GiuFè

Giuseppina Ferrara, GiuFè, was born in Alcamo, near Palermo – Sicily, in 1978. She studied graphic design and graduated in scenography at the Academy of fine Arts. She moved to Florence, where she experienced the silversmith work through a period of apprenticeship in a workshop
and there she discovered her passion for jewels. She later decided to settle back in Sicily and became a teacher in primary school. In 2009 she founded GiuFè Jewels, a brand which connects all her passions and competences, therefore is a combination of art,
didactical work and luxury items. She focused on the organisation of creative and motivational courses for disabled students, where, in cooperation with not disabled ones, they can get over the physical and psychological differences thanks to the process of
art making. Experimenting and liberating emotions are the keywords of a tremendous work, the final product of which consists in the fusion of recycled and brand new materials that form a unique jewel and a starter canvas.
