New York City - The lore of lost treasures guides Michelle Fantaci’s handmade jewelry. Each piece wears like a modern talisman; whether through historic motifs like Sicilian arrowheads and Spanish Coins, or protective themes including thorns, spikes and horns. After studying metalsmithing in Florence, Italy, her natural design evolution tended towards her now-signature style: sculptural, organic 14- and 18k-gold keepsakes delicately dotted with precious gems. Subtle yet rich in symbolism, pieces are meant to be layered, loved and lived in – a fine jewelry uniform for women wanting something precious without being too precious. Michelle is based in New York City.
