Fiorina’s Golden Anniversary

Fiorina Jewellery

Melbourne jeweller Fiorina Golotta’s believes in talismans and lucky charms. After all, they seem to have taken her this far; her old-world inspired label of precious trinkets – featuring the likes of coins, freshwater pearls and Amazonite – recently celebrated its 20 year golden anniversary. To mark the occasion, Fiorina commissioned her sister, photographer Francesca, to create a dozen distinct portraits of selected ‘Faces of Fiorina’. Below the designer chats about Fiorina’s past, present and glittering future.

The highlight

The highlight has been watching the connection people have formed with the jewellery over the years that has somehow transformed their lives and provided them with a deep sentimental value. I love how varied my clientèle is, transcending so many pre conceived ideas.

The “Faces of Fiorina” campaign

This was an extraordinary, heart warming experience – we had no idea how much it would move us like it did. It was confirmation that we are all so connected through all our passions, loves and daily inspirations. They were all fun to shoot! I honestly remember just laughing so much with everyone. Franca was fantastic in capturing the ‘Faces of Fiorina’. Everyone genuinely let us in whole heartedly.

Actress Kat Stewart stars in the shoot

Kat Stewart is a sweetheart! I did a shoot with her many years ago along with the J’aton Boys.

Her most treasured piece

I have been collecting jewellery for ever! My collection is so varied from tribal to deco. There are staples like my snake ring or scroll necklace that have become part of me. One piece in particular is a carved coral ‘horn of plenty’ that always reminds me of my father and all the blessings he provided for us.

The best part

The best part is the absolute delight in making beautiful decorative things. The stones or materials l work with are so precious to me that l can’t help but be responsive to the energy they give.
