Through art and drawing, Emanuela Stevanella wants to portray an alternative world, with no rules, prejudices, or rigidity.
She wants to let her creativity and her desire to communicate arise, transforming everything around her.
After her Art Institute diploma – specializing in Architecture, she attended stylist and modeller courses, became a makeup artist and graduated in Fashion Design at San Raffaele University. Then, she chose to follow her instinct and the communicative drive she felt inside her, dedicating herself to a project of her own.
This is how DesYou came to life: a brand of top-class handmade fashion jewelry, the outcome of a study that starts from the soul and gets to the materials. Thanks to DesYou jewels people can break free from stereotypes, overcoming rigidity and models, voicing themselves through pieces of jewelry that express force and identity.
Jewels and accessories are designed by Emanuela and entirely handmade.
Every single creation contains a message, telling a side of the character, a personality aspect, a part of the soul. DesYou jewels become interpreters of our way of being, helping us to know and to be known.
Every piece of jewelry speaks and gives emotions to its wearer. Every jewel holds a message.
Combining physicality and spirituality in an object, making the creative force interact with the many facets of the human soul, giving jewels the power to communicate. Behind every single DesYou creation there is an accurate study of sense and significance: from the choice of materials to the geometry of lines, from personal inspiration to conceptual evolution, inside these handmade creations there is a world made of dreams, hopes, passions, desires.
Her family heritage allowed her to carefully select the most appropriate raw materials to convey a message. DesYou jewels are made of exquisite materials and with innovative combinations. The artist chose to experiment, daring unusual pairings such as plexiglass and Swarovski crystals, pearls and natural gemstones, guardians of a strong symbolism.
