Giulio Paolini Atena Lemnia, 2016 18kt white gold bas-relief necklace with white gold torque 5 x 5 cm Edition of 8 Signed and numbered Giulio Paolini’s first wearable art project has been ideated around the idea of love. This gold bas-relief pendant is inspired by former installation of the artist ‘Sulla Soglia’. It represents a woman in Hellenistic style seen from behind, facing directly at the heart of the wearer. She is trying to trespass the threshold between the outer and the inner dimension, emphasizing the universality of the gaze as a bonding action This piece condenses the essence of the artist’s research that has always demonstrated interest in exploring the nature of images and the relationship between image and viewer. Through replication, fragmentation and citation Paolini often incorporates elements from the past into his artworks, thus establishing an artistic dialogue across times and styles.

Ania Guillaume Ginkgo, 2017 silver gold plated necklace Unique and signed Nature is Guillaume’s main inspiration: the subtle colours, the ingenious shapes, the amazing technical solutions.  Guillaume translates this inspiration, at the micro and macro levels, in her paintings and sculptures. Gingko is Guillaume’s one of a kind miniature wearable sculptures visually derived from the leaves of the ancient Japanese tree. The gingko leaf was purposely chosen by the artist not only for its singular beauty, but mainly for the its meaningful symbolism of longevity and wellbeing.When the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima in 1945, six Gingko trees were among the few living things to survive within a short radius of the blast site—and they’re still standing today. Thus, the Japanese regard the gingko as “the bearer of hope.” It is also known as “the survivor” and “the living fossil.” Guillaume first approached wearable art in 2011 using  gilded bronze, until the artist started moving onto gold plated silver and titanium, which proves to be much lighter, durable and with titanium more colourful. Each of Guillaume’s wearable sculptures are hand sculpted, sometimes leaving the artist’s finger prints on the surface of the work.

Jacqueline de Jong Pommes de Jong, 2017 Shrunk potato, sprouts, 18kt yellow gold plated ring 6 cm tall Unique ref. P3 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.

Ania Guillaume Ginkgo, 2017 Silver and yellow gold plated necklace Unique and signed   Gingko is Guillaume’s series of miniature, wearable sculptures, visually derived from the leaves of the ancient Japanese tree. The gingko leaf was purposely chosen by the artist not only for its singular beauty, but mainly for the its meaningful symbolism of longevity and wellbeing that is associated with the history of Acampora.  It was first designed in 2011 with gilded bronze, until the artist started moving onto titanium and gold plated silver, which proves to be much lighter, wearable, and more dynamic pieces of jewellery. With the artist’s interest in nature’s intricate spirituality, every unique piece Guillaume casts from wax takes form of hand sculpted gingko leaves then made into gold plated brass, as the elements of nature embraces the body in a sculptural fashion. Made in different vessels to wrap around the body, every unique necklace, cuff, and earring, brings a different level of elegance, vivaciousness, and beauty to the wearer.
