Thought and inspiration

The thought

The years of absence from the goldsmith sector helped me find the woman I had lost.

Years lived in places I never thought I would live, spent understanding what and how to start again. Years of research to understand that within me I could find the most beautiful, most intense, truest journey and that, only by stopping looking, could I find.

These were years during which I developed even more passion for jewelry and the desire to propose myself again; but only after having found the jewel that I first wanted to wear.

Maria and Luisa Jewels is the multiple identity of a single name; it is a skilful blend of the scents of Asia and the West together, of gypsy culture combined with the flavor of the land that is close to me.

Maria and Luisa Jewels embodies the synthesis of the woman I am, expresses the passion for my work and represents the union between past, present and future.

Maria and Luisa Jewels is the embrace and wonder that I found in the streets of the world and that now I want you to feel too.

Desire and inspiration

The word memory is static when it is not accompanied by the emotion of the backward journey that it presupposes.

An emotion is the journey inspired by the desire to expose oneself to the new without the fear of recognizing oneself in the places.

A collected stone worked by time or the sea is rich in shape-creating energy.

A leaf, a berry or a splinter of wood, if searched for and then found, brings with it the emotion felt.

Looking at some dried red roses hanging on a shelf, I asked the woman who had kept them how they could still be so beautiful after so long. She smiled at me and replied: because they are full of good luck wishes and the roses don't want to leave them.

If I think about my jewels I don't want people to say that they are beautiful, it would reduce them to banal souvenirs. I want them to be fragments of idyll to place on the table in quiet moments...
