In February 1987, Tiziana Redavid, an architecture student in Turin, visits the factory of a friend, an industrial springs manufacturer. Springs are scattered all over the floor, the young Italian picks up a few, puts them on her wrist, and with her imagination, these simple springs soon find an artistic intent. Tiziana is stricken by the analogy with African ornaments and by the aptitude of this industrial material to evolve into jewellery.
Molla means spring in Italian. The delicacy of their texture evokes silk and their lightness contrasts amazingly with their quantity.
