"The Elisabetta Ricciardi Jewelry Collection is a wearable mosaic of Ricciardi's life, travel and loves -- works that draw from a childhood in Napoli and her family home in medieval Toscany as much as they do Classical Antiquity and her life as a mother and artist."
Ricciardi's experiences and travels, from Toscany and the Mediterranean to her home in Pioneer Valley in Massachusetts, have shaped her approach to her jewelry. Inspired by the small treasures in a wooden box she cherished as a child, Ricciardi creates artisan, hand made jewelry that reflects her childhood experiences and her dynamic life as an artist.
Ricciardi travels to Toscany several times a year to oversee the final crafting of her designs. The Ricciardi collection is hand made to her exact specifications using hand-painted glass, crystals and fabric inspired by the elegance and magic she encountered as a child, offering a timelessness to all her pieces of original jewelry.
