Cosima Bucarelli is a jewelry designer and multi-disciplinary artist based in Rome.
After co-founding and directing the magazine #Horst und Edeltraut, Cosima swapped her desk for a jeweler’s bench to learn the traditional goldsmith craft from artisans in Italy and Thailand. Playing with precious metals, gems, and enamels she created transformative fine jewelry pieces that celebrate the mysterious beauty of the cosmos and channel its mystical energy.
It inspired her to investigate space, movement, and matter beyond the function and form of jewelry trough drawing, sculpture and performance.
Cosima's whimsical yet timeless jewels are made from gold or sterling silver; set with precious and semi-precious gems; embellished with colorful enamels. Each design is handcrafted in Bangkok by the same artisans that mentored her. As members of the Responsible Jewelry Council, they meet the highest standard of ethical, human rights, social and environmental practices.
Designs are made to order in 4-8 weeks. Request a catalogue or visit the studio in Rome.

The starting point for Cosima’s projects is observations about the individual as a physical, psychological and spiritual being living in a complex web of interdependencies.
Rooted in the Heraclitean thought that change is the only constant and all is in flux, she is interested in investigating the process and potential of metamorphosis as a central aspect of existence. As such, movement is a recurring theme and she is currently experimenting with the body’s transformative effect on matter.
