Pedro Cabrita Reis B4, 2015 Gold plated iron bangle 7 x 13.5 cm Unique, signed and titled A letter to Elisabetta Cipriani Dear E, I was never attracted by jewels. I’ve told you this several times. In the end perhaps that’s why I’ decided to accept your provocation? Challenge? Invitation? Or perhaps you just knew that I wouldn’t resist doing something new, exploring most of all my limits, my inclinations, my prejudices and why not admit it, my fetishisms. During the process of making these pieces there was a somehow omnipresent, vague and yet entangling eroticism as if bending, twisting, welding was a caress.There is no difference in doing a jewel, a sculpture or a drawing. At least not for me. I’m a painter that, after all, does many other things but always with that strange but intense emotion of the first moment.With these bracelets, such a moment was the anticipation of the encounter between the metal and the body, the harsh and the gentle.Vitality of life comes of its contradictions, antagonisms, its permanent tension, a stream of clashes. In art, like in life, harmony is fragile in appearance, and, in the pieces I’ve created for you, gold and iron, light and darkness, […]

Giorgio Vigna Sasso, 2015 Mixed media, copper, and silver magnetic bracelet Inner diameter 6.5 cm, 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.
