Alice Cicolini creates playful jewels, often working in enamel and with a rainbow of coloured stones. Her pieces are like exquisite candies that you just can’t resist coming back to time and again.
Alice’s first collection told stories of the silk route, drawing upon discoveries made during her time spent living in India, working as a multidisciplinary curator. Working with one of the last Jaipuri Meenakari trained in the enamel traditions of Persia (his craft has been passed down through family generations over 200 years) Alice was able to create modern antiquities which call upon icons, patterns and forms found along the silk route. The pattern for each ring is hand carved on a miniature scale, and then hand painted in vitreous enamel. She continues to expand upon this timeless collection today, combining this distinctly hand-painted enamelling technique with hand carved ebony and gemstones.
