‘Over the past year I’ve been looking to Dante’s “Divine Comedy” for answers. Never before has the notion of being lost in a dark wood been a more apt metaphor for society right now.
The Roots is an invitation to reflect. What are our priorities? What matters the most to us? For me, the answer is people: my family, my friends, my team and the incredible people who make up the fabric of the Alighieri community. I wanted to use this collection to hold a mirror up to myself, and explore the roots of what makes us who we are.
The Roots Collection has been shot on these very people – a myriad of amazing women.' - RM.
In the Ancient Forest, a woman - la bella donna - who's identity remains nebulous, offers a description of the verdant and beautiful forest:
"Those who in ancient times called up in verse the age of gold and hang its happy state dreamed on Parnassus of perhaps this very place. Here the root of humankind was innocent, here it is always spring, with every fruit in season. This is the nectar of which the ancients tell".
The Ancient Forest earrings are created with gnarly links that speak to these roots, with a gilded seed to remind you of the beauty of re-rooting from time to time.
