Brand Concept

marzo

The jewelry pieces this designer creates are more than just fashion: they're portable works of art. Wearing them as jewelry instigates communication between the wearer and the outside world. This creates new values, which imagine and express an emotionally rich interest within everyday life.
The act of decorating oneself has a long history, dating from prehistoric times. This primitive instinct cannot be separated from our daily lives even today, and has an important meaning.
The artist's main production method is lost-wax casting, and she also uses metal carving and casting techniques. By freely expressing reflected light, the shine of a mirror face, and slim and supple curves, she confronts the characteristics of the metal and fully draws out their appeal. Above all, her detailed craftsmanship produces a light feel similar to lace. MARZO https://www.marzo-jewelry.com/

Jewelry expressing translucent butterfly and cicada wings through silver has a light appearance and feel, carefully designed to be large yet easy to wear.
