Devis Palazzi
PORTOVERDE – ITALY – JEWELLER

The classical Italian tradition of jewellery-making coupled with modern technology looks to the future, providing the gift of creativity with all the instruments necessary to craft unique jewellery inspired by nature and its colours.

These few words represent the heart of the entire work of Devis Palazzi, a master jeweller who with his creations is able to interpret his surrounding world and the wishes of those customers who place their trust in him in order to have something precious, original, and personal.

It was his passion for drawing that led Devis to the Institute of Art of Pesaro

And then to choose, purely for curiosity, a course in metal arts.

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.

An initial idea, a spark of inspiration, needs to be recorded quickly. In this sense paper and pencil are the most effective instruments. From the first sketch a more detailed drawing is produced in which the shapes and colours find their place in what is in effect the result of the creative process.

Then we come to the rendering and a model of the article printed in 3D. This model is fundamentally important to understand the size, balance and fit of the product.

Lastly there is the question of craftsmanship, that know-how of the jeweller’s tradition which has remained virtually unchanged over the centuries. Precise masterful work through which man has learned to shape metals, to set stones and give form to nature, transforming the materials available into small works of art that can be worn.

Precious and beautiful.

Looking in the window of Devis’s atelier, which looks right onto the marina of Portoverde, one can really appreciate how much the sea plays an important role in his creative process.

The display of jewellery, with its sparkling gold and precious stones, is superimposed with the white reflections of the boats, dark blue water, and intense azure of the sky, creating a full and electrifying chromatic palette. The fragrance of the air, murmur of the waves, squeaking of the ropes and distant call of the seagulls complete the charming scene.

And so a coral seahorse, finely set by hand with diamonds, does not even seem to be the work of man, but rather a jewel that has emerged from the sea and taken rest right there, in that shop window.

As if by magic.

“Every single item is treated
as a small work of art.”
