Handmade bronze ring.
For the past 20 years, Elena Dosio and her team of designers and craftsmen have been creating one-of-a-kind bronze and silver jewellery pieces with a timeless taste for essential forms.
The Pesci Che Volano collection features an extensive selection of statement rings, earrings, bracelets and pendants entirely handmade in a small atelier in Florence using the ancient lost-wax casting method. The raw, unpolished metals used to make the jewellery give them a rustic, antique feel while their intricate details bear some resemblance to Etruscan works.
The name Pesci Che Volano (‘flying fish’), was inspired by a triptych altarpiece painted by Dutch draughtsman Hieronymus Bosch, where human figures ride flying fish. This image is a metaphor for the triumph of fantasy over reality and a constant reminder of the need to set our imagination free.
Pesci Che Volano’s jewellery is created using the ancient lost-wax method – a creative technique dating back over 5000 years and still used in design production today. It involves several steps, from carving a design out of wax through to filling, grounding and sandblasting each jewellery piece into a distinctive and ornate design. Unique symbols are then hand carved into each individual piece while irregularities and imperfections ensure no two are exactly the same.
Once found its wearer, each piece will take on its own lustre and individual patterns and markings depending on who wears them, making the jewellery as much a part of their story as that of its creators. The skin’s natural oils help maintain its deep, rich colour and gloss over time.
