I live between Creazzo (Vicenza) and Milan, where I inaugurated in 2010 the Blob House studio.
Since 1990 I have created contemporary jewels, unique pieces, resulting from research and experimentation, that have been published in magazines and books and exhibited in numerous art galleries and international museums, such as La Triennale di Milano, the Museum of Decorative Arts in Berlin, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the Mart Museum in Rovereto, the Museum of Jewellery in Vicenza.
I also participated in the First International Biennial in Beijing in 2013 and in the European three-year Exhibition of Contemporary Jewellery in Mons in 2014.
In 2016 some of my jewels were part of the XXI design triennial entitled Women in Italian Design at the museum of La Triennale di Milano.
My jewels have been exhibited several times in the Oratory of San Rocco in Padua; some of my works are in the public collections of:
Museo degli Argenti, Palazzo Pitti (Firenze), Museum of Applied and Decorative Arts, Palazzo Zuckermann (Padova), Museum of the City and Territory of Monsummano Terme (Pistoia), Fondazione Cominelli, Cisano di San Felice d/B (Brescia), Permanent Collection of the Triennale (Milano), Casabianca Museum, Malo (Vicenza).
At the same time, I cooperate with important goldsmiths’ companies, designing and realizing prototypes of new precious collections, and since 1999 I have been working alongside artistic and design activities on didactic and educational activities.
In 2018 a band of Blob Rings are exhibited in the Design room of the Jewelery Museum of Vicenza.

* text by Barbara Uderzo recited during “La Grandissima Occasione”, performance by Italian designers on Italian design, held at the “Teatro dell’Arte della Triennale” in Milan on 17 April 2015. Each invited designer had one minute to give a quick and original contribution to the reflection on Design, as a strong signal for the future, that synthesized – even visually – his poetics. The designer was invited to wear a dress that would reflect his/her design attitude. Event curated by Silvana Annichiarico
