Renata Manganelli was born in Italy. After many years in London, she recently has moved to Turin where she lives and works. She worked in the theater world and was part of one of the greatest Italian companies, the Glauco Mauri Company. She worked also with the new media in their early days, founding one of the first new media agencies in Italy, Quam. Then Renata has dedicated herself to sculpture, reducing the dimensions of her creations until they are transformed into jewels, like microsculptures to wear. Renata has participated in several exhibitions and she was selected in different competitions. Since 2013 she has signed the collection Mirè.

Unique piece made by hand.
