Giuliana Michelotti launched her eponymous label in 1995 but had been designing jewelry for almost 20 years before that. Her extensive travels and studies in Asia, Africa and India inform many of her fine jewelry designs, which are inspired by her love of nature. Her pieces harness natural forms, reinterpreting them with the distinct imprint of the artist. She has adapted an ancient Indian technique of hand-molded wax that allows her to create silver jewelry that is substantial and highly textured but light and comfortable. Giuliana Michelotti pieces are distinguished by their handcrafted settings and voluptuous shapes.
