Francesca Villa
For Francesca Villa, an insatiable wanderlust results in a collection of unusual objets trouvés that she finds along the way. Anything from vintage Venetian beads, antique French glass buttons, or a rare talisman from Mali can form the basis of a ring, necklace or bracelet in her eponymous fine jewellery collection. By framing curios such as the vintage toy soldier trinkets that she found in a Parisian flea market into a pair of 18k rose gold hoop earrings, or setting a pin from an American electoral campaign into the heart of a ring and adding precious metals and gemstones around it, she gives each treasure new life as well as its own unique story to tell.
