In my research art and ecology are connected

simone frabboni logo

Contemporary jewelry is a way to wear art in daily life.
My work is based on handcraft tradition
and ecological materials,
like local and recycled wood,
eco-resins and natural materials .
My work is also my way of life.

Have a look at my shop to see the latest collections available and at the blog to follow our work.
