I’m No Saint – Cristina Scabbia

Cristina Scabbia launched her first custom ring with Seventh Circle Artworks on Monday this week. A very exciting project that’s been in the making for just over one year. I went along to the Roundhouse in London to shoot some promos backstage at the Lacuna Coil and Paradise Lost show. The opening band, Katatonia, were already on stage, the venue filling up and as we went backstage, Cristina was wrapping up in an interview. Alex presented Cristina with her ring – the first time she would see it in person. The reaction was priceless as she jumped up and down with excitement, and ran around showing everyone in the band! Alex said that it was so good to see such a reaction of something he’s worked on, especially since all meetings were over email and Skype – due to such busy schedules and the fact Cristina lives in Italy. For the shoot, the only place we could find in the busy backstage area was in corner of the corridoor, by a fire escape!

Cristina Scabbia collaborates with SCA!

I love it when I can finally share things that have been going on behind the scenes. This collaboration has been a few months in the making with emails and conversations. Finally we can share it. Seventh Circle Artworks are now working with Lacuna Coil‘s front-woman Cristina Scabbia! So exciting! SCA have issued a press release with details of the collaboration. Cristina is excited to be on board and has already discussed great ideas for her collection; which will be the first SCA release for 2013, and taking on a more feminine style. Cristina says, “I LOVE skulls but it would have to be something different, definitely not biker style but more classy…with balls!” We met up with her before Lacuna Coil’s sold out show, in London’s KoKo venue, for her initial photo shoot – the decor and layout was perfect for her style; red & black, velvet and quilted leather. Very decadent. (view from the desk during sound check) The ‘Ace of Spades‘ ring is proving a popular design at the moment, as you would have read from my previous post with Pepper Keenan and the Down shoot. Cristina wears it in the above photo, but this one is […]
