PER INCISO is a jewellery collection that investigates the traditional cameo jewellery production industry processes, to understand whether sustainable approaches might be able to reframe them for a contemporary marketplace. PER INCISO, means ‘to be engraved’ in Italian. The title of the collection refers to the labels that artisans apply to materials in the workshop: we don’t know the name of the material, only the applied the technique. So I have asked myself, can I update the aesthetics applying the same techniques to more sustainable materials? The project aims to re-establish the relationship between jewellery and the user by focusing on the holistic, innovatory yet sensual materiality within these objects. Cameo carving is a technique that has been developed in South of Italy thousands of years ago. This peculiar production is still aesthetically outdated, and most of the material involved is not sustainable.
