HANDMADE JEWELRY AND HAND BAGS by Marilita Borgese
Jewelry maker, Marilita Borgese of Palermo, Sicily
We are delighted and honored to carry the exquisite jewelry hand crafted by Marilita Borgese of Palermo, Sicily in support of our mission to bring the finest artisanal MADE IN SICILY items to the United States. Ms. Borgese has joined with us with a direct line to her exclusive pieces, of which many are one-of-a-kind and all of which are breathtakingly beautiful and unique.
Lace and crochet earrings, bracelets, necklaces
The story of Marilita Borgese’s jewelry, the story of lace and crochet shaped in the form of earrings, bracelets, necklaces, cuff links, features a series known as “The Sicily Collection,” with scenarios, figures and characters linked closely to the Island where this story is born. Precious treasures from an ancient age are recovered and modified with exquisite processes, and transformed into ideal backdrops for ceramics, paladins, and the Sicilian “pupi” of the Sicilian storytellers.
Crystals, pearls, gold: celebrate the nobility of Sicilian literature and culture
Sicily’s charms are chiseled into crystal, pearls, Swarovski, silver and gold, lace and crochet to celebrate the nobility of the Gattopardo, the splendor of the Norman Palace, the details of the Palatine Chapel...the music, cinema, and arts as they originally were experienced in light in the Land of the Sun and its outlying islands.

Many of these pieces are one-of-a-kind and we therefore only carry a small selection that is available for immediate shipping, as indicated.
