Barbara Biffoli comes from Rome where she presents her collections in bronze and silver with a discreet elegance. Her design is clear and immediate, her cuff-manchette are elaborate in the manufacturing of the surfaces, in bronze and silver, and profiled with diamonds and metal drawings.
Her bracelets tell a lot of Barbara but also her long, fringe necklaces or the feather-like collier that drop down on the décolleté. She got the degree in Art History and this background is clearly seen in her jewelry pieces, rich and elaborate that tend to revist a baroque mood. Barbara Biffoli can be considered as a forerunner of the current coolest ear-cuffs that caress the ear in a futuristic ‘manteau’ in brown diamonds. The chromatic development doesn’t go away from the grey hues, the burnished colors, the brown colors. A dark escape trend.
