About

scotta, adj. overcooked, overdone

Scotta is a collection of refined yet playful necklaces that evoke the handmade macaroni crafts of childhood. The irreverent collection pairs traditional pasta shapes with cast ancient bronze to create modern, geometric statement pieces that anyone can wear. 

Scotta noodle pendants are on a 20-inch drop-length black velvet cord with bronze lobster claw closure.

The oversized pendants are weighty, grounding you in their solidity. They can be worn with ease and their heft is pleasing to the touch.

Pasta, made of flour and water, is the ultimate simple comfort food. Bronze is a mixture of metals, primarily copper, and is approachable and elegant for everyday wear.

Because these pendants are oversize, they slip easily onto the included velvet cord or a chain of your choice. The pendants are finished in a micro-crystalline conservator's wax to prolong their life and limit oxide transfer to skin. 

These pendants were inspired by a professor of mine, who would often encourage us to "noodle around," or to experiment, to get wild, to try new things. It's fun to noodle around. 



THE REWARDS

 All rewards include shipping to the United States.

Thank you pro-fusilli for backing this project!

I'm a design student and this is my first jewelry and casting project, but I have three decades of pasta-eating experience and during those same three decades I've had a lot of experience in making weird things. This is my second Kickstarter project and I'm excited to be making something beautiful, durable, humorous, and that people will treasure for many years to come. Your support makes this project possible. 

Grazie, everyone!

Additional thanks are due to my videographer and model, Sarah Lu, models Hilary Short and Astha Thakkar, to my casting partner, Tiny Desk Customs, and to my Entrepreneurial Product Development Class at the University of Illinois in Chicago for supporting this project from the beginning. 

Risks and challenges

This is my first casting project but I'm working with an experienced manufacturing partner. I have successfully executed a Quickstarter campaign on Kickstarter and have the support of my Entrepreneurial Product Development class at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
