Cinzia Callegari Jewellery
Callegari – “Invent and experiment inspired by nature’s beauty”
I am considering myself a contemporary jewellery designer, born in Italy and lived in Paris before coming to London in 1996. I’ve trained as a silversmith and studied jewellery making, visual arts and paper craft at London Met University, City Lit College and Central St Martins College.
Nature is the main inspiration for me, from bones to flowers to twigs to sea urchins, my overriding aim is to combine imaginative design with solid craftsmanship to produce wearable, exciting and lasting pieces of jewellery.
I continually defining and exploring my style and way of working. Although predominantly working using artisan handcrafting methods I has also combined the traditional with 3D computer designs with spectacular results.
Texture is a big feature in my work and I am inspired by the visual and tactile changes that can be created on metal.
My collections are made up in limited number and one-off pieces. I also works on commission – both creating exquisite original pieces or transforming old, unused jewellery into new wearable creations.
I am also a Reiki and Crystal Healer and I use stones with healing properties in my work, and can recommend particular stones to individuals following a personal consultation.
I use Gold, Sterling and Fine Silver and precious and semi precious stones.
Bespoke design consultation also available, both creating exquisite original pieces or transforming old, unused jewellery into new wearable creations.
