CAMI by Camilla

CAMI by Camilla

Camilla Franceschi recently began her career as an artisan, following the family tradition of jewelry and goldsmithing but approaching modern materials, such as resin, which allowed her to experiment with different techniques and innovative ideas. Always looking for new stimuli and contaminations, she mixes “poor” and precious elements in her works. The lines of jewelry designed by Camilla are inspired by nature, combining the elegance of geometric lines – dominant is the figure of the circle – with real floral elements.
