Gigi Mariani Ethnic, 2015 Silver, 18kt yellow gold, niello, patina, bracelet 10 cm diameter unique and signed     Gigi Mariani works with antique, almost forgotten techniques. Using niello, a blackener with the aid of sulfur, he conceals the preciousness of the noble metal. Under the application of heat, “blood clots” and cracks appear in the surfaces — making them appear marked by age. Mariani engages his instinctive approach of using the metal surface as a canvas, incorporating he expressive medium of niello, he interrupts that surface texture through his precise, geometric forms. In addition to precious metals, the basic materials of Gigi Mariani’s jewellery include iron, copper and brass. His incredibly sculptural and geometric wearable works of art have become a testament to Mariani’s incredible attention to materiality as both a goldsmith and visual artist.

Giorgio Vigna Sasso, 2015 Copper and silver bracelet Inner diameter 6.5, outer diameter 11.5 cm, height 5.5 cm circa Unique and signed   The use of copper for its aesthetic value has been linked since ancient times to the production of jewellery: fine examples are the pieces designed and made by Giorgio Vigna. All of these wonderful pieces have reference to nature: rocks, pebbles, stones, shelves. Incredibly light in weight, they become part of your body and naturally adorns it. Vigna manipulates copper in its multiplicity of variations in colour and oxidation. Over the copper, you’ll find layers of silver, gold, glass forming new forms that tell a story or reveal a new beauty of nature. Another originality of these pieces, is the presence of strong magnets that substitute the clasp or the needle. The brooches can be used on light fabrics as well as on thick coats and furs. They are also very beautiful as suspended pendants or buckles.

Ania Guillaume Gingko, 2018 Gold plated silver cuff Unique Ref. C5   Gingko is Guillaume’s series of miniature, wearable sculptures, visually derived from the leaves of the ancient Japanese tree. The gingko leaf was purposely chosen by the artist not only for its singular beauty, but mainly for the its meaningful symbolism of longevity and wellbeing that is associated with the history of Acampora.  It was first designed in 2011 with gilded bronze, until the artist started moving onto titanium and gold plated silver, which proves to be much lighter, wearable, and more dynamic pieces of jewellery. With the artist’s interest in nature’s intricate spirituality, every unique piece Guillaume casts from wax takes form of hand sculpted gingko leaves then made into gold plated brass, as the elements of nature embraces the body in a sculptural fashion. Each piece brings a different level of elegance, vivaciousness, and beauty to the wearer.
