A handsome pair of earrings. These earrings, named Naos by the master goldsmith from Rome Andrea Cagnetti, known as Akelo, use 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. These earrings feature delicate filigree work and Akelo’s technique of “fine dust” granulation applied to curved gold sheets evocative of ancient craftsmanship. Akelo’s work can be seen in the museum collections of The Vatican, the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, The Newark Museum, and others.
