Chunky small earrings
Chunky is a line of jewellery that originated from a request for a unique piece. Here, too, Margherita used her favourite material, carving wax, but made the pieces using tools that are usually unrelated to jewellery making: a letter opener, an awl and a gouge. Instead of refining and masking the texture of this material, by choosing the ‘wrong’ set of tools Margherita makes the most of the specific characteristics of wax, highlighting its texture and plasticity.
N.B. As each piece is made as a one-off, each has its own shape and may differ slightly from the image on the e-shop, although the main features of each design will be retained (e.g. metal, plating, overall shape).
