Blending fashion with art

  • • Angela is one of the pioneers of fashion jewellery in Italy
  • • Her colours and shapes express joy and enthusiasm
  • • She creates jewels for women, inspired by women

Angela Caputi has always been a pioneer. She opened her first atelier and bijouterie store in Florence in 1975, trying to reunite worlds which were traditionally very distant: the centuries-old world of Florentine craftsmanship and the excitement of fashion. In her craft, she experimented with innovative materials and revealed an exceptional sensitivity for the world of colour. But she is also one of the first examples of feminine entrepreneurship and all her collaborators are women. After many years – and after receiving international recognition for her work – the spirit of time and women are still her primary sources of inspiration, to create pieces that express enthusiasm and lust for life, creativity and freedom.
