The idea of this one-of-a-kind statement necklace came from the small world of millipedes (‘millepiedi’ in the language of the Italian designer). Millipedes are arthropods characterized by having two pairs of jointed legs on most body segments.
Maddalena Bearzi organic jewelry is inspired by the magnificent natural world around us, a world to not only appreciate but also protect. Using methods and often upcycled materials that avoid depleting or destroying the Earth’s resources, her pieces exemplify that style and sustainability go hand in hand.
Each piece is handmade, unique, unisex and wearable in many ways, from choker to long necklace. Length: approx. 22″ (56cm); adjustable length. A textile version of the “millepiedi” is available here. Other handmade jewelry by this designer – such as the Aria, Pianeta and Terra collections or her innovative one of a kind pieces – can be found in her online shop at http://www.maddalenabearzi.com
