Pigne

The ceramic pinecones that decorate each balcony on the island of Ortigia, symbolise the immortality that has carried this city through centuries of conquest. For my jewel, I took the outline of these pinecones and made it an open golden lattice, wherein I could occasionally set diamonds. As pendant or earrings, they remind me of balconies throughout the Emerald Isle of Sicily.
