Valeria Rossini was born in Verona in 1988 and began to approach the world of jewelry while studying Fashion Design at the Politecnico di Milano.
Her dissertation on contemporary jewelry was about macabre jewelry.
After graduation in 2012, she studied goldsmith at Scuola Orafa Ambrosiana and diamond analysis at Iitalian Gemological Institute in Milan and in the same year began working as gemologist in a big company of fine jewelry. In 2016, she started a collective project with Rita Martinez and Giuditta Ambrosini as independent designer, and founded Atelier Labor Limae in Verona.
She currently collaborated with some concept store in Italy, and has participated in Autor Fair 2018 with the Womancraft Collective.
Her main creations are rings, based on clean, minimalist shapes and materials. Every single piece is made by hand, without using any molds. The natural appearance of the materials is exalted by finishings that delicately contrast one another.

Birth – Galanthus Nivalis rings
materials: silver, white enamel
technique: handcrafted wax carving
Her research in this project moves along a path which from birth leads to death through four kingdoms of any natural history museum.
She unified her presentation by using the same four colours (bronze, silver, black iron oxide and white materials like enamels, sandings, quartzes and diamonds).
She identified birth with flora by representing the three germination stages of Galanthus Nivalis, the first flower to peep out from its snowy bed.
Growth. Instead, is represented by the mineral world through the development of Hyaline quartz.
Love becomes human anatomy in the three Dissections of the heart and death goes back to space in the three explosion phases of the type 1-A Supernova.
