I was born in Treviso in 1987. My compulsory education was business-oriented, after which I enrolled at the Faculty of Law. I worked in the family business for four years where I dealt with the after-sales service. However, since my teens I had always been enormously attracted to art, especially jewellery, a world that truly fascinated me. I have always believed that I inherited my artistic vocation from my great-grandfather, the sculptor, Toni Benetton, whose works have been a source of inspiration for some of my creations. It was in 2015 that I decided to embrace this passion and change my line of work. In 2016 I attended the Jewellery Design course at Milan Polytechnic's Poli.Design with Director Professor Alba Cappellieri. After completing the course, I did a two-month work experience at Mia’s Italy and in June 2016, I met my Maestro, Fernando Betto, with whom I took a basic and advanced course in goldsmith art. Working at the jeweller's bench has thus given me the means to express myself by creating. At the end of 2016, I founded my own brand, Cristina Fava Jewels. In March 2017, I participated in the "Percorsi Inversi" Exhibition held at the San Rocco Oratory in Padua with "Rosa del Deserto" (Desert Rose), one of my creations.
