Eastern lights

  • • Roberta opened her Bottega in Otranto in 2016
  • • She creates pieces in bronze, brass and silver
  • • Her jewellery is a tribute to the values of her land

Roberta Risolo’s creations reflect the skills of her hands, the delicacy of her soul and the values of her land. Curious and passionate about jewellery ever since she was a child, she spent several years in Vicenza, one of the capitals of goldsmithing in Italy, to learn techniques from the masters, but then she felt the urgency to develop her own language. She found it in Otranto, her hometown in southern Italy, which is not just a town full of arts and history, but also the most eastern town in Italy: a gateway onto the sea, open to the rest of the world. Her pieces tell stories of brotherhood and dialogue between people and cultures and all of them stem from a real emotion that she wants to transmit.

Abbracci Ring

Exclusive ring made of brass with green patina and green agate, entirely designed and handcrafted in Italy by Roberta Risolo with the lost wax micro fusion technique. An “abbraccio” (Italian for hug) is able to make people and communities come closer. The most beautiful words can be expressed through a simple gesture, as primordial as vital.

Giglio

One

Earrings with pendants in yellow gold-plated brass, with amethyst. It’s an exclusive jewel, entirely designed and handcrafted in Italy by Roberta Risolo with the lost wax micro casting technique. The inspiration for this jewel are the dry stone walls, a typical rural architecture in the Salento region. Matter releases its own hidden essence: a “back to the roots” message.
