Vedova Nera Brooch
This Vedova Nera Brooch is a spectacular oxidized sterling silver brooch with a faceted black onyx. This incredible spider is refinished, bent and signed by the designer's own hands. Coloured with a natural process of oxidation done with sulphur that, besides purifying, produces unique colours that are never the same.
This is the first piece that started the collection and was inspired by a dear friend and by the work of Louise Bourgeois. For me the spider, in this case a black widow, resembles something that is inside of us and can scare or attract others. It's a modern talisman that attracts the good that is in ourselves. It is a symbol of female powers.
