Her brand explores human behaviours in our contemporary area through the creation of small creatures and animal finely handcrafted that inspire a sense of magic and humour.
Her obsession for collaging collected vintage elements discovered during treasure huntings in flea markets and in her many travels lead there to creates jewellery pieces which become human tales, giving a glimpse about death, misery, compulsions, and the ephemeral.
Merging aesthetics from Victorian to Art Deco to contemporary, her jewellery pieces become timeless creations. Each piece is handmade in recycled gold, silver and precious gemstones in her London based studio.
Aurelie Dellasanta is a London based award-winning jewellery designer who grew up at the Swiss-French border next to Geneva. Her fascination for jewellery began during her childhood when she was ornamenting herself with any shiny things she could find and collect.
