Bea Bongiasca, born in Milan in 1990, is an Italian jewellery designer. Bea Bongiasca’s inspiration stems from her deep passion for pop culture, contemporary art and design, conflated with her love for everything colourful. Hers is a spirited and non- traditional take on jewellery which does not compromise on quality but remains accessible to people of her own age. The classic gold of her jewellery is often joyfully submerged with bright enamel colours that are not commonplace in fine jewellery. The unexpected evolution lends her jewellery kinetic movement and a bold look. Bea’s focus is on jewellery as an art form, a concept that is pivotal to her design process. Each piece – at once playful and intricate – functions as a miniature fantasy world for the wearers to immerse themselves in and evade reality, even if just for a minute! In 2013, Bea graduated with honours in Jewellery Design BA at Central Saint Martins in London. It was that same year that she founded her own brand and studio in Milan. She presented her first collection, ‘No Rice, No Life’ at 10 Corso Como during Milan Fashion Week in September 2014. In December 2014, Bea had a solo show with contemporary jewellery gallery, Galleria Antonella Villanova, in the Design section of Art Basel: Miami Beach. The gallery also exhibited her work in the 2015 edition of MiArt and Design Basel in June 2015.
