The nature-friendly jewels of Maddalena Bearzi

An Italian woman who lives and works in Los Angeles, Maddalena Bearzi. She is passionate about jewels, but also about oceanic fauna, she thought of combining the two and created jewels that are a manifestation of solidarity towards the nature of the sea. In short, they are eco friendly jewels. It is no coincidence that the designer began her jewelry production by combining sustainable fabrics with solid distinctive elements such as recycled metals and natural stones, to create unique pieces. Each piece is handcrafted individually, mostly with silver and finished with gold, with precious and semiprecious stones. But she also uses bronze, brass and copper to create original shapes.
