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 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.
