The fine jewellery designed by Carlos Cruz-Diez allows us to carry on our hands or neck small Physichromies where the colour comes and goes, evolving in space as we move. Whilst in Chromointerférence pieces the jewel generates wave motions when it is manipulated.

Kendell Geers Speaking in Tongues (Stella Maris), 2011 The 2011 collaboration between Kendell Geers and Elisabetta Cipriani resulted in three different iconic pieces that convey the characteristic intensity of the artist’s works. Speaking in Tongues (Stella Maris) is a rosary which is worn as a necklace. It is made of female nipples cast from a live model and put together in the classic rosary format. Speaking in Tongues reveals the hidden symbolism of femininity in a rosary.  

Ruote

Fausto Melotti Ruote, circa 1985 18kt yellow gold necklace Edition 5 of 20 Rejecting the traditional sculptural emphasis on volume and form, Fausto Melotti’s sculptures are de-materialized, penetrable and incorporate the empty space that passes through them. Emphatically geometric and rhythmically balanced, these works fuse Melotti’s love for mathematics and music. They have rigorous geometric proportions based on the golden section of base/height ratio and harmoniously combine straight lines and curves with concave and convex forms to create a sense of musical “counterpoint”. The jewels created in the 1980s carry the same pioneering, new genre of his modern sculptures.

Foglia (Leaf)

Giuseppe Penone Foglia (Leaf), 2011 “The imprint of the skin, the lines of the hand, nails and veins draw, literally and metaphorically, a network that links us to the leaves and trees, water and stones, animals.” – Giuseppe Penone 
Giuseppe Penone, member of the Arte Povera group, throughout his career explored the connections between natural and cultural forms. In the early 1970s the artist used his body as his principal subject, projecting images drawn from the surface of his skin on to plaster casts of his face or on to wall surfaces. The connection between man and nature is also transferred into the collaboration project with Elisabetta Cipriani resulting in Foglia (Leaf), a necklace of a twig and a pure gold leaf with an imprint of Penone’s palm.
