The delicately hand-painted black and burnt-orange stripes of each bead make this necklace one of a kind - lovingly made in Italy.
Our striped necklace is named in honour of the great Carla Accardi, a Sicilian painter, feminist activist, and key figure in Italy’s avant-garde movement.
Celebrated as a leading artist in the field of abstract art, she was also a central figure in the struggle for gender equality in post-war Italy. In 1970, she co-founded the Rivolta Femminile (the Female Revolt) group together with fellow activists Carla Lonzi and Elvira Banotti. Rivolta Femminile was one of Italy’s first feminist groups with its own publishing house, that printed and disseminated contemporary feminist literature.
Hand-made, in Italy.

Disclaimer – The images of the Products on our site are for illustrative purposes only. All of our necklaces and earrings are hand-made, with components and beads that are produced using machinery or made by hand individually. As a result, the shapes, colours, and sizes of each item and/or component may differ slightly from the image shown above.
All Pietrasanta bijoux are created using the highest quality beads and components. Please follow these steps to ensure that your items are not damaged or compromised.
The wiring, clasps and studs may tarnish naturally over time. Tarnishing is not a fault, and to avoid this, you may use a lint-free cloth to clean the metals components of your bijoux. Similarly, as the metal components may bend under pressure, we advise that the bijoux be stored and transported in rigid boxes to avoid any external pressure compromising the item.
Please ensure that your jewellery avoids contact with perfumes, sprays, cosmetics, creams, water, and moisture, as it may lead to discolouration of the resin, and metal components. Similarly, please avoid extreme temperatures, humidity, sunlight, or spotlights, as this will compromise the quality and features of the bijoux. These factors may lead to a fault, and may be avoided if cared for as outlined above. Additionally, in the rare case that the finish of a component scratches off, this will be considered as natural wear and tear of the item due to the way in which the component was made, and not seen as a fault. With regards to general care of your bijoux, we advise that they be kept in a cool, dark and dry place, and be cleaned with lint-free cloths. Tarnishing or discolouration due to chemical contact is not a manufacturing fault.
We are not responsible for any damage due to negligence, and damage or faults caused by wear and tear are the responsibility of the owner.
