Jewels of contemporaneity. Textured, formal experimentation for jewellery reinventing itself
COLLANEvrosi is a100% made in Italy brand using non conventional materials, not used in the classic jewel world. Natural elements like wood and sea sponge get a new perspective, inverting their use. Behind COLLANEvrosi you have Lodovica Fusco, Jewellery designer from Trieste. While studying Discipline of the performing arts she gained experience working with a jewellery designer specialised in glass; after a few internships in the clothing world she decided to create her own jewellery line. Fundamental for her project, set up in 2012, is the ongoing search for “different” material giving impulse to developing a contemporary yet artisan design.

Q&A with COLLANEvrosi
Your town. And three words to describe it.
Trieste: irresistible, blunt, contradictory.
Three words to describe your projects.
Eclectic, personal, narrative.
Today blue, tomorrow it’ll have changed.
When you drink seawater by mistake. Salty.
Antique, modern or contemporary?
The most precious item you own?
Lots, always linked to important moments and people met.
Where is design going?
I believe there is return to giving importance to a product’s craftsmanship as well as the initial prototype. I believe people are once again feeling the need to know and tell an object’s story.
Where are you going?
I’m lucky enough to do what I love every day. I’ll keep on doing it trying to grow as much as possible.
Three words to describe Italy.
Difficult! Beautiful beyond all doubt, not valorised, difficult.
If not in Italy, where?
Scandinavian countries, New York, Japan...
If you’ve got an idea develop it straight away, instantly. Tomorrow it would be different.
