An alchemist of jewellery

Rather like an alchemist in his laboratory, Simone Mencherini elaborates on the techniques of the great Florentine goldsmiths to create jewellery that are both unique and timeless. In his hands, emeralds, diamonds, aquamarines, and sapphires are transformed into voluptuous serpents, sea urchins, multicoloured flowers and mythological forms. Precious gold weaves between the stones like a common thread uniting Renaissance splendour and the art of contemporary Italian goldsmithing.
