Giuliana Mancinelli Bonafaccia discovered her interest in jewellery while she was working and studying architecture and interior-design. A passion that is the result of a strong commitment and knowledge, that soon leads her to attend some gemology classes at the IGI institute of Antwerp, specializing in “Colored Stones Identification,” “Colored Stones Grading and Evaluation” and “Pearls Grading and Evaluation.” Her jewelry line was born in 2007 while Presqu*ile was open in March 2010 in Rome. It’s an eclectic and multifunctional space, it displays singular creations, unique or limited edition pieces that exemplify the ideals of meticulous research balanced between tradition and innovation. A place where art, design, fashion and jewellery coexist in the spirit of exclusivity. Giuliana’s approach is far away from any classification or stereotype. Her work becomes unique thanks to her continuous exploring and experimenting with different materials. Each particular piece is characterized by an unconventional and unique choice which is revealed with the use of fine materials such as galuchat, stingray leather, typical of the Louis XV era.
Hyparhedra, a capsule collection made of rings, bracelets, necklaces, is inspired by “Vorkurs” a study on paper by Josef Albers at the Bauhaus in 1927. As to students was asked to create complex structures using only a raw material, simple, unusual as paper so the designer creates unique pieces, jewels sculptures and iconic pieces. A strong architectural connotation that gives to this capsule collection, a strong connotation and unique imprint. For the one of a kind woman that likes the conceptual side of life.
