Ania Guillaume Butterfly Wings, 2018 Titanium ear cuff 7.2 x 3 x 1.5 cm circa Unique   Butterfly Wings is an exemplary series of Guillaume’s examination of elements of the natural environment, translated into wearable art. In sculpture as much as in wearable art, there is a strong perception of the spiritual natural universe. Flowers or animals are designed within the shape of the jewel and, once worn, they create an intricate dialogue between the wearer and nature. Known for their fragility, the delicate attributes of butterfly wings are juxtaposed in its materiality. Casted from delicate carvings into thin wax, the titanium earcuffs still play with our perception to materiality, as the incredibly lightweight jewellery pieces gleam in their chromatic spectrums, and firmly wrap around our ears. Feminine and beautiful, these reflections of elements of nature become an elegant statement piece to our everyday fashion.

SNAKE EAR CUFF

Meret Oppenheim Snake Ear Cuff, designed in 1936, executed in 2014 18kt gold ear cuff with tsavolites 7.8 x 4.4 x 1.2 cm Edition of 88 Gems and Ladders edition   A small snake embraces the wearer’s ear, not as a passive adornment but an active creature that looks back at the viewer with glinting green eyes. Meret Oppenheim delighted in the annual carnival celebrations in Basel; she collected traditional masks and made costumes of her own, with an interest in how the wearer could be transformed. Here the person wearing the snake ear cuff may take on the sinuousness and stealth of the reptile. The snake’s narrow tail wraps around the ear, as can be seen in the illustration of 1936, a gesture that is protective yet a little menacing. Courtesy of the Artist and Gems and Ladders
