This necklace is part of a collaborative project with a perfume creator and a creative writer exploring the subject of fragmented memories. The collaboration found its physical space in an exhibition during Milan design week in April 2023. Each piece of jewellery is associated with a short story and a scent that all together create new narratives.
The Briolette Memory necklace is associated with this scent and story:
Geranio olio essenziale
Le primavera matura dal balcone
si specchiava nelle lenti unte di mia nonna,
indugiando su pepite
di patate sfrigolanti.
The ripe spring from the balcony
used to mirror in my grandmother’s greasy lenses,
lingering on pieces
of sizzling potatoes.
