Jewelry does not need to be made from precious gems and metals to be beautiful. Angela Caputi’s internationally acclaimed brand, Giuggiù, started in a small workshop in the Santo Spirito district of Florence
. Her bright and chunky items are currently found on the arms of some of the world’s most fashionable women. (Style icon Iris Apfel included part of her own Caputi collection in an exhibition at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art.) Angela designs each piece herself and has them made by artisans throughout Italy
. The bold plastic pieces are crafted to look like coral or faceted beads or sea creatures.
