“Fall in the beechwoods” collection


Fall made its second attempt this week. A cold northern wind whipped away the still prolific stormy clouds, and freezed the ground.

You know it’s time to turn on the stove when the cats curl up in donuts on your knees more than usual.

Life is slowly adapting to the new season.

– You no longer hear the chicks calling their parents for food in the mornings; owlets and owls took their place though: they’re the most active at night, when it’s all quite and there’s no sound to break the silence except for their voices.

For us, instead, things run faster than usual – deadlines, exams and boring adulthood duties I’m not gonna annoy you with.
A hiccup of events have filled the last couple weeks.
But now the water’s calmed and I can enjoy being at my computer again, typing a few words about what is next to come.

With warm sweaters and cinnamon spiced drinks, new inspiration comes arrogantly, screaming for a new collection.
Too many ideas take form and my hands can’t wait to turn them in silver.

All the merit belongs to the woods.
Last Sunday Adriano and I were finally able to spent the day in the beechwoods, looking for mushrooms, taking pictures, breathing the renewed crispy air.


As soon as I moved my first step on the forest floor – already covered in brown leaves-, I felt like my senses had woke up from a long flat night.

Oh, the relief when I realized summer’s gone.
Don’t get me wrong. I love summer, but there’s a time for everything, and I just couldn’t stand the heat and blinding light anymore.

Here begins the reign of moss, ferns and mushrooms.
After soaking in all the autumnal vibes I’m back at the bench.


Imperial and Polka dot jaspers will be the kings of the upcoming “Fall in the beechwoods” Collection.

So here it is, the first finished piece:

a simple textured look for the front of the necklace.
This beautiful cut of imperial jasper doesn’t need any cluttered details around.
Its concentric lines, similar to the growth rings of a tree, draw all the attention to the center of the stone – its marrow.
The stamped lines all around only enphasize the focal point of the piece.

On the back of the necklace a solitary deer walks his way through a serene night, stopping in the middle of two pines to look up at you, as if to say “follow me”- “I’ll guide you through the woods, where Nature conceals her most enchanting  creatures”.

Stay tuned for the next previews!

I wish you all a cozy fall, filled with pumpkin spiced everything and warm blankets.

See you soon ?

Hi and welcome! My name is Alea and I am the one girl behing Pluvial Fern. Everything you see here, every piece of jewelry, every photograph, every post, is the result of my work. My sincere hope is to transmit you those values and inspirations that are the deep engines that aninated Pluvial Fern in the first place! ~ I've always love arts. Since childhood I used to spend a lot of time into wood working, book stitching, sculpting, painting and more. But being a full time student never allowed me to deepen in one of these crafts. This was until I "accidentally" discovered metalsmithing: it was love at first sight; a whole new world of opportunities unfolding in my yet inexpert hands! Being a 100% self taught maker, it was extremely tough at the beginning, and - I'm not gonna lie - frustrating once in a while. But after months of researches and over a year of practice, I finally managed to become familiar and master this medium. That's how "Pluvial Fern" was born. Fine metals and natural gems are the most duttile materials in terms of possibilities and allow me to transfer my love for wilderness and Earth into wearable art. It's exactly because of my love for the Planet, that I donate 5% of my annual income to nature conservation! My hope is to give you the best experience as customers, as well as to leave you with a piece of jewelry that communicates the passion and gratitude that went into creating it. And maybe, that tiny treasure will act as a reminder of the astounding beauty of Nature that we're all so intrinsically connected to.
