Attilio Codognato is the current owner and fourth-generation heir of Casa Codognato, a world renowned jewelry boutique located near Piazza San Marco in Venice. Casa Codognato was founded in 1866 by Attilio’s great-grandfather, Simeone Codognato, and the family tradition of exquisite jewelry continues, also today, with Attilio’s work. Always evocative, his aesthetics reminds at “memento mori”. The shop features brooches, antique cameos, serpentine rings previously worn by such well-known members of the world of style as Coco Chanel, Diana Vreeland, Elton John, Elizabeth Taylor, Nicole Kidman.
People traverse the world to reach Casa Codognato, Attilio says, because “the Codognato style is a common reflection on death, and thus on life. [...] a message that celebrates the image of life.”

Lisa Black is a sculptor, jeweller and artist based in Auckland, New Zealand, born in Australia in 1982.
Her love of animals and their form, combined with a preoccupation with an imminent future where technology and biology are intimately combined, led her to create her ongoing series of modified animals. [...]
Her work is a reflection of our undeniable technological progression; seeing animals with carefully integrated mechanical additions encourages us to reassess how we define “natural”.
By creating beauty within this supposed paradox, she challenges the concept of a world separated into the ‘sacrosanct’ natural and ‘vulgar’ industrial.
“Did you ever take the plunge? or maybe you were too afraid?
I did the Nevis 134m bungee jump when I backpacked through New Zealand, and I must say that’s the scariest thing I’ve ever done! Even just watching others do it as scary as hell.
So here’s to keeping your eyes open for the bungee jumpers out there! ;-)”
