Combining inspiration from Ettore Sottass's famous Memphis Design Movement of the 1980's and the fine gold thread weaving of Benares, Alice Cicolini has created a pair of bold, graphic and ultra-elegant earrings. The tops are 14K yellow gold discs meticulously hand-painted with black lacquer and set with shimmering ruby pavé. Anchoring the composition are globes covered in black lacquer to reveal circles of gold capped at the bottom with ruby cabochons.

London - Inspired by the sacred architecture and patterns of the Silk Route, the hand-made jewelry collection of Alice Cicolini is created in India by one of the last Jaipuri meenakari. Using ancient Persian enamel techniques and traditions, the stunning, meticulously crafted collection exudes a extraordinary, artful style. Alice Cicolini's far-reaching talents include publishing books on British Dandyism, acting as curator and creative commissioner and researching for Central St. Martins where she remains closely involved with Indian craft and design.
