I’m Martina Bonomo, aka Taura, jewelry designer and goldsmith, specialized in engraving.
Born and raised in Milan, I approached the goldsmith world in 2011 at the Central Saint Martin, University of the Arts, in London, and then completed my training at the Ambrosiana Goldsmith School in Milan.
During my academic career, I discovered the world of burin handmade engraving, a technique I fell madly in love with and which I perfected over the following Years by working in the engraving department of the Buccellati company.
I create each jewel entirely by hand, from design to polishing, and for this reason each piece is unique and can have slightly different details from the initial model.
For the creation of the shape of my jewels I mainly use modeling and lost wax casting, an artisanal technique that dates back to the Bronze Age, widely used in the world of goldsmithing.
The main feature in each of my jewels is the engraving process, with which I decorate the metal surface using ancient techniques of the Italian goldsmith tradition.
After years of stylistic research, today my jewels represent the deep love I have for nature, a source of constant inspiration, as well as the various facets of the human emotion spectrum, which I try to represent in various ways through different shapes and shades. .
One of the things I love most is creating personalized jewelry, trying to forge desires, emotions and passions into a unique and non-reproducible amulet.
