Mariella Pilato _ A Constructed State of Mind _ Campaign(1)_1

The mythological influences along with the allegorical personifications infuse with the ancient art inclinations in semi-precious metals and precious stones. The whispered stories of cultural heritage behind the Mariella Pilato‘s  ‘A Constructed State of Mind‘ look like they are enclosed in the geometrical shapes made of sterling silver.

The jewellery line is the mixture of numerous inspirations of theater and architecture initially based in youthful dreams of the artist and later generated in adult life. With every handcrafted piece Pilato renders her passion into the refined accessories composed of silver, an implication of gun metal, rocky crystals and an aggregate of agate.  The Balian based artist explains that the collection “tells the story of her cultural heritage, reflecting good taste and innovation while her vision recalls traditions with a sensitive trend toward a joyful fashion and modernity”.
