necklaces, rings and earrings are all part of the handmade ACQUA limited edition series. The pieces are available in silver, bronze and 14k, 18k, 22k and 24k solid gold and they make the perfect gift for the holidays.
MADDALENA BEARZI JEWERLY can be found in shops and galleries in California and overseas, as well in the designer's online shop at http://www.maddalenabearzi.com
One-off, limited edition or textile pieces – always inspired by natural themes - bear a unique, Italian name - a refreshing alternative to mass made products. The different collections include rings, earrings, necklaces, bracelets and many unisex designs that accommodate a range of personal styles and budgets.
