Per Fabrica is a jewellery collection investigating the imaginary of the coral jewellery production, to understand how innovative materials can reframe it for the contemporary marketplace.

The aesthetics of the collection is inspired by the sphere, the most difficult cut in the coral production. The Fabrica is a specific range of techniques applied to the raw coral in order to get cabochon, spheres and findings. Torre del Greco (Naples) is the world centre for the production of coral findings, that are exported mainly to China.

Every year the workshops in Torre del Greco Produce almost 3000 tons of semi-finished products in coral.

Per Fabrica focuses on the re-introduction of a by-product from the food industry, the lobster shell, in the jewellery industry. Every year more than 8000 tons of shellfish waste is thrown away, and very little can be done with it. Can design be a mean to re-contextualize this material?

Using an innovative yet secret process, developed with the Lobster Institute and the University of Maine, the shell is turned into seven colours, that recall the main coral production centres: Capri, Pompeii, and Volcano, that symbolize the spirit of the Italian craftmanship projected into the future.

The collection is made with Lobster Shell, bio-resin, Sterling Silver and 18k Gold Plated Sterling Silver.
