Monica Castiglioni

For more than 30 years, jewelry designer Monica Castiglioni has worked between Milan and Brooklyn, New York where she now has a showroom-atelier. She has a long “relationship” with the US, from 1999 to present she has sold her collection at MOMA, at Moss, at Cooper Hewitt Museum, at Esso Gallery (NYC), at Walker Art Center (Minneapolis) and at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. Her main material is bronze which, thanks to oxidation, distinctively expresses its vitality.

In the last few years, Castiglioni decided to take on a new challenge and expand her horizons, designing objects and jewelry made with felt in Kirghizstan and pirex objects made in Brooklyn. 

In 2014 she met one of the founders of .bijouets and she was fascinated by the endless possibilities that 3D printing offers, such as the design freedom and the possibility to create one-piece jewelry. Her collection for .bijouets is characterized by the modularity of jewels that allows endless possibilities of combinations. Her jewelry can be worn in different ways and combined in order to create new pieces and customized for your own style. The jewelry is made of laser sintered polyamide that can be enriched by bronze elements, creating a link with other jewelry by Castiglioni.
