The Alessandra Murgia Nocturama Jewelry Collection is Magic-Inspired

The Alessandra Murgia Nocturama Jewelry series is a modern take on the ancient symbols of ritualism and pagan magic. The Italian-born designer was inspired by her fascination with the meanings and practices behind these religious symbols.

Rather than using cliche images like horns and crosses, Murgia reinterpreted well-recognized symbols into simplified graphical illustrations. These emblems were stamped onto bronze cutouts of triangles, squares and circles. The minimalist aesthetics and skillful craftsmanship make these pieces wearable works of history. Murgia says she chose bronze for her collection because it "provides a modernity to a traditional material and will beautifully age with time."

The Alessandra Murgia Nocturama Jewelry series is a beautiful contemporary interpretation of artifacts from archaic civilizations.
