Andrea Giunti was born in Florence, Italy in 1987. He discovered his passion for jewelry making after high school, which lead him to attend The Institute of Arts of Florence and The Metallo Nobile School, where he became proficient in the arts of sculpting, engraving, and designing.
In Florence he established the brand Andrea Giunti Gioielli, exhibiting his collections at Pitti Donna Pre-Collection in July of 2011.
He created pieces that are daringly dynamic and simply unique, often crossing the line between avant-garde fashion jewelry and surprising mechanical inventions. The pieces permit one to interact, play, dissect. Shapes change and gears spin, as the jewel reveals its secrets.2009 is the year when he started his current stylistic research, with a collection of pieces that incorporated magnets and iron powder, both as means of creating movement and as a main aesthetical feature.
While attending the Art Institute of Florence he participated to a student exhibition regarding Futurism, an Italian artistic movement that originated in the early 20th Century. He chose to create custom pieces that draw their inspiration from one of Futurism’s main themes: dynamism.As he began assisting to the endlessly different shapes created by magnets and iron powder, he realized this dynamic aspect of jewelry making could also be aesthetically beautiful and please the eye like the glowing of a diamond could. Ever since then, he never stopped researching the possibilities of motion in his art form, paying attention to materials and their interactions and trying to find new techniques to make the impossible happen, all while letting his imagination run loose.
