Monica Castiglioni, a native of Milan and graphic designer, photographer and jewelry maker of more than 30 years. Castiglioni's progressive, almost exclusively bronze pieces are reminiscent of sculptures thanks to a gold smithery course she took with jewel designer and sculptor, David De Paoli. The level of craftsmanship is evident with each piece of jewelry reflecting the hands of an artist who has true ownership of her artistry and can't stop creating.
Many of Castiglioni's pieces are inspired by re-imaginations of sights she takes in on a daily basis. A frequent source of inspiration for Castiglioni are pistils - the dynamic, reproductive part of the flower. Castigliani recalled looking at a pistil under a microscope and seeing an "infinite chaos" and within that initial chaos was a beautiful, geometric source of order and balance.
The pieces are made from bronze or silver often with moonstones, garnets or jade. What's important to know about bronze is that its a living material, it interacts with your skin's PH and changes its appearance in line with your mood and your health making each piece truly unique to every person and moment.
Castiglioni understands the indomitable beauty that comes with harmonizing science and art together and our designer at Kempton & Co., Fiona, has been personally collecting Monica Castiglioni jewelry for years for that very reason.
