Arnaldo Pomodoro was born in 1926 in Romagna, Italy. He first began in architecture and became well known for his sculptures as well as large bronze spheres. Time spent on larger objects made Arnaldo consider creating smaller and smaller items working his was into jewelry and even to minatures. By the 1970's Arnaldo began working with his brother in law Giancarlo Montebello creating jewelry. This business grew rapidly and the name was remembered as quality craftsman in jewelry through the 1970s.
