FLOEMA is the new handmade jewelry brand created by Valentina Caprini, artist, goldsmith and teacher based in Florence. The name originates from the idea of the plants vascular tissue, which conveys their life force from the roots to the branches and brings flowers and fruits to life. Valentina’s inspiration comes from her feminine tailoring roots, employing this background into her work, creating new dialogues between threads and metal. Through a long manual process, she weaves thin pure gold and silver wires and she solders them employing the ancient Italian Filigree, learned in Campo Ligure, one of the major places in the world to study this technique. Valentina experiments endless possibilities of the precious metals twisting, in order to create minimal and wearable pieces, perfect on any occasion. Each FLOEMA piece of jewelry is unique and top quality, created through high standards in a small eco-friendly workshop.
