The burning passion for the jeweller’s art, which arose purely by chance, grew inexorably day after day, being fed by teachers, personal experiences, meetings, and the first small creations.
So, it was not love at first sight but certainly became a great love.
And if you ask Devis when exactly he knew he had taken the right path, he will admit that he does not know. However, he will also say that he remembers well all the times he thought he was not good enough for this work and it was these moments of uncertainty that drove him to try even harder.
It is an honest answer which reveals a deep respect for the glorious tradition of Italian jewellery of which Devis is now a worthy and esteemed representative.
