Inspired by the sacred architecture and patterns found along the Silk Road, spanning from Northern China to Turkey, Alice Cicolini incorporates the ancient shapes, rich colors, and traditional motifs into her jewelry collection. Her use of rare and nearly extinct techniques, like Kundan and Meenakari, employed by skilled artisans is a large part of her allure and success. Meenakari, for example, is an antiquated method of carving an intricate design into either gold or silver and then filling it with enamel. Alice Cicolini’s jewelry is truly a magical combination of artistry and craftsmanship at the highest level.
