With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, now is the time to get out your greens. Green scarves, green jewelry, and green handbags will add a festive touch to any outfit this season. Emerald and gold hues bring a subtle elegance to your wardrobe that you can wear all year long. This week, we would like to share three of our favorite festive treasures that are sure to get you in the spirit for St. Patrick’s Day.
This suede bag with a green stone accent was skillfully handcrafted by Alessandra and Elisabetta, our Italian leather handbag artisans. Using the masterful leatherworking techniques and exacting standards passed down to them by their ancestors, these sisters create each bag from the softest Italian suede. The braided leather handles and bold circular stone accent bring this bag from classic to contemporary. Each is part of a limited edition collection for Uno Alla Volta. Although perfect for St. Patrick’s Day, this exquisite bag brings a pop of color to be enjoyed all year long.
On Venice’s famed isle of Murano, our glass master Lorena keeps the art of lampworking alive with masterpieces such as this “Lucky” stretch bracelet. Each of the beads is made, uno alla volta, over a hot flame. A mix of green, gold, and amber translucent and opaque Murano glass beads and sparkling crystal accents combine for a look of elegance.
Self-taught artist Joyita awakens a blank canvas of silk satin chiffon by hand-painting vivid shamrock and clover patterns onto this festive St. Patrick’s Day scarf. She dries and steams each color to set it before she adds another. This scarf is as unique as each of our members of our una granda famiglia. Just like a four-leaf clover, no two are exactly alike. For a festive touch to any accessory, this scarf ties perfectly around the handles of Alessandra And Elisabetta’s Italian Suede Bag featured above.
A lot of patience and creativity is required for Mariagrazia of Venice to handcraft this shamrock barrette. First, she must meticulously hand-string hundreds of tiny Venetian glass seed beads onto copper wire before each strand is hand-shaped into the shamrock design.
