VALENZA - ITALY
As a little girl growing up in Italy Chiara loved animals and kids' illustrations. With a fun and lively personality she was always looking to make everyone around her happy through her stories and her jokes. She later combined her humor with her passion for illustration and design to create a single piece of jewelry, essentially asking the question, 'Can high-end jewelry be fun and quirky, with a sense of humor?'
Animal-Inspired Fine Jewelry
