PRODUCT STORY
Cristina says: Throughout the years I narrowed down my passions to three very beautiful and unique materials. Wood, resin and metal. I made furniture and learned an intense trade using these three elements. But furniture was so... big. I wanted something more intimate. So I went smaller, a lot smaller! And that was the birth of the first Modica Design line back in 2005. I continued to grow and experiment with new materials but I was always most satisfied with the original three.

The wood provides warmth and texture while the resin, provides light and color. Together they create a unique dialog between contrasting worlds. Natural meets man-made. Opaque houses translucent. Warm collides with cool. The union of materials along with my commitment to high-quality, handcrafted jewelry is what gives this piece a fresh, contemporary elegance.

Man made and natural materials are juxtaposed in this elegant necklace. We agree with Cristina, the artist, who says the materials "create a unique dialog between contrasting worlds." What do you think?

I love the concept, and the parts with the bamboo, but the chain looks to be low end with the big gaps on the links.

I really like the design but it's much, much too short, and the mixed metal is concerning regarding quality/discoloration. Sterling or gold would have been great.

This necklace is so pretty and versatile! It could be worn at any age and could compliment any style! The materials and colors could be worn in all seasons. It would look beautiful with a maxi dress as a few others commented, and I could also see it worn with a turtleneck or white t shirt...love it!
