Originally from Sicily but a Ticino native at heart, Eleonora Castagnetta, born in 1980, now lives and works in Ticino. She first encountered the area while studying at the Academy of Architecture in Mendrisio. Ticino, a land of bright, unique colors, suits Eleonora well and so in 2018 she opened the AnD – Arts n Design Studio in Mendrisio and created her own brand of contemporary jewelry and design for individuals, AnD SWISS.

I have always taken my inspiration from encounters with places or nature.
