The beautiful textures of sun-dried orecchiette, small by the hands of nonna Ester Fanny and the bigger by her daughter Maria Grazia were casted into amulets in gold plated recycled bronze. These are designed for singular or multiple stacking, to wear for love to follow always.

This collaboration with Âme Studio is inspired by the rich culture and colours of Puglia. The golden hues of summer and the warm smells of traditional Italian kitchen is what Amanti eludes, a collection made by lovers for lovers. The love for food, family, and sacred friendships passed down for generations; experienced by Melody Tan with this mother-daughter duo and family at their Masseria Potenti during the summer of 2019. There she experienced the unconditional love, heart and soul of Italy and its people, and especially the meaning of family. Amanti is a collection that is dedicated to the people she met during her journey who embraced her as one of their own.
Sun-dried orecchiette made by hand brought back from Puglia,were preserved into moulds by our Bali artisans to use for the casting process then lovingly designed as modern heirlooms. All of the jewellery in Amanti is made of 18k gold plated recycled bronze.
