Pol Bury Ring band spheres in yellow gold, 2001 18kt yellow gold ring 8 ex + IV EA cm. 2,4 (width) Marylart Edition   Pol Bury emphasizes movement as an essential element of sculpture, stressing that his works are not complete until they are set into motion. Working with stainless and Cor-Ten steel, he produced monumental balls that spin or roll, columns that rotate, and planes that slope, all operated by concealed manual mechanisms. The movement that he assigns to these sculptures is often a slow, imperceptible action that does not immediately register in the viewer’s eye. These jewellery pieces are only completed once worn, as the movement of the hand triggers the motion of the elements.

SUGAR RING

Meret Oppenheim Sugar ring, designed in 1936, executed in 2014  silver gold plated ring with sugar and white marble 3.4 x 2.5 x 2 cm numbered Gems and Ladders edition ‘I love natural materials. But everything man makes is nature, even plastic, even the atomic bomb,’ Meret Oppenheim observed in an interview with Valie Export in 1975. The sugar ring, which Meret Oppenheim designed in the mid-1930s, is an absurd and delightful combination of artifice and so-called nature, of opulent and cheap materials. The throwaway and frangible sugar cube is elevated to the status of a lasting, precious stone; an edible material is made wearable. At any time the wearer can exchange the cube for a fresh ‘jewel’.

Ania Guillaume Ginkgo, 2018 silver and yellow gold plated ring hand finished and signed unique 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 elegant dialogue within the wearer and nature. The first wearable art pieces were made in 2011 in gilded bronze and later she moved to silver gold plating.

Jacqueline de Jong Pommes de Jong, 2017 shrunk potato, sprouts, 18kt yellow gold plated ring 4 cm tall unique ref. R5 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.
