Each La Contessa design is completely handcrafted in the studio. First, a
model is sculpted and then casted in pewter. The various pieces are then
soldered and finished to create a multilayered, naturelike appearance.
Semiprecious stones such as Carnelian, Desert Jasper, and Mojave
Green Turquoise and Austrian crystals are used to create unique and
beautiful combination of colors. Much attention is paid to detail— turn a
piece over and you’ll find a bee, a bird, or a flower or perhaps a pair of
hands or a bird in a nest as the closure on a necklace. All of these
original features distinguish La Contessa in the marketplace, and the
designs are often considered timeless collectibles for many customers.
