"Through this course I discovered my passion, and my future. I have been designing jewelry ever since."
" Oi, I was born in Rio de Janeiro on 23 December 1971. I liked to paint a lot when I was a child, so I took painting classes, and when I grew older, I kept up with my painting but I graduated in law. Back then, I really did not like what I was doing, I wanted a change and do something different, related to art.
"One day while I was reading the newspaper searching for a job, I saw an advertisement for a jewelry course in Italy, for Italian descendants. I am an Italian descendant, so I decided to apply for it. I took the test, I passed it and I was so happy! I went to Abruzzo and took my jewelry course, which I loved very much. Through this course I discovered my passion, and my future. I have been designing jewelry ever since. When I returned to Brazil I took other jewelry courses in Rio, at Senai.
"I love flowers, and in my beloved country, there are so many wonderful flowers. I try to include them in most of my designs, so I often go to the botanical garden for inspiration.
"I participated in the Panorama Carioca project, where I had to create a piece related to Rio de Janeiro and its culture. I loved working on this project, for which I designed a collection related to the Vitoria Regia (Queen Victoria) flower that blossoms in Brazil. This is now one of my favorite collections.
"I hope Novica clients like my pieces, I try to communicate originality and I draw inspiration from Brazilian nature, which is amazing."
