Handcrafted in Italy, Alessio Boschi jewelry aims to create a dialogue between people and cultures. Unique and often eclectic, his pieces feature colorful stones, multi-functionality, and curved lines. His addition of minute details is reminiscent of his Roman Baroque Heritage, creating an element of surprise in each piece. Boschi believes that sustainability is the future, and brings this belief into his process, specifically excluding the use of coral and ivory and experimenting with alternative materials, such as tagua seed.
When he was seven years old, Alessio’s father and mother separated. It was in designing and being amongst nature that Alessio found peace; it was his safe place and what guided him through this difficult time. However, instead of pursuing arts in school, he pursued classical studies, at the influence of his mother. She believed he needed to get a well-rounded education and build a strong foundation, after which he could pursue anything he wanted to do with art. Alessio credits this foundation with shaping him - and his art - into the artist he is today.
Following high school, Alessio attended The Academy of Fashion and Costume in Rome. It was there, when he was 19 years old, that he first realized his passion for jewelry. Soon after, he learned that this passion was, in fact, always a part of him; right after his parents divorced, his mother took him to the National Museum of Athens, where the treasure of Alexander the Great was being displayed. There, Alessio spent hours staring at the pieces of jewelry that were on display. The connection was undeniable.
