Wearable Sculptures

Wearable sculptures | Altered Materials



Alien forms, organic and material illusions, obtained from the transfiguration of plastic objects in common use, blend in alternative materials (metal industrial wastes, resins, pvc), textile sculptures (natural and synthetic fabrics treated and molded) and traditional components in glass.


Poor materials and precious materials, of different origin, that are mutually strengthen and tone down, blending into a perfect balance of shapes, volumes and colors.


Strong contrasts between projections in the future and classic revivals,

between static and dynamic lines, geometries and sinuous, fullness and transparency, opacity and gloss, smooth texture and vibrant texture, make her creations a design object, result of a research staff evolving.


Simona Girelli expresses herself with an abstract language, but to make she use real elements, common and in the eyes of everyone: the objects that surround us and are born for a certain use.

She alters these objects, she deforms them, exploiting them redefine their plastic characteristics and relocates them in totally different contexts from which they belonged, canceling their origins.


Her very personal patterns give life to her contemporary jewelry, original three-dimensional structures entirely machined, assembled by hand in her workshop and Made in Italy.


Jewelry, Not jewelry, which manufacture, creativity and uniqueness make it precious.






Each product is the brainchild of Simona Girelli, the exclusive property of the brand Simona Girelli Designer.

Prohibited to third parties including the reproduction and distribution of photographic material on your site.


Each product is made ENTIRELY HAND in all phases of production, from the creation of the assembly components.

Small imperfections are to be considered merits and not defects, crafted execution witness and not industrial.

After a preliminary phase of the study sketches, begins the phase of experimentation in order to verify the properties of various products on the materials chosen and test, therefore, the compatibility.

The objects used, born originally to meet other needs and already on the market in other areas, are carefully chosen after a long search, and used after being subjected to a special processing.

Become a "component", or part of the creations, the material or object that, after having been altered material after the various processes, responds to mechanical and aesthetic expectations of the project.

Ends the machining process the complex and laborious assembly that, for some pieces, results in working days.


Every piece is UNIQUE, both in colors and form, as a result of a process whose steps are partially controllable, and repeatable only in global aesthetic vision.
