Born in Florence, Elsa Peretti's first introduction with her collection began at Tiffany and Co. in 1974. During that time her collection debuted to high acclaim. Her inspiration in jewelry making came from nature with elements such as bones, beans, hearts, scorpions, snakes, teardrops, and sea shells. Peretti's designs are translated in a wide variety of materials, however her most popular designs are her works in silver.
