Portrait by Sara Mautone
Ilenia Corti founded Vernissage Project.
Ilenia grew up in a family of jewelers who dedicated their life to the creation
of unique works of art since 1969.
She is a fashion accessories designer who collaborated with different high luxury maisons all over the world.
Vernissage jewellery collections are an invitation to assist to the show of the frozen
Nature in its vital tension, an image fading in time, a testimony of the memory of when small things were the most enchanting. Each jewel crystallized into a fragment of this fragile and mysterious universe is a microcosm of detailed miniatures.
The project finds its inspiration in the tension between a dream vision, childlike vitality and the pragmatism of the adult world.
The uniqueness and strong creative identity lead the brand to numerous calls and
prestigious events in Italy and abroad as Vogue Talents, Altaroma, UK jewelery
awards, Super talents, Artisanal intelligence,ASVOFF, in addition to enthusiastic response from the most authoritative magazines such as Vogue UK,Ny times, Los Angeles Times and many others.
Each jewellery collection tells about a natural microcosm, diamonds in nuances from
grey to black, and the use of pink, yellow burnished gold and silver with enamel create a suggestion of lost beauty.
Vernissage is produced in Italy according to the traditional rules of high jewellery.
The collection is handmade in Italy by expert craftsmen of one of the most leader
companies in this sector, Santagostino, owned by the Corti family.
