"Some pieces receive stones, others color, but all follow the principle of appearing as a tattoo…."
"When I was a teenager, my dream was to be a tattoo artist. I'd buy tattoo magazines and spend whole afternoons creating my own designs. Stimulated by my ability to draw, I decided to study visual communication as a career and I ended up as a jeweler.
"My purpose as jeweler was to treat a part of the body as a jewel, the beginning of the concept of tattoos in yellow gold. I began to use nylon threads and silicone to give lightness to my pieces, the impression that they were imprisoned in the body. Some years later, as the price of gold got higher and higher, I felt the need to create designs in a more accessible material and this was when I discovered silver. My first piece was a rose pendant that can be used both front and back and has an incredible effect. Some pieces bear stones, others color, but all follow the principle of appearing as a tattoo – an idea that I took the care to patent and register.
"I feel that recognition for my work is growing more and more, and I believe the conquest of a wider global market is an important step in my career. At the end of 2003, I was invited to participate in an exhibition on design trends in jewelry at Liberty in London – I was selected from among designers at a fashion event in Rio de Janeiro."

I can't believe how fast I got the order. I absolutely love your gorgeous jewelry. I especially love the beautiful tattoo armband but I also love the cupid's heart necklace and the happy fortunes necklace I received. I would love to see more of your jewelry, like bracelets and rings. Thank you so much.

Anna, your exotic rose pendant is stunning! I absolutely love it and do not take it off. You are an amazing artist. Keep up the good work! PLEASE make a matching (or similar) bracelet and earrings. I would love to have more pieces of your ""tattoo"" theme. I love your art!
I love the Beautiful Tattoo armband - I also wear it as a anklet. I just ordered the Rose Exotica pendant, can't wait to receive it. I wish I had been able to purchase the Orchid bracelet - please make more available! Please make more designs, I love the tattoo look - I haven't seen anything like your jewelry anywhere else!
I waited a long time for the Dragon pendant to come back in stock, and I'm glad it has. The piece is fantastic. The detail work is amazing. I've had so many people raving about the pendant and asking where they can get one!!!

Ola Ms. Vivacqua, I have just received your ""Rose Exotica"" pendant. It is a true work of art - and compliments my own body art as well. Your design is feminine yet makes a simple statement with a bold undertone. Thank you so much for your dedication to skill and your intuitive designs. I'm wishing you much luck in the future and will continue to view all of your additions through Novica. Con mucho gusto,
I recently received my Arch Angel Michael Necklace and I love it! This necklace was obviously inspired by the heavens and handcrafted with care. I wear him everyday now and I anticipate ordering more pieces from Anna in the future. Thank you Anna Paula Vivacqua and Novica for leading the way to a better world, one artisan and one day at a time!
