Modern poetry jewels: Leo Pizzo’s Butterfly Garden



The flutter of the butterfly brings a sense of airiness to Leo Pizzo’s Light Wings.

Using the fretwork technique, precious metal is meticulously removed until it resembles the refinement of lace. Leo Pizzo’s Butterfly Garden is a jewellery line celebrating the airiness and beauty of fluttering butterflies.

Available in rose, white or yellow gold and set with pavé diamonds, these new necklaces, bracelets and rings express all the grace and beauty of the butterfly in motion.

Celebrating the fluttering movement of these delicate creatures, Italian Jewellerer Leo Pizzo has truly captured the butterfly in flight. Delicate beating wings rise into the sky on necklaces and bracelets, while a selection of rings depict the butterfly at rest, as it settles for a moment, before taking off again.

Always in search of something new, Leo Pizzo’s Light Wings jewellery is crafted by the jeweller’s highly-specialized artisans in its workshop in Valenza, Italy. Simple and clean lines enhance the play on volume and proportion, resulting in a three- dimensional design that appears full and yet amazingly light.

“I know women love to wear jewellery that enhances their beauty, but at the same time it has to be practical and light,” Leonzio Pizzo told Baselworld. “To create this new collection I took inspiration from the feminine soul, so precious, impalpable, and which comes in a thousand shades, just like the wings of a butterfly.”

Light Wings range in the Animalia Collection is a tribute to the perfection of the animal and insects kingdom. Every jewel captures the unique beauty of their shapes and redraws them by seizing their deepest essence.
