STYLE MEETS SUSTAINABILITY IN ONE OF A KIND CREATIONS - A deep respect for 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.
