Our favourite bracelet at Albert & Daphne! Made with love in Florence, Italy.
Pesci che volano produces bronze jewellery using the ancient lost-wax casting technique. The melted metal is drained in the cast which then remains in a cover of plaster after the liquefaction of the prototype. This sample moldelled in wax, remains lost and is not replicable in a series. This process in addition to the work entirely handmade, constitutes the essential value of each piece.
The choice of using bronze (a copper and tin alloy without nickel) is driven by not just aesthetics but also because of the low reaction risk of these materials.
