I come from a small village near the sea on the Northern-East side of Sicily. In that area, there is not much tourism or activities related to crafts or handmade markets. So starting an e-commerce activity seemed to be a good opportunity to get my uncle’s work to know and share a little bit of Sicilian mood even many miles away.
For more than thirty years my uncle has been dedicated himself to jewels using different materials and techniques, from leather to copper wire. Whilst during last years, love for woodworking and for the surrounding sea has certainly got a stronger influence on him. Initially, he has been made some pretty fridge magnets while later he has been created wall and desk decorations, inspired from the nearby Aeolian Islands, in particular, the isle of Salina.
Concerning myself, well, I do not consider myself a crafter. I spent most of my life studying and now I am a librarian. I had a great chance to learn from my uncle how to make crafts and jewelry. All started when he gave me some colored fabric yarns, suggesting to make some necklaces. From October 2012, I never stopped to hand sew necklaces.
In this blog I will tell you the story of our creations and what surrounds me.
