MY NAME IS PAOLA FAVATÀ, I AM AN ITALIAN ARCHITECT AND A STUDIO JEWELER.
THE IDEA AT THE CORE OF MY WORK IS TO GIVE VOICE TO THAT CHILDLIKE JOY WE ALL HAVE EXPERIENCED IN PLAYING AND SOCIALIZING WHEN WE WERE KIDS.
We all remember it, and we all try to relive it through our friendships, hobbies, or social life, no matter how old we are. But we rarely can capture the purity of those children's hearts. In my work I try to shape that innocence and joy, that candor. And I am happy when I can communicate it, because for a moment I see a sparkle in the eyes of someone else that, like me, is living that same emotion. I like to see my jewels like toys, that can gift a smile, or a feeling of happiness at the sight or at the touch. Sometimes I make them mobile so that you can twiddle with them, as a child would do. My mixed media are inundated with thousands of tiny flowers and geometric symbols, and so are my tapestries. If my works have spirit and are able to communicate a good emotion, then I have succeeded.
