handmade onda ring reveals an ethereal organic form
by Maddalena Bearzi Jewelry from US
To express the ebb and flow of life, Italian jewelry artist Maddalena Bearzi has created the wave (“ONDA” in the language of the designer) ring. A single ONDA ring is a jewelry statement itself, but these rings create elegant ocean swells when combined together in the same or different metals.
You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment,” wrote Henry David Thoreau.
The ONDA ring is part of the ACQUA limited edition series (http://www.maddalenabearzi.com/handmade-limited-editions/?category=acqua) of handmade and it’s available in silver (with or without black patina, or oxidized), bronze and 14k solid gold.
Other handmade jewelry by this designer – such as the Aria, Pianeta and Terra collections or her innovative textile pieces – can be found in her online shop at http://www.maddalenabearzi.com.

STYLE MEETS SUSTAINABILITY IN ONE OF A KIND CREATIONS - A deep respect of nature, a passion for the discovery of different cultures, textures and materials, and a commitment to ethical and environmentally-friendly practices are at the heart of this handmade, unique jewelry line. Maddalena Bearzi began making jewelry by joining sustainable textiles with distinctive elements such as repurposed metals, upcycled vintage charms and natural stones, to reveal unique and texturized pieces. Textile-based creations have expanded to a focus on one of a kind, organic metal jewelry. Each piece is individually handcrafted. Take a look at her work at: www.maddalenabearzi.com.
