Milano. Vitti Ferria Contin has always been artistic and has always collected everything that caught her eye. While visiting a bead stall at the souk in Istanbul, a friend of hers suggested that she should makes jewellery. For fun, she took on the challenge and since then, hasn’t stopped making fun pieces with every type of material and object that she can find. She makes each piece herself; she is so prolific that her new showroom, which is entirely painted in silver, is already packed with the most eclectic pieces in every shape, style and size. Her aim is to help the less fortunate, since 2005, when she donated her bijoux to Airc, cancer research, at a charity benefit in Sardegna, she has never stopped supporting a worthy cause.
Vitti Ferria Contin: Via Boccaccio 21 – Milan – Tel: +39 02 48012941 – the showroom is open in the afternoons.

Note: this cascade of cultured pearls, little roses and gold metal leaves are Vitti’s best selling pair of earrings. They are very, very flattering to the face.
