My Raffles

Nicola Volpini

He studied in Florence at the Istituto d’arte di Porta Romana di Firenze, Jewellery Faculty, and at ISIA, where he graduated with a final dissertation on a snowboard joint to which he owes the the Compasso d’oro Giovani Prize he has won. His first professional experiences in fashion led him to work with Ermanno Scervino and La Nouvelle bague, where he worked for 7 years as jewelry designer. In 2000, he set up his freelancer activity, which in the years led him to collaborate continuously with the following companies: Damiani, Cartier, Salvatore Ferragamo, Akris, Celine, Maison Margiela and Jil Sander, dealing with both fashion and jewelry. Curiosity and the observation of the phenomena affecting the esthetic perception are the two element that inspire his style. The fusion between handcraft and technological innovation carry a highly personal poetic key: full spaces contrast the empty ones, movement contrasts what is static, and the esthetic research is in constant evolution.
