Sissi Nidi (Nests), 2018 18 kt gold threads with diamonds, sapphires, rubies and emeralds, pendant /brooch 10,5 x 3,5 cm Unique Nidi (Nests) is a project entirely handmade by the artist and consists of a pair of earrings and two pendants that can also be worn as brooches or displayed as sculptures. Inspired by the idea of a safe place, these wearable sculptures like the natural nests, embrace the life and the body of the wearer. The gold pendant finds protection over the heart and when worn as a brooch, finds its peace between the branches of the ribs. Manual ability is central in Sissi’s work: she delicately intertwines and welds gold and silver threads with coloured stones and twists hand painted enamelled strips to make a new skin that represent an extension between her work and her body in the space. In the artist’s practise, everything starts from a small element that grows and develops in different forms. This flow take shape from the soul of the artist and is articulated from the body with a potentially infinite form.

Jacqueline De Jong Pommes de Jong 2017 Shrunk potato, sprouts, 18kt yellow gold plated brooch unique 16 cm long ref. B2 Pommes de Jong is an ongoing project that came to life in 2007 in Bouan (Bourbonnais, France) where in the mid 1990’s de Jong and her husband decided to buy a house. She created a vegetable garden and they planted potatoes in memory of the lack of food during the war. De Jong stored the potatoes in a 13th Century cellar and suddenly realized that she was fascinated by the huge amount of sprouts that were growing from the shrunk tubers. When de Jong was asked by a jewellery collector to make a jewel for her, she thought that she might do something with these shrunk potatoes and their sprouts that were getting longer and longer. Pommes de Jong were inspired by the idea of transforming a humble object into a precious one. In the realization of the wearable art, the potatoes and their sprouts are dried slowly by the artist over a period of two years and are submerged in a bath of platinum or gold becoming exclusive pieces of wearable art.
