FORTE Beads is all about individual style - there is no right or wrong way to design your own - and to help inspire you I have chosen 6 inspirational and talented women to lend their own unique styles to the collection.

I asked Lauren Santo Domingo, Margherita Missoni, Carlotta Oddi, Leandra Medine Cohen, Mira Mikati and Marta Ferri to play online and make their perfect bracelet on our FORTE Beads Maker. I really love what each of them have created.

I have also added some FORTE Beads postcards, designed to reflect places or cities that have a special meaning for me and my brand. Florence, where my family business was founded in 1885; New York, where I studied and designed my first piece; London, the location of our Flagship store today; Forte Dei Marmi, the seaside town where I spent my summers as a child and the original inspiration for the FORTE Beads Collection  and two new colour combinations created especially for ISSIMO; il Pellicano and Mezzatorre.
