Sara Mancigotti (1987, Pesaro)

My journey into jewellery making and designing started several years ago when I was still living with my family in my hometown, Pesaro, in Italy. 

My mother used to design her own jewellery and get them crafted by skilled makers. I still remember the moment we were presented with the finished piece: I was amazed by the magic those artisans were able to do, turning ideas into something physical so beautiful and special. 

Life has led me through various and rather different paths. But, somehow, the desire of creating was always resurfacing. Right after obtaining my PhD in Environmental Engineering, in Scotland, I decided to follow that desire, that instinct, and move towards a new personal adventure. 

I spent years getting my formation in silversmithing, exploring its sustainable practice, driven by my previous studies and research in the environmental field. 

Then I decided to leave Scotland and I moved to Antwerp, centre of excellence for jewellers, with the desire to turn my dreams into something real. That's how HumbleForgeJewellery was born.


All my pieces are inspired by my personal journey, named after the people that took part in it. A journey that brought me from Italy to Scotland and then to Antwerp, following my passion for silversmithing, embracing a whole new life and the birth of a new me.


“You must be ready to burn yourself in your own flame;

how could you rise anew if you have not first become ashes?”
