Next up on Palazzo Tornabouni's Bespoke Fashion Seminar, was a lesson in Bespoke and custom jewelry.

This time, we had the artisans come to us at Palazzo Tornabouni. We visited with a woman named Kathaline and some other representatives of Aloisia Custom Jewelry.

Here is the excerpt from the Bespoke Fashion Seminar booklet:

"Run by an old Florentine family, Aloisia has been custome generations. Their clientel includes everyone form European royalty to locan shop clerks, but the business is so exclusive, that the only way one may have a piece designed by them is by personal introduction. Today, Simone Rucellai and his team of artisans, carry on the family business, producing entirely new jewels or by bringing new life to inherited or older pieces."

Here are some photos of the amazing pieces shown:


Some sketches and designs.
