Italian Canadian jewellery designer, Alessandra Pompei graduated in 2020 from OCAD University in Toronto, Canada. During her studies she created a distinctive style that celebrates and blends her rich Roman background with a modern aesthetic. This blending of cultures and traditions is achieved through her execution of fine craftsmanship and goldsmithing techniques. Her style is daring while also taking into consideration the ethical decisions involved in the making of extravagant items. She aims to create a dialogue between the object and its viewers to further consider what we think jewellery is and should be. Alessandra’s jewellery is highly recognizable for its striking originality and often seemingly bizarre designs. Her unique vision of luxury originated in Rome but became cemented through her post-secondary studies in Toronto, Canada.
