No Rice, No Life.
No Rice, No Life was Bea Bongiasca’s first jewellery collection, described as a melange between Eastern Asian heritage and symbols of Western consumer culture.
The collection explores what is considered a treasure in different cultures: two opposing visions of preciosity that meet and juxtapose together.
Rice, one of the most important resources in Eastern culture and a symbol of life. Pearls, historically synonymous of wealth and social status in Western countries.
