Feature Designer

In Tiziana's Etsy profile, she says that the birth of her son coincided with the birth of her shop Fairie Bling, which has the subtitle - "Dedicated to all of you who still believe". She rejoices in her young son's belief in magic and fairies in the woods.

Tiziana is Italian born but is now based in San Diego. She works with natural materials such as wool, leather and gemstones. She recently created a summer collection of wire wrapped jewelry inspired by the Island of Capri, Italy such as her Dreaming of Capri gemstone and copper necklace. Her confident uses of colour and varied materials are evident. However, what caught my eye were her wool flower jewelry for Tiziana is an eco artisan.

Her Dangling Red Roses lariat cum choker (above left) is my favourite. It is made from recycled 2-ply cashmere and adorned with faceted amber glass in the middle of the flowers. The flowers are on leather and the necklace wraps around the neck finishing lariat style in the front. A charming design for those who love romantic designs. Another upcycled wool flower necklace features pear-shaped turquoise gemstones in a circle (above right). A single faceted yellow-olive chalcedony dangles on super soft hide. Note her unusual way of attaching the headpin to the leather.

Yes, Tiziana, I still believe in the magic of beautiful handmade creations.
