Maria Nepomuceno Vases ( Vaso Vida), 2021 Silver, 18 kt yellow gold, lapis, baroque pearl, oriental pearls necklace 5.5 x 7 cm (main silver sculpture) Edition of 10 plus 2 AP Signed and numbered “My first (virtual) encounter with Elisabetta took place on February 2020, a few days before the Coronavirus pandemic begins. It was incredible to feel the world changing radically throughout the creation process. In my perspective, those little sculptures became to me a symbol of a time when people hugged each other, touched each other naturally, without fear. As a jewel touches the skin. In this project where I created those wearable sculptures, the human body is the support. I can experiment the perfect meaning of the work when it integrates with the body landscape.Those microcosms are atavistically connected to the work I’ve been developing in sculpture. Beads, pearls, vases…As babies the jewels evoke their origin at the large mothers’ installations that I produced. I named Vases these necklace and ring series of works, because it symbolizes the feminine power, fertility, vital energy. Vases contain the mystery where life happens”. Maria Nepomuceno

Liliane Lijn Fossil Twist Necklace, 2019 Electroformed silver and gold plate necklace 70cm long circa Edition of 8 Signed and numbered Evocative of her visual abstractions and material manipulations, Lijn’s concept of the primal earth are finely tuned with the geological sciences. As humanity uncovers the remnants of past creatures, the cycle of life and death are drawn into continuous momentum of renewal and vitality that Lijn echoes in her Fossil series. The way these necklaces engage so fittingly with the wearer evokes a very personal dialogue with Lijn’s motifs of the primal earth. In a very personal, meditative approach with these pieces, Lijn begins her pieces by moulding a clump of very hot wax to create these ornaments upon the necklace piece. The high temperature, granted this malleable nature of the wax to manipulate the mass and resemble these earthen elements. As technology has allowed her to work with a diverse range of materials in her sculptural work; instead of cast metal, electro-forming was used to carefully reflect the same earthen surface texture reinforced into these necklace pieces. Fossil Twist Necklace is a testament to Lijn’s incredibly attention to materiality and form. In order to wear it we […]

The shape represents a pair of wings, gently encircling the neck. They are the wings of an angel or guardian, shielding the wearer from harm. They symbolise freedom, love and protection. The V shape […]
