About the artist:
Federica Sala has chosen to direct her educational and professional path towards those who want to combine theoretical aspects with technical, scientific, and operational elements related to the production of artistic artifacts. After earning her Bachelor's degree in Fashion Design at the Politecnico di Milano, she decided to specialize in jewelry design. She attended her fourth year at the Duncan of Jordanstone School of Art & Design in Scotland, in the Jewellery Design department. Upon her return to Italy in 2010, she became the assistant to the Italian artist Giorgio Vigna for three years, an experience that led her to explore and investigate glass as a material applied to jewelry.

In 2015, she obtained a Master of Fine Arts in Contemporary Jewellery and Body Ornament from the Alchimia school in Florence. From 2016 to 2019, Federica was head of the jewelry department at IED Milan, where she currently teaches Body Jewelry. Her work has been exhibited at the MAD in New York, the SOFA in Chicago, the ZIBA in Prague, the CODA in the Netherlands, the Castello Sforzesco in Milan, and in galleries across Europe and America. In 2015, her sculpture necklace True Lies was selected for the Stanislav Libensky Award for the innovative and experimental use of glass. In 2016, she won the Marzee Graduate Prize with the collection Unbearable Lightness. In 2017, the first piece of her new collection Portraits received a mention in the Professionals category of the Enjoya’t Award in Barcelona. In 2020, she was invited to the Design Without Borders exhibition and won the first prize in Collector's Choice in Budapest with one of her works. Her work is part of various private collections and is permanently exhibited in the Marzee collection in the Netherlands. Her innovative research on glass applied to contemporary jewelry and art is supported in 2024 by the Alexander Tutsek Stiftung in Munich.
