“Nocciolina” or “ Peanut ” in English , is a handmade little girl brooch which can indulge
your every whim and desire.
She can wear anything: from stylish outfits to vintage clothes.
She can put on her hat in the wrong place at the wrong time.
She can walk naked without scandals.
She can forget her shirt or skirt and no lost her charm, she’s the perfect gift for any occasion.
Her eyes will be an invitation to observe without judgement.

...Now available in my Etsy shop

Mojo Pins


“Medals, coins, military insignia.
Inspired by a fictional world
dear to our hearts,
Thought for you,
For your inspiration,
For your loose interpretation.”
These pins are dedicated to a wonderful and mysterious city: New Orleans, where lives our special ('cose she's really special!) friend Alessia, and to one of our favourite singer-songwriter : Jeff Buckley.
Every pins is unique: handmade embroidery linen in round metal frame; on the other side of coin there’s the trademark “La D” hand-stamped with textile colors (Now available in my Etsy shop).
I've just chosen "Grace" for soundtrack, so now i  want leave you a song:
the Animals 1964 hit version of the
"House Of The Rising Sun"
There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I'm one

My mother was a tailor
She sewed my new bluejeans
My father was a gamblin' man
Down in New Orleans

Now the only thing a gambler needs
Is a suitcase and trunk
And the only time he's satisfied
Is when he's on a drunk

Oh mother tell your children
Not to do what I have done
Spend your lives in sin and misery
In the House of the Rising Sun

Well, I got one foot on the platform
The other foot on the train
I'm goin' back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain

Well, there is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I'm one
