Moneta NecklaceCélestine By Zoé
The Moneta necklace is part of the Caffarella collection. It is composed by a yellow bronze pendant and a fine sterling silver chain.
This necklace is inspired on the antique jewel made with local coins.
Zoé likes to think about a world in which the money could be made like this, where the value is represented by nature and the human relation with it.
The moneta which means “coin” in italian, is made of bronze and has a fine and delicate circular herb print. It is thread on the silver chain through a little ring on the top of the coin.
To create the Caffarella collection, Zoé was searching for inspiration and ideas to create something new to add to Célestine’s world. So she decided to have a walk in a very wild and huge park in Rome : the Caffarella park.
The sun was already hot and the plants were still green and smelly from the spring.
Being in nature is her way of doing research, and what makes her happy is to know that she can borrow things from it to create unique jewels for unknown people.
Maybe nature is a universal language, and for every person has its own meaning.
So this time she borrowed from nature herbs and plants that she picked directly from the ground and used them to make printings on the wax and then bring it to melt through the wax casting process.
