Like in a Renaissance workshop, LE SIBILLE is the guardian of the ancient Small Roman Mosaic technique.
Camilla Bronzini, Francesca Neri Serneri and Antonella Perugini, share a passion for this ancient goldsmith art. At the end of the 1500s, the colossal project of recreating the altarpieces in Saint Peter’s Basilica using micro-mosaics took place. Later, in the mid-1700s, the Vatican Mosaic Studio took advantage of this micro-mosaic process. And with that, mosaic workshops multiplied in the capital city. Table tops, small boxes, tobacco boxes, brooches, bracelets and necklaces were covered in microscopic, multi-colored tiles to create reproductions of ancient monuments and scenes from everyday life.
Those magical, microscopic tiles created with a spinning technique are now found in the one-of-a-kind jewels made by Le Sibille. Both artisans and artists, Le Sibille dedicates a considerable amount of time to each jewel – much like they did in times past. And each tile is placed on an 18K gold base by hand. The mosaics are reproductions of Greek, Roman, early Christian, Byzantine, Renaissance, Baroque, Islamic and Asian art. Along with their micro-mosaic collection, Le Sibille boasts two other collections. The more recent, I Giganti, wich features colored stones, and Lilliput, an original interpretation of modern jewelry.
