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 cuff bangle is formed completely by hand from silver sheet. Each one is unqiue because it is made by hand and not from a mould. It can be made to fit any wrist size and can come in different widths of metal and is also available in gold.
Ths cuff is hallmarked sterling silver. It is 20mm wide. It can be worn with the opening at the front or the back as shown on the photographs.
