Marcella. I was born in Naples, Italy, where I lived and worked most of my life. About twenty years ago I started travelling, first sailing following the wind to New Zealand and then other routes, but always in places by the sea. I’ve been living and working in Singapore for some time and now I’m back sailing through the oceans, an experience what already changed my life once: living in the ocean. I’m a designer with a specialisation in the digital side, video postproduction and web. I like to think that my passion for jewellery design started when I was very young and used to visit my grandfather’s goldsmith office. I was fascinated by the care with which my grandfather handled each piece, and the stories they revealed. Now I like to experiment with different materials and organic shapes, modelling and sculpting wearable objects that can express my love for the sea. I’m still learning every day, every design I do, and this is what I enjoy the most. I think the value of jewellery is not what it is made from, but what it means to you. And for me an item of jewellery, to be part of me, needs to have a sign of the sea.
