Loins and tigers and bears, oh my! Oh yes, when…
Jeweler Stefano Canturi admits to taking his inspiration from art’s Cubist period of the early 20’s. The Australian native began his career as an apprentice in his teens and has never looked back. He began almost immediately creating commissioned pieces for private clients and established his own line in 1986.
Canturi’s pieces are a great example of modern classic. The cubist, architectural forms stay feminine with the rounded edges and asymetric designs. He combines different stone cuts to a radiant effect.
Stefano’s colleboration with Baz Luhrmann in 2001 resulted in the majstic Moulin Rouge necklace that was worn by Nicole Kidman in her starring role.A Cubist Painting by Georges Braque, who founded the movement with Pablo Picasso.
