Monica Bonvicini Necklace, 2014 18kt white gold and rose gold necklace with 49 sapphires and 4 malachite crystals   Monica Bonvicini’s jewellery collection has been created in collaboration with VIERI, the fine jewellery brand based in Berlin. The collection is Monica Bonvicini’s very personal take on how to interpret jewellery. There is an underlying subtle humour in the pieces, as in the unpredicted grenades featured alongside the sapphires in the long chain. The key inspiration for the collection is based on a rejection of classical styles for open and inventive women and men. Personalities who dare to see jewellery as being about personal expression rather than just status.

Boucle de mer

Miquel Barceló Boucle de mer (Sea curl), 2007 18kt satin yellow gold 15 cm (D) Edition of 20 Signed and numbered The collection of Miquel Barceló came to life in 2007 through a dialogue between the artist and his friend Chus Burés. These pieces are linked to the artist’s iconography and in tune with his serpentine aesthetic of that time. Before the collaboration started, Barceló finished the altarpiece for the Blessed Sacrament Chapel in Palma Cathedral, Majorca; a magical world that drew life from the sea and plants. Out of it arose a series of jewels that writhes and swirls with the movement of the sea. The contours of the Boucles de Mer (Sea Curls), primordial in their irregularity, invite us to enjoy Barcelo’s majestic art in mini sculptural jewellery form thanks to Burés. Barceló made many test pieces out of variety of easily worked material – aluminium foil, cardboard and pieces of wax he shaped with his hand, leaving fingerprints that are reproduced in some of the jewels.

Nastro

Enrico Castellani Nastro, 1963–2016 18kt yellow satin gold brooch and pendant 1.8 x 30 cm long Edition of 10 Signed and numbered Nastro (1963–2016) is an exclusive jewel made by Enrico Castellani from 18kt yellow satin gold that can be worn either as a brooch or as a necklace. Enrico Castellani is regarded as one of Italy’s most important living artists. Nastro (1963-2016) is an exclusive wearable art piece made of 18kt yellow satin gold. This wearable sculpture relates to the artist’s poetical engagement with the manipulation of surfaces and light, which is evident here in the elegant bending of a single gold strip into an intriguing anthropomorphic shape. Nastro has also a special meaning in Castellani’s personal life, as it was first specially made in 1963 as a gift for his partner at the time, a symbol of love that she has kept with her ever since. The piece embodies a more unconventional aesthetic than Superficie, a jewellery collaboration between Cipriani and Castellani realised in 2012, which exhibits the artist’s characteristic relief surfaces as seen in the Castellani celebrated series of work Superficie Nera (1959).
