Girls we love is a collection of stories about a wild bunch of super women (girls we, obviously, fell in love): from the dearest friends to successful coworkers, students and mentors, influencers and followers. Stories of conscious women we appreciate for being inspired and inspiring every single day.
SAY HI TO MARGHERITA RONCORONI
TELL US ABOUT YOU AND A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR LIFE AND CHILDHOOD
My name is Margherita, I am a 29 years old goldsmith. Four years ago I created Thin Things: a jewelry brand characterized by simple and geometric lines. I always felt an attraction for jewels -like having new ones to wear- since I had the chance to discover the magic of combining handcraft and creativity: it was love at first try!
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE BREAKFAST?
I have to admit that I am quite repetitive with my breakfast’s rituals: it is my favorite meal and sometimes I would like to change my routine. Coffee is compulsory lately, and it comes with a large bowl of greek yogurt with cereals and kiwi or any other seasonal fruits.
WHAT DOES A TYPICAL DAY IN YOUR STUDIO LOOK LIKE?
Once I arrive in the studio, I check which orders I have to fulfill: in the morning I usually arrange shipments and answer to tons of emails. Almost every day I have to visit my suppliers who, fortunately, are very close to the laboratory, to buy new materials. Once everything is set, I can finally start working with my hands, adding pieces to the collections that I keep in the studio or starting to draw new custom-made jewels for new projects and clients.
YOUR PROFESSION REQUIRES PATIENCE, PRECISION AND A BIT OF STRENGTH, WHICH QUALITY DO YOU LIKE THE MOST?
Precision. It allows me to do a clean job without weighing too much on the final aesthetics: I start every project defining its boundaries and the acceptable margin of inaccuracy depending on the final output.
ANY CLOTHES YOU WOULD NEVER WEAR?
I would never wear a total denim outfit. I would never match a pair of jeans with a denim jacket, both things that I like very much and use a lot, but only with other clothes.
LET’S BREAK DOWN A MYTH ABOUT KNITWEAR
I used to associate knitwear with sweaters and hats, without considering that it fits to other clothes like trousers, jumpsuits or dresses. I often wear knitwear to work in the laboratory, because of its comfort and excellent fit.
