Mazinèddas - beautiful pics become jewelry

Yesterday I went to a nice vintage market in Palazzo Gnudi, an old building in the city center of Bologna.Among the many different stalls, there was one in particular which caught my attention.
The owner of the stand was a beautiful lady from Sardinia.
She makes beautiful jewelry by using old pictures and simple strings. Each piece is different, unique and handmade.
Danile, the owner, does not sell to shops as her personal choice. She prefers to sell at market, see the faces of the people buying her pieces and establishing a relationship with them.
Daniela works from home, is based in Bologna and you can reach her at
(I bought from her a fantastic necklace with the pic of an old tree, the one in the last picture :)
