I'm Lucia, the designer and maker behind "Gioiellini" Designs (pronounced gio-ye-llee-ne), which means "little jewels" in Italian. Gioiellini Designs is a contemporary jewelry brand specializing in fine materials, handcrafted with simplicity and versatility in mind.
I grew up in Italy, surrounded by beautiful architecture and art. That's why I'm inspired by geometric shapes and symmetrical lines. I'm drawn to simple, sleek structures, tiny details and the occasional sparkle. I believe that less is more. As the great Leonardo da Vinci once said "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication". That is why my pieces are minimalist in nature, sleek and dainty, yet unique and sophisticated. I appreciate the classic and timeless patterns of Art-Deco style and I like to mix shapes and gemstones that are complementary to each other.
I work mostly with yellow and rose gold, as well as sterling silver. Most of my pieces are laser cut, therefore very light, almost weightless. I believe in creating pieces that are wearable, yet versatile enough to satisfy everyone's taste, using materials that are delicate and durable at the same time.
With our environment in mind, I strive to invest in sustainable materials and practices, and will keep doing so whenever possible. I work with suppliers who source their materials in the U.S., using sustainable practices. All sterling silver and gold fill used is sourced responsibly (ethically mined) or with the majority being composed of recycled materials. I participate in scrap recycling with unused and left-over metals.
Gioiellini Designs' jewelry boxes are made from 95% recycled materials, and are recyclable, less interior padding. As new sustainable practices become available in the world of jewelry design, I'm happy to embrace them.
My home studio is based in Seattle, WA. If you would like to see your favorite piece in person and try it on, check out my Events section to find out what local festivals and trade shows I'll be taking part in.
