Anaconda at White Bird

What a pleasure it is to discover Monica Rossi’s jewelry at White Bird! I met this Italian designer in the early 2000s when she had a boutique in Saint-Germain-des-Prés. Her 19-carat gold, of an infinitely subtle color, is shaped like old lace. Her necklaces are inspired by rosaries. Monica Rossi hunts down miniature elements and has others (like her crocheted bears) made by Italian artisans. She then assembles them into “story necklaces”. Her leitmotif: the engraved secret message placed inside a medallion, a ring or rolled gold leaf. Pure poetry.
