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.

All of our jewellery is created by sourcing the highest quality Italian-made beads, and carefully hand-made in Milan. We want the best for you so please see the steps below to best take care of your Pietrasanta jewellery.
The wiring, clasps and studs may tarnish naturally over time - cleaning your jewellery with a lint-free cloth & storing it in a dark spot can avoid this. Avoid contact with perfumes, sprays, cosmetics, creams, humidity and extreme temperatures, as it might damage the resin and metal parts. When travelling with your jewellery, it's a good idea to store it in a rigid box to avoid external pressures from damaging your statement pieces. All of our jewellery comes with a branded pouch and presentation box to help you take the best care of your jewellery.
