Mafaldine pasta was made to celebrate the birth of Princess Mafalda. She was born in 1902 and she was the daughter of the last King of Italy. Mafaldine (little Mafalda) sometimes called reginette (little queens) are narrow strips of flat pasta with ruffled edges and are associated with great joyous celebrations.
The shape looks absolutely stunning in metal because the curves of the edges of the design give the flat centre section an extra dimension as the light plays off of it, making the piece almost seem alive. It looks as if it is rippling in a giggle as if delighted to be in contact with the skin.
This piece is made using 9ct yellow gold sheet and is completely handmade not from a mould and hangs from a flexible omega collar that adds a rich simplicity to the piece.
