Jewelry designer Caterina Zangrando creates pieces that resemble sculptural works of art that mix metals + materials into graphic wearable statements. Made in Italy, Caterina’s collections pay homage to the audacious + independent women who left an indelible stamp on her history + from the look of these pieces, these women must’ve been more than just incredible.
I love her ‘Swarovki Pearl Bolt Rings + Cuff’, where she juxtaposed the Swarovski pearl + crystals with metal. The ‘Plexiglass Sphere Clutch’ has that vintage feel, but it’s shape + transparency gives it that modern edge. With her ‘Mother-Of-Pearl Collar Necklace’, Caterina manages to create a 3-D effect on a would-be 2-D silhouette, mixing crystals + metal with mother-of-pearl. The designer’s ear cuffs are definitely standouts as their flat shape descends the ear.
