M. Grazia – Gioielli Unici is the brand of Maria Grazia Schinelli, a highly skilled Sardinian craftswoman. In her laboratory in Cagliari she creates crocheted or embroidered and wound rings, bracelets, necklaces and other refined bijoux from precious textiles such as velvet, brocade and silk but combined with other unusual materials such as lava stone from Etna and enamelled copper. Her constant research, innovative techniques and the unusual application of her skills means that her works embody tradition, contemporaneity and design to create much more than a simple accessory but a precious object with a much deeper significance, inspired by the history, colours, and traditions of Sardinia and the Mediterranean.

Maria Grazia Schinelli is a young Sardinian goldsmith who creates delightful, crocheted jewellery. Copper wire woven with Saint Lucy's eye motifs are testimony to the power of Sardinian tradition. In her hands, traditional and popular craftsmanship is transformed into something magical that tells of beaches and the wind, of the sea and the vibrant colours of Sardinia’s wildflowers. With her non-precious materials such as gilded nickel-free copper or silver wire she creates jewellery with a contemporary design and inspired by these elements. To wear one of Maria Grazia's creations transforms the simple accessory into a symbol of the soul.
