I’m Chiara Pignotti, Italian artist and jewellery maker based in Gothenburg.
Lost wax casting, one of the oldest metal forming methods known, is the technique I use for shaping the silver in to jewellery. I enjoy to combine jewellery, illustration and printing techniques for creating my pieces.
Meditation is also an important inspiration for me to spontaneous creativity and the connection between hand, mind and spirit.
I have worked as art teacher and university researcher, focusing on jewellery making as a personal artistic expression and as a heritage of cultural symbolism.
