OSSIDABILE IS LIFE, PASSION, HISTORY
In 2011 Gianluca Bertacche decided to create jewels that can tell stories about people.
His passion for the underwater world was the motivation to draw the first models.
Ossidabile participated to Dema Show in 2012, enjoying an incredible success which lead right away to a global distribution, thanks to the partnership with DAN Foundation.
Starting with the early 20 models, in 8 years Ossidabile has expanded its collection to more than 200 pieces. We deliver worldwide and, from the beginning, we support the Morogoro Mission in Tanzania by donating 5% of the total online proceeds each year.
We followed this path along with associates, friends, who brought their own experiences and competencies in Ossidabile. The financial side is handled by Costantino Stefani, an investor who knows of idealism, a traveler, dreamer and sportsperson.
The brand creation, creative direction and business ethics are conceived by Jean Charles Carbone, a musician, producer, creative, who brings together concepts and emotions.
Market-opening strategies are treated by Mauro Pezzato, an enthusiast and energetic person. Communication Editors are Marco Crivellaro and Alessia Crivellaro, two siblings who take care of the social networks and photography, the core of our coordinated image.
CREATION OF JEWELS
The first step is to design the piece. Our inspiration comes often from nature, but also from our imaginary, drawings, photos, or even sensations and simple daily events. Still, the most beautiful thing is to realise jewels that you suggest us.
When we catch the idea, we work with the modeller who creates the 3D model on a computer.
After this, the first model called Master is created.
The Master is primarily created with wax, by hand. Then it is inserted in a chalk cylinder and put in a furnace, where chalk solidifies and wax melts, dripping out of a small hole.
This process allows to obtain the mould.
Through the hole from which wax dripped out, liquid brass at 950 degrees Celsius is poured in the cylinder. Once it solidifies, the chalk crumbles and the wastes are eliminated with a high pressure water jet.
This second step is the creation of the Master model that will be accurately polished by hand and milling machines.
Once it is polished, the Master model is inserted in a silicon rubber, in order to be vulcanised. The internal part of the rubber takes the form of the model.
Next, the rubber is cut in half. The Master model is now impressed on the inside of the silicon rubber.
Subsequently, pressured wax is injected into the rubber.
Each piece will be created from the wax model extracted from the silicon rubber.
Each wax model will undergo the same process of the Master. This time, bronze will be poured instead of brass.
After the creation process, the bronze jewels are manufactured and polished, before the last step, galvanisation.
Each piece will be later supervised, and then it will be ready to be shipped in our lightweight paper bags, thus totally avoiding the use of plastic.
All processes are made km 0 by expert artisans who are carrying out this activity in years in the Veneto region.
Look at the video of the entire production process of Ossidabile jewels.
Victory is the Ossidabile line with elements in bronze and recycled plastic.
It is a special project, a mission for us: to give a new life to disused swimming pool lanes.
The first bracelet in the world made with recycled plastic from disused aisles.
What do we do? Let’s turn a global problem into a Victory.
An innovative project entirely Made in Italy, which will soon involve the other Ossidabile collections as well.
A responsible choice that combines passion, creativity and attention to the environment.
A victory, for everyone.
