Jewellery designer and researcher Carla Riccoboni pioneered self-production in the 1980’s and is considered one of the “masters” of the Italian contemporary jewellery scene.

Signs, rhythm and calligraphy make up the formal foundations her jewels are based on, shaped into sophisticated geometric sequences such as the ALPHABET chains, or aimed at a return to repertoires from the past, such as the VENEZIA and MADREFORME collections.

Her multiples, created mainly using mechanical and digital techniques, are currently exploring the expressive potential of moulding, following the discovery of some 2500 moulds dating back to the period after the Great War, part of the history of the Vicenza goldsmith’s industry.
