Sissi Nidi (Nests), 2018 18kt gold threads with diamonds, sapphires, rubies and emeralds brooch & pendant 10.5 x 3.5 cm unique and signed   With an artistic focus of anatomical study in relations to environmental elements, Sissi brings forth new ways to interpret wearable art, as the pieces transform into a second skin of light and gold for the wearer. For her wearable art pieces, Sissi interlaces the symbolism of the bird’s nest with the anatomy of the human body. The artist’s creations are hand-made and embellished, yet delicate like her sculptures. Carefully interwoven and welded with gold and silver threads, decorated with precious gemstones, Sissi’s contemplative process re-imagines a sculptural piece of art to work in tandem with the single wearer. It was pivotal to Sissi to be personally involved with the production of her wearable art pieces. Nests draws its symbolism from natural nests which provide a safe place. Nests can be displayed as a sculpture when taken off, and becomes a sculptural work of wearable art that unites with the individual when worn.

Jacqueline de Jong Pommes de Jong, 2017 Shrunk potato, sprouts, 18kt yellow gold plated brooch 16 cm long Unique 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.

Ute Decker Rolling Waves in Moonlight, 2017 18kt Fairtrade gold brooch & pin 7 cm edition of 24 unique within the series initialled and hallmarked Part of the Calligraphy series   The wearable sculptures by the internationally acclaimed architectural artist Ute Decker are a meditation on the richness of simplicity. She sculpts space, movement, volume and a subtle texture into a carefully composed interplay of light and shadow with a richly evocative sense of space and story. This essential purity is typical of her work in its minimalism and attention to detail.

Nastro

Enrico Castellani Nastro, 1963 – 2016 18kt yellow satin gold brooch and pendant 8 cm pendant 41.5 cm chain Edition of 10 Signed and numbered Nastro (1963–2016) is an exclusive jewel made by Enrico Castellani from 18kt yellow satin gold that can be worn either as a brooch or as a necklace. Enrico Castellani is regarded as one of Italy’s most important living artists. Nastro (1963-2016) is an exclusive wearable art piece made of 18kt yellow satin gold. This wearable sculpture relates to the artist’s poetical engagement with the manipulation of surfaces and light, which is evident here in the elegant bending of a single gold strip into an intriguing anthropomorphic shape. Nastro has also a special meaning in Castellani’s personal life, as it was first specially made in 1963 as a gift for his partner at the time, a symbol of love that she has kept with her ever since. The piece embodies a more unconventional aesthetic than Superficie, a jewellery collaboration between Cipriani and Castellani realised in 2012, which exhibits the artist’s characteristic relief surfaces as seen in the Castellani celebrated series of work Superficie Nera (1959).

  Giorgio Vigna Cosmo, 2015 Hand-sculpted Murano glass, yellow gold leaf, and oxidised silver pendant/brooch 6.5 cm diameter Unique and signed Giorgio Vigna’s unique jewellery is the essence of natural elements in their most primitive and primordial state. They are geological adventures of earth and water, fire and wind, light and shadow, which form the basis of the artist’s research. The natural and the artificial, the macrocosm and microcosm meet and collide and are defined through their opposition and contrast. The unique necklaces are made with Murano glass, oxidised copper, silver, and gold leafs.
