Jacqueline de Jong Pommes de Jong, 2017 Shrunk potato, sprouts, 18kt yellow gold plated earrings 11 cm long Unique ref. E3 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.

Medusa

Rebecca Horn Medusa, 2017 22kt yellow gold, ammonites earrings 6.9 cm long Unique This jewellery project came to life through collaboration between Rebecca Horn and Luisa del Valle, a noted goldsmith living in Spain. After months of research, del Valle sourced rare stones, shells and ammonites to develop the concept of movement and energy central to Horn’s work. Each piece is unique, hand-made and exquisite crafted by del Valle through the ancient Etruscan technique. As a result of their collaboration, this jewellery is a melange of antiquity and contemporaneity, timeless sculptural pieces in the form of rings, bracelets, and necklaces, which are deeply sensual. The spiral shape is present in all of these pieces of jewellery is one of Horn’s most favoured symbols and appears throughout her work.
