Find your own story.
Italian jewelry artist Anna Porcu grew up among the suggestive Tuscan hills, surrounded by the region’s historic and cultural legacy, all well as art and antiques which her antiquarian parents collected.
This artistic synthesis enlighted Anna’s creative spirit. Her expertise in history and her passion for ancient traditions, including cameo carving, align with a visionary concept of beauty, an eclectic personality, and a wanderer’s heart.
Enchanting Pienza is her artistic headquarter. Anna works on marvelous creations in her world's first storefront, right inside her parents’ suggestive antiques shop. She travels far and wide, discovering special cameos, and being invited to participate in international events and Trunk Shows.DISCOVER
Made in Italy, made by hand
Anna Porcu travels the world in search of marvelous antique cameos in shell, amber, agate and lava. A real journey through time and space, with Italy as its destination. The Tuscan countryside is the setting where the ancient craft of carving gains a modern voice, though contemporary jewelry.
In her lab, Anna works at cameo reinterpretation, handsetting their enchanting timelessness and leather strength side by side, following a creative flow that blends together new visions and the aereternal values of Italian handicraft.
Each one-of-a-kind piece is an unrepeatable tribute to an exceptional savoir-faire, a sublime encapsulation of the artisanal heritage: Anna’s équipe of master craftsmen expertly transform every cameo into a modern work of art. Anna still works with the masters who saw her growing up, the same ones who worked with her parents.
Their hands infuse in ancient stones all the stories they have witnessed. Each phase of the process requires more than technical skill: it’s all about finding an ethereal balance between passion and expertise, creativity and rigour, devotion to traditions and the courage to reinvent them.DISCOVER
