JEWELLERY DESIGNERS – Francesca Villa in conversation as part of Sarabande’s INSPIRED series

Within the world of luxury jewellery, Italian designer Francesca Villa celebrates objets trouvés – discarded relics that have their value rediscovered.
Working with peculiar artefacts that hold sentimental and historical importance, Francesca brings new-found life into these relics by embedding precious gems onto their surface.
Finding these items within the corners of antique shops, flea markets and miscellaneous spaces, there is an unparalleled precious intimacy to Francesca’s jewellery.
Francesca will be in conversation with journalist Fiona McCarthy on October 12, talking about her work, inspiration and business.

Through her limited-edition pieces, Francesca uses the past as a source of inspiration and creates a micro-universe surrounding the jewellery.
As her clients are left in awe of the jeweller’s craft and her passion for storytelling, you cannot help but be engrossed with the lost history of each piece.
