Hi everyone, my name is Federica, from Italy. I'm 36 and I live near Milan.
In the past I've worked in fashion as stylist and fashion writer, I'm now an Art consultant (Contemporary Art) My favorite hobby is jewlery making, I support my passion selling my pieces online and at crafsters' markets or comics fairs.
I have an amazing boyfriend, Davide. He's younger than me, he's a motion grapher and visual artist. We are togheter since 2006, we have no kids.
I consider myself very openminded and without prejudices except in confrontation of people of extreme right wing. I confess I can't stand their ideas and behaviours.
I like travelling, reading, crafting,clubbing,playing videogames, surfing the net and learn a new thing every day.
I try to do my best to preserve our planet, I really hate the fact that in the name of globalization we are losing the sense of local products, this really touches my heart, I can't undertsand why I can find cherries from Argentina in the winter and oranges from Israel during summer...this is just a way for waste money and penalize people, productions and territories!
I have an insane passion for Piranha Plants and all th Mario Bros' charachters. I also have a Piranaha Plant tattoed on my right arm and I wish to complete the arm with Mario Bros' inspired tattoos
I like anthorpology, I love to learn about religions and traditions from all over the world, I'm quite into alchemy, jewish magical culture, history of tarrots and pagan beliefs.
I love crafting, thanks to this website I discovered that I love making matchboxes and ATCs. My favorite craft is jewellery, I love to spend time looking for new materials to use in my crafts. I think my favorite things are charms, trinkets and miniatures.
