After successful years in International Relations, Giulia Barela decided to move to more creative jobs following her inner inspiration. Firstly she attended a goldsmith workshop and in 2011 she established her eponymous line of jewelry in bronze and silver. Giulia personally works on each piece of her collection in her studio in the historic center of Rome. Her statement pieces have a story to tell: of culture, craft, traditions to be handed down; they are meant for a woman who looks for timeless, and yet contemporary jewelry, which reflects and enhances the personality of who wears it. Giulia Barela jewelry is in limited editions and totally handcrafted in Italy using the renowned traditional techniques of highend jewelry
