Jewellery Designer Ornella Iannuzzi

What inspired you to become a jewellery designer?

The work of René Lalique while studying the Art Nouveau period.

What is your favourite piece of jewellery? (either made or purchased)

I actually love making rings so they are my favourite pieces of jewellery but I can’t select a particular one as this would be like answering the question which is your favourite child !

Which celebrity would you love to wear your jewellery and why?

I do not have a particular celebrity in mind really... They would have to be a sophisticated elegant lady who knows how to make an impact and stand out from the crowd. She would be a trendsetter who shares the motto that guides me through my work: Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail (Ralph Waldo Emerson).”

Out-with jewellery is there any other career that you would love to try?

I would have loved to be a musician. I always work with music!

What can we expect to see from you in the future?

The new collection “Rock it!” officially coming out next year, is derived from my ‘haute-couture’ collection “Les Exceptionnelles”, where I used natural gemstone crystals and rough minerals to create one-off pieces. These one-off pieces are to be mostly worn on special occasions only. With the new collection, I wanted to create high-end pieces of jewellery to be worn on an everyday basis but keep the distinctiveness of my work. Fascinated by Alchemy, I have focused the range on a particular type of crystallization: the Dodecahedron. Nude Jewellery will be the first store in London to stock the collection.

View both collections now in-store at Nude Jewellery...
