Ania Guillaume Ginkgo, 2018 Gold plated silver necklace 18 (H) x 14.5 (W) x 4 (D) cm Unique and signed Ref. P1     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.

Butterfly wings

Ania Guillaume Butterfly wings, 2018 Titanium necklace 29.5 (H) x 17 (W) x 4 (D) cm Unique Ref. N16     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 wearable pieces of earrings and necklaces still play with our perception to materiality, as the incredibly lightweight jewellery pieces gleam in their chromatic spectrums. Feminine and beautiful, these reflections of elements of nature become an elegant statement piece to our everyday fashion.

Articulation

Ute Decker Articulation, 2018 18kt 100% recycled gold neck sculpture, satin texture Limited Edition of 6 Signed – UK Hallmark with artist initials UD, 2019   The fact that there is no single way of wearing such a necklace piece, speaks volumes to the precision of Decker’s craft. Much in contrast to her later works, Articulation has become an incredibly geometric piece, that instead is sculpted for the wearer, it is a completely flexible and adaptable neckpiece. It is thereby completely dependent upon the personality, mood and active participation of the wearer, which makes it such an exciting piece to wear every time, never knowing what could be expected the next time it is worn.
