‘Chiodo’ Collection Pays Homage to Punk

Osanna Visconti di Modrone created a jewelry collection she realized exclusively for Italian e-tailer Yoox.

SPEAKING OF PUNK: Osanna Visconti di Modrone is paying homage to the punk movement with “Chiodo,” the jewelry collection she realized exclusively for Italian e-tailer Yoox. The capsule, which takes its name from the hand-forged nail, which was once a symbol of the Seventies’ British punk movement, includes one-of-a-kind earrings, necklaces and a bracelet. The pieces are all hand-crafted in bronze and then brushed for a shimmering effect.

“For the exclusive collection created for, I decided to let my hands do the talking; a nail can generate so many ideas: from visions of a carpenter to a punk, blurring the line between art and craft and hopefully tweaking the imagination,” Visconti di Modrone said.

The “Chiodo” collection, which retails between 30 euros, or $40 at current exchange rates, and 301 euros, or $396, for a choker, will be sold at starting from Friday.
