A stunning and bold necklace. This piece, named Subra by the master goldsmith from Rome Andrea Cagnetti, known as Akelo, uses techniques and tools that have been practised in goldsmithing for thousands of years. Drawing inspiration from Etruscan, Greek, and Roman jewellery, Akelo’s designs are imbued with both antiquity and modernity. This magnificent piece uses the ancient technique of granulation to render a bird between lotus petals. Akelo’s work can be seen in the museum collections of The Vatican, the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, The Newark Museum, and others.
