Sissi Nidi (Nests), 2018 18kt gold thread pendant/brooch with diamonds, sapphires, rubies and emeralds 10.5 x 3.5 cm Unique and signed With an artistic focus of anatomical study in relations to environmental elements, the artist brings forth new ways to interpret jewellery, as the work of art then transforms into a second skin of light and gold for the wearer. Sissi interlaces the symbolism of the bird’s nest with the anatomy of the human body by having the entire project completely handmade by herself, creating an ornate ring, a pair of earrings, and brooches that re-transforms into pendants. These embellished, yet delicate pieces act like sculptural works of her own. Carefully interwoven and welded with gold and silver threads, decorated with precious gemstones, Sissi’s contemplative process re-imagines a sculptural piece of art to work in tandem with the single wearer. It was pivotal to Sissi that she was personally involved with the crafting of Nests. Her hands-on experiences reflected in the handcraft deeply incorporates her conceptualisation of the delicate works of art as an extension of herself and of the wearer. Nests draws its symbolism from natural nests which provides a safe place and is transformed into a second skin […]

BONE NECKLACE WITH MOUTH

Meret Oppenheim Bone necklace with mouth, designed 1935–36, executed in 2014 18kt gold burnished 21 x 22.5 cm x 44 cm Edition 17 + 3AP Signed and numbered Gems and Ladders Edition Meret Oppenheim designed and commissioned the bone necklace with mouth in 1935-36. The original brass prototype is in a private collection, and the necklace is now realised from cut gold sheet. This necklace shows Oppenheim’s ability to collage materials and subjects: at the centre of the defensive row of bones is a feminine mouth. Collage was the perfect Surrealist medium and this piece also illustrates one of the artist’s lasting themes: bones featured in works throughout her career. Take for example her self-portrait of 1964 X-RAY of M.O.’s Skull (M.O. 1913-2000); the x-ray image suggests that the viewer might see the artist’s essence. Meret Oppenheim, however, teasingly pre-empted her own death in the work’s title and hid behind her earrings, rings and necklace, the metal objects that would endure for many decades thereafter.

Ginkgo

Ania Guillaume Ginkgo, 2018 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.
