Time present and time past
Are both perhaps present in time future,
And time future contained in time past.
If all time is eternally present
All time is unredeemable
 / T.S. ELIOT
 
Is the past behind us, and the future ahead?
The present becomes instantly past the moment we mention it, past and present merge in every second we are aware of our existence, and part of the future, in turn, becomes the new present. 
The recollection of the past and the projection of the future are always present in our minds, when we act, make, express, and pronounce. 
Every piece we create embodies by nature these three phases of time: on one side the materials around us contain a history, both symbolic and personal, on the other every person transmits its own stories to the objects, giving them new meanings to make them personal, therefore they become part of its present projecting the future by expressing the past.
Every change in the material that we use with our hands implicates a tangible transformation in the material itself, its use.
In our making we still use ancient techniques combining and supporting them with new means and tools from our contemporary society. We create pieces projecting the future thus always referencing the past, both personal and global. 
Since ancient times jewellery is the object of adornment, nowadays it is also a representation and a reflection of our surroundings from a social, political, and environmental point of view.
In such a way a revolution of the objects is created with time an open vision able to regenerate the world of things: thus, honoring every moment of our existence, the past, the present, and the time future.
