Silvia Valenti

Vollständiges Profil des Künstlers

Trained in Italy and abroad as historian and art critic, she graduates „Maestro d‘arte orafa“ at the Pietro Selvatico of Padua and takes the contemporary jewellery road firstly under Alberto Zorzi guide, then as an independent author. Her research is based on the study of colors and natural forms which she accomplishes using the ancient technique of cuttlefish bone casting. Silvia creates unique pieces embedded in silver structures almost always oxidised to hide the metal preciousness. Gems and crystals still in their mather stone go with the textures she carves by hand from the cuttlefish bones.
