Clarissa Atelier

“There’s nothing more useful than superfluous”. Oscar Wilde

Clarissa was born in Rome in 1986. After classical studies, she achieved a Bachelor’s Degree in Philosophy, Theories of Ethical Knowledge, and a later Master Degree in Publishing & Writing at ``La Sapienza`` University of Rome. Her liberal arts education influences the design of her creations suspended between dream and reality. During the last years of university, she attended the “Accademia delle Arti Orafe”, Rome and the “London School of Jewellery”, where she learned the goldsmithing art and the lost wax tecnique. In 2016 she studied stone setting at Lao Le Arti Orafe School of Jewellery, Florence, with particular attention on contemporary jewelry.
Her passion for jewellery gradually turned into a real job. Clarissa’s jewels are totally handmade and she puts real and profound care in every step of their design and production. Clarissa Atelier developed a concept in which handcrafted jewelry joins the essential style of comic strip together with the showy virtuosity of Art Decò. Getting inspired by motifs not belonging to traditional aesthetics, her creations recall the dreamlike dimension of the fairytale and the game.

Pop Decò

Clarissa Atelier is a slow jewelry brand  inspired together by Pop Art and Art Decò: 2 modern artistic trends that rebirth in our culture.
The uniqueness of Clarissa Atelier jewels lies in the effort of melting 2 visions, Pop and Deco.
Popis simplicity, immediacy, colors, tiny lines, and the purpose to translate cult objects in jewelry (Ex voto
heart pendant, Frida’s little hands earrings…): the pop remake of classical symbols.
Decòis elegance, detail’s care, complexity, geometry, tipical features of the 30ies fashion and art when neoclassical taste encounters the Rococò enthusiasm.
Translating symbols of the past in contemporary icons with colored and simple shapes, Pop cuture is mixing with the elegance and geometry of Decò style. The synthesis of these 2 different tales of art create a
third tale: Clarissa’s story.
Jewels’ story is about the designer ‘s story: a tale made of many stories named Pop deco!
