Due Respiri Necklace
Martinazzi’s Due Respiri pendant is a poetic evocation of two breathing mouths whose lips are not quite touching. Made from embossed and engraved gold sheets, this piece recalls the formal restraint found in classical sculpture while capturing the tension and vibrant energy that connects two human beings.
