FROM TEXTILE TO NOBLE METALS
For the past decade, Arielle de Pinto has evolved her own approach to jewelry and fabric methods by applying the traditional crochet technique to fine italian silver, gold and steel chains. We strive to create a new standard of classic in jewelry through tightly-oriented exploration. The brand is an ongoing study of materials - bending longstanding metalsmithing conceptions. The jewelry is timeless, but can morph over time- the complex woven structure changes, chains drip, loops lengthen, stitches can stretch - these characteristics are the bridge of experimentation, acceptance of imperfection, embracing the beauty of evolvement and maturity.
Change is accepted, disposability is not. The hybrid-technique is highly specialized, it cannot be mass-produced, it does not benefit from being demanded en masse- each piece remains unique. This is how these pieces are born - the continuation of their life depends on the wearer themselves.
