Lucia Antonelli has always been interested in art. She graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology in 1967 but found her passion for wearable art lied in beads not fabric. These one of a kind pieces are incredibly detailed and fun to wear!
"My work evolved in many unexpected ways and I found myself interested in executing only one of a kind neck pieces with as much detail as possible. The more intricate, the better!"
"I am self-taught and prefer executing all of my pieces by hand. By utilizing antique beads, talismans, and ritualistic objects from other cultures, it is my love to create objects of wearable art that have a timeless quality connecting the past and the future. Ultimately I wish to touch and to move the spirit of others through my work."
