Collection: Layers of Nostalgia

In October 2020 we finally travelled to Italy after long months we were forced to remain in Malta by the pandemic.

The emotions elicited by that journey were strong. Besides the indicible joy of seeing our families, there was a delicate feeling, not so easy to understand, linked to the atmosphere. The light was softer, the air clean and just a little crispy in the morning. We travelled by train and had a good amount of time to enjoy the view, took pictures and draw some quick sketches of beautiful layers of hills fading in the disance.

But it wasn't only that. The smell of the must just after the grape harvest, the scent  smoke coming from the wood stoves in the evening, the light morning fog in the valley ... in a word, nostalgia. A sweet, delicate longing for our small village in Umbria, for the beams and the fireplace, for landscape and the autumn colors.

When we came back to Malta, we chose some images and decided to start a small collection of unique pieces called LAYERS of NOSTALGIA. After the first pieces we had to change our plans and the project waited in box until last October, when we decided to carry it on.

The pendants are completely different from our usual jewelry and we have used some techniques we have set aside for a while. They are lovely and required a lot of work. We have chosen different shapes and sizes, including a couple of tiny and playful ones we have named "Scherzo" 1 and 2 using the western classical music term for a small, joyful part of a larger work. All the pieces reproduce or are inspired by real landcapes of Central Italy, mostly Umbrian ones. Only one of the smaller pendants is inspired by the Warragamba Dam Lake, from a photo sent to us by very dear member of our family living in Australia.

On the back of the bigger pieces we have imprinted a date, either October 2020, or 2020/21 depending from when the pendant was made.

We hope you will love the Layers of Nostalgia as much as we do 🧡🤍
