Spool pendant

The artefact

The old terracotta spool, used to roll up the thread, becomes jewel, turning into a sophisticated pendant/earring. Created as object of local identity connected to the textile Sardinian culture, it is part of the "IS" project, available in yellow gold or silver. It is decorated with coloured silk and embellished with a pendant made of filigree and a tintinnabulum, ad educated reference to apotropaic amulets.
