Siss’s jewelry designs transform into a second skin of light and gold for the wearer. Her meticulously handmade, sculptural rings, earrings, and brooches interlace the protective connotations of a bird’s nest with the anatomy of the human body. She sees her hands-on process as an extension of herself and the results an extension of the wearer. Her Nests can be displayed as a sculpture when taken off. Each piece is unique and signed. Born in Bologna, Sissi (Daniela Olivieri) is an Italian artist who lives between London and Bologna. Her practice engages the body and includes a wide range of media, including performance, painting, drawing, installation, and video.
