Phénix Tears hoop earrings

Giovanna Torrico collects beautiful vintage sequins, turning them into modern, mercurial jewelry: light, kinetic, textural pieces that showcase their resilient, resplendent materials. They’re stronger than they seem, flexible but firm, molded into surprising forms - not always focusing on the sequins’ shininess, but often exploring their fine symmetry instead. I especially love the shape of Torrico’s Hyperbola and Phénix Tears pieces, which take advantage of the sequins’ somewhat fluid potential with agile curves and twists.
