Laboratorio Fucina Orafa
Daniele is the son and the grandson of craftsmen, who passed him the love for manual work, although they were engaged in different sectors. After an apprenticeship at a jeweller's workshop in Cagliari, where he honed his skills and developed an artistic sensitivity of his own, in 2005 he opened a shop in the city centre of Selargius, where he still works, selling jewels which reinterpreted Sardinian culture with a fancy and modern touch. He has organized several exhibits both at local and national level, with positive results in terms of audience and critics, and being acknowledged as a Master of Arts.
The objects which are part of the collection are hand-crafted with different goldsmithing techniques, either in gold or silver. They are the result of the artisan's sensitivity towards Nature and Sardinian goldsmith tradition. These elements and the evocative effects of the artefacts are a proof of the artist's creativity: stones, corals, animal horns, mother-of-pearl, filigree elements, used in chockers, bracelets, earrings and much more. Objects of great impact and originality.
Daniele Sitzia's workshop are all hand-made, both in 750 gold and 925 silver, alternating general goldsmith techniques and traditional filigree: mountings, engravings, fretworks, horn and mother-of-pearl crafting, all made with great skill and expertise.
