Italian designer Milena was born into the family tradition of art and craft and graduated from the Graphic Design School in Turin. She then started traveling in Asia where her creative vision take formation while she observed skillful Balinese craftsmen working with silver and gold.
Melting the metals in a clay pot, then pulling the solidifying metal through tiny holes to create several meters of metal wire. The fine wire is then crocheted, following mathematical calculations in to achieve the shape for each design. This ancient crochet technique migrated from Gujarat through India to Indonesia during the time of incense trading in the 3rd Century AD.
Using a simple hook, the jewelry is hand crocheted, work that cannot be duplicated by machine. The metallic mesh is made with pure copper, brass and stainless steel, the silver and gold coatings and the oxidation process are executed by hand on an individual basis, just as it was in the ancient time.
