part of the "Scales" jewels collection,
handmade by Roberto Intorre,
Length (open) 47 cm
The collection of jewels "Scales" might look like a simple reference to the animal world, roof tiles or medieval armors. But, if you take the time to look at them more closely, you'll discover that each piece is a juxtaposition of elements with a deeper story and a richer meaning.
The jewels of this collection - like this elegant necklace - remind us of how many layers a human being can possess, protected from the outside world by a shield made of "scales".
Roberto Intorre is an architect, a designer and a goldsmith who uses his creations to tell story of his land, Sicily. The blue of the sea, the red of the coral, the black of the lava stone or the green of the prickly pear. These are only some of the sources of inspirations behind his jewels. Each one of them has its birth, its story and identity, which is slowly shaped thanks to skilled hands and careful handicraft work.
