Lost Wax

The meaning of a romantic name “cire perdue”

During the melting process, the wax is melted and poured away to make way for the metal, in other words it sacrifices itself for the love of the metal. With each wax can be made into a single piece, it is a monogamous love.

Once the delicate wax is transformed into vigorous metal, the piece is cleaned and finished to the finest detail.


By hand with love and dedication

Devi petti works mainly with the lost-wax casting technique (“cire perdue”), an ancient technique used in art and manufacturing that allows her to create sculptural forms with intricate details.

A living material

The maker works mainly with bronze, a metal alloy that she likes very much. It is a 'living' material that has a natural evolution, changing colour over time and in contact with your body, but with a little care and dedication it returns to its initial splendour.

Less, but better

Devi produces her pieces entirely by hand, slowing down production and increasing their value. 
Her pieces are mainly made to order, so as to avoid overproduction, waste and increase awareness.

You might wonder...

What is an ear cuff? Can I wear it without fear to lose it?

An ear cuff is a no-pierce earring that is worn around the outer edge of your ear.
It simply slips over the cartilage and gives a similar look to that of a helix or snug piercing.
To wear it pull your ear taught and slip the cuff over the thinnest part of the cartilage, on the outside of your ear. Slide the ear cuff down and rotate towards the inner ear until you have found a position that looks good and feels comfortable.
If you find the right position, you will not lose it!
