About the Artist
Award-winning jeweller Roberta Pederzoli from Quinta Essenza designs textured and tactile jewellery, recreating a sensation of fairy-tale elegance by delicately brushing colours over her work.
Her jewellery is a combination of Scottish landscape inspiration and Italian aesthetic sense. She is inspired by natural and organic shapes, in particular by lichens, wood and interesting forms she observes during her walks. The Scottish environment is an incredible and wonderful source of creativity; being born and raised in Italy, Roberta creates pieces where Scottish landscape inspiration and Italian style merge together.
Last year, Roberta was selected as one of 13 UK emerging jewellery makers for Shine 2021 by The Goldsmiths’ Centre in London.
Following a commission of medals by Perth Cathedral, Roberta recently entered a medal called “Look after the Land” to a competition organised by The Goldsmiths’ Craft and Design Council, also known as the Oscar of Jewellery, where she won a Bronze Award.
Her work has been selected, together with those of other makers, to support Perth’s successful bid to become the UK’s first UNESCO City of Crafts and Folk Art.
