Biography

Her studies at the Art School and The Academy of Fine Arts of Brera in Milan Italy, have been crucial to implement a “painting” vision in the way of conceiving the jewels.The craft training takes place in a small shop around the 80s. The burin technique becomes the pillar of the way of reinterpreting the jewel, which is engraved with a personal and contemporary style.
The passion for jewellery animates the soul of Maddalena in an endless quest towards expressiveness which makes the discipline itself a language that ferries elsewhere.

Work

Through this ancient technique, slow and meditative, Maddalena reveals numerous emblems.They represent the thoughts, brought into being by her past, and which migrate into grooves on the surface of the metal mirror. They are signs which are pending, dreamed. The theme is related to the Myth, but the Myth is only an pretext to conduct to an inner and deeper dialogue. On the mirroring surfaces appears then the typical chisel of the burin, made of soft signs and light and dreamed as if they were small enigmatic “frames”.
