Giulia Barela’s Jewelry are wearable sculptures. She creates each piece of her collections, carving the wax which is to be cast in metal, in her Atelier in the old center of Rome, where there are also the Headquarters of the company GB DESIGN. Nature, light and emotions: these are the elements Giulia Barela carves the matter with. Even if they are hand crafted, Giulia Barela’s jewels are distributed in more than 40 retailers in Italy and abroad as well as in Yoox.com.
The Folietta collection is made of five pieces in two colors, bronze plated in 24K gold and in black rhodium. Three different designs of earrings are the synthesis of the characteristics of Giulia Barela’s jewelry: brightness and lightness marry motion and surprise. Paying a tribute to the work of Alexander Calder and his mobiles, Giulia Barela enhances the three-dimensional structure of her wearable sculptures through a delicate balancing act that multiplies the rays which enlighten the wearer while evoking a goddess of nature from the ancient mediteranean cultures. The collection includes also a cuff which embrace the wrist in a loving hug and a small ring.
