quasi caramelle is a project born out of the need to express myself beyond my day-to-day job as a copywriter.
My jewelry is the result of an intuitive creative process during which I let myself be guided by the uniqueness of materials and tactile sensations.
Inspiration comes from beauty: the gorgeousness of nature, the glamour of a city, the grace of simplicity. I really believe that beauty can be found everywhere: sometimes it is easy to perceive it, other times we have to look for it, but always it is there waiting to be discovered and enjoyed. Acknowledging it or trying to catch sight of it and then translate it into my work is what I like to do.
Since the beginning of my project, I have been interested in learning and experimenting with different techniques and materials, following my own personal research path.
