In search of the second beauty

  • • Myriam creates contemporary jewellery with a sculptural quality
  • • She is fascinated by combining unexpected materials
  • • Her workshop is in a former pasta factory, now a contemporary art venue

Born in Milan and trained as a graphic designer first and fashion designer later, Myriam Bottazzi started creating contemporary jewellery for prestigious fashion houses, but she soon understood that the crazy rhythms of the fashion industry left little space for more in-depth work and experimentation. Moving to Rome gave her the possibility to open a workshop and devote herself full time to the design and creation of her jewellery. Attracted by the inherent qualities of materials, unusual objects and techniques, her creative process is driven by her search for a “second beauty”, the one that strikes the viewer's inner self first, their eyes second.

Fiamme Di Corallo necklace

This necklace was created with brass, iron wire and sequins, and features an adjustable lace closure. The sequin is Myriam’s chosen material of experimentation, a ductile material in her hands. Deprived of its dazzling expression and inherent character, the sequin become a means to reach a deeper beauty with refined imperfections.

Strass Volanti choker necklace

This choker necklace was handcrafted with silver plated brass chain, iron wire, sequins and vintage rhinestones. Myriam’s contemporary jewellery is born from her need to find a personal version of beauty, asymmetrical and imperfect. Using imperfect circles and squares, ragged, worn and repeated, she builds in the imagination different forms of nature.
