Besides glass, her creations feature the highest quality materials such as sterling silver 925, waxed cotton cord, leather, steel, resin.

With CO GLASS JEWELLERY Cosima is always trying to break the boundaries of glass, after having had a "traditional" training, she learns from every material, searching for a new technique every time one is perfected.

Her research is driven and effortlessly exploring the boundaries between art and craftsmanship.

CO GLASS JEWELLERY is a very young company, that was founded in the beginning of 2016, even though Cosima started her journey with glass in 2005, almost by mistake in Murano, Venice.

Since then her love and bond with the glass craftsmanship exponentially grew during the years, leading her to open her own atelier and workshop in Venice, Italy since 2006 at the age of 18. Cosima then moved to Amsterdam, Netherlands in 2009 and graduated at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Fine Arts in 2015.

With the help of Luca Bontempi that takes care of all the magic that happens in the website and all the marketing, the image of CO GLASS JEWELLERY is emerging fast from the glass jewellery crowd.

In 2016 CO GLASS JEWELLERY has been selected and took part to the Sieraad Art Fair in Amsterdam, Netherlands, and in 2017 is featured on Glamour UK for the months of May, June and July!
