Orsola Mainardis was born and raised in the heart of Venice. For more than 20 years she has been creating jewellery with crystal and glass beads from Murano. Her jewellery appeals to the refined taste of young women and elegant ladies alike. They find satisfaction in the clever colour combinations, astute choice of materials and the long experience she breathes into all the creations that bear her bench mark.
Her collections offer a wide range – going from the expertly designed and realised gala jewellery to more light-hearted fundamental articles. Constantly sensitive to the changing trends in the world of fashion, every piece of her jewellery expresses her artistic flair and unmistakable style.
As a craftswoman Orsola Mainardis is always experimenting: the prototypes and evolving models in her atelier bear witness to the tension of the creative act – to the searching and constant evolution taking part through various stages as she gives birth to her new collections. Patience and perseverance lead the artist to achieve results of the highest quality, reflecting the excellence for which is renowned. Each stage of the work is performed by Orsola Mainardis herself, giving authenticity to all her accessories, each one unique for the unpredictable veining or mottling in the hand-made beads.
