This elegant hair ornament is inspired by the octopus, or 'purpo' in Italian dialect. It seems that this marine creature has the most complex and sophisticated intelligence of the animal world. Since ancient times, the octopus was believed to have extraordinary aphrodisiac powers. This piece is handmade in Italy from recycled sterling silver, and is coloured with a natural process of oxidation with sulphur that, besides purifying, produces unique colours that are never the same.
The collection, Incredible Creatures, is an invite to look around and observe what’s happening to nature, understand her importance, explore her symbology and start loving her.
