The photography of a birdnest which is delicately holded between two hands symbolises love and care for something fragile and valuable, such as the jewellery that this small studio creates as aluxury objects to be wear.
The human sign in the center of the nest was inspired by a 10000 years old petroglyphs found in a rock carving in a cave of Val Camonica in Italy, and is engraved in each jewels that this small goldsmith atelier is creating.
Craftsmanship, care, and human relations are the DNA of this small Goldsmith atelier in Basel, Switzerland.
