Opulent. Luxurious. Decadent. The Florentine Collection was inspired by a walk along the Arno River in Florence, Italy. Julia was visiting a jeweler in the Ponte Vecchio and fell absolutely in love with a stunning gold bracelet with a snakeskin pattern. As a bracelet is an ornament for the wrist, this pattern became the inspiration for the ornamentation on the edge of a bowl in the Florentine Collection. The ridge of each piece reflects the snakeskin pattern, while the intricate arches on the sides of each piece represent the bridges arches of the Ponte Vecchio. Sand-cast and hand carved aluminum paired with the hand applied crushed mother of pearl infused enamel, with the signature thumbprint swirl, allow you to express your sumptuous side with the stunning statement pieces of the Florentine Collection. The Florentine Collection is food safe and can go into the freezer and the oven up to 250 degrees.
