Inspired by various forms of vegetation, Italian designer Gualti dreamed up these surrealist, organic-symbolic extensions of the human body in the form of jewels. The extravagant earrings are designed to resemble certain flowers and the roots of plants rising up from deep within.

“I have always been attracted by what lies beneath the surface of reality,” says Gualti. “The roots of plants, whose forms fascinate me and capture my emotive sides.”

“I create the way I breathe, my pieces project my feelings.The ornaments born of my hands become extensions for the body, seeds reflecting the personality of their wearer.”

He has a very poetic way with words, a sure sign that art flows through all elements of his life.
