Pictured: The GCAA featured artist for the January market is Giulia Sciutto, owner of Happy Bee Jewelry. Sciutto lives in Daphne, but was born and raised in Genoa, Italy. Sciutto’s unique wire jewelry pieces are bold, beautiful and handmade.
“During one of my recent visits to Italy, I saw for the first time a piece of jewelry made with aluminum wire, and I was moonstruck,’’ she said. “Back in the States, I bought a roll of aluminum wire, some pliers, and I began to experiment making my first jewelry pieces. For me, playing with wire is like drifting into a peaceful place full of unexpected, pleasant, and endless surprises.”
Sciutto describes her jewelry as hand-crafted contemporary, modern, unique, organic jewelry. Each piece is unique. “They may be sisters, but never twins,’’ she said.
