Altara Necklace


A necklace made of hand-painted 'animalier' spheres and complemented by long oval-shaped beads in dark-brown - lovingly hand-made in Italy. 

Our 'animalier' necklace is named after the wonderful Edina Altara, the Sardinian born artist, illustrator, ceramicist and fashion designer.

Altara had a multi-faceted career as an artist, which ranged from painting traditional Sardinian scenes, illustrating covers of high-fashion magazines, to decorating children's books and toys. She placed great significance on the fine details within her works, inviting viewers to engage in the subtleties of her portrayals to address issues such as female identity and the fluidity of gender.

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.
