SSBNED/18Y AUG. IN ROME B
Emanuela Duca, a jewelry artist based in Hudson Valley, NY, was born in Rome, Italy. While pursuing her degree from the School of Art in Rome and the European Institute of Design, Emanuela was involved in dance, painting, and sculpture. But it was in jewelry design that she finally found the medium she had been searching for: the marriage of movement and sculpture. Emanuela Duca’s earth-bound, highly textured surfaces are evocative of volcanic ash and the ancient ruins of her native Rome but their shape and combination, true to her New York sensibility, are clean, simple and minimal.
