  Monica Bonvicini Black Diamond Emerald Ring, 2014 18kt blackened gold band ring with 4.94kt diamond and emeralds Edition of 5 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.

Butterfly Wings

Ania Guillaume Butterfly wings, 2018 Titanium ring 5 x 3 x 2.1 cm Unique   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.

Ania Guillaume Ginkgo, 2018 Silver gold plated ring 8.5 x 7.5 x 2.5 cm Unique   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.

Pol Bury Ring band spheres in yellow gold, 2001 18kt yellow gold ring 8 ex + IV EA 2.4 (W) cm 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 Unlimited edition  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’.

Magma Ring

Liliane Lijn Magma Ring, 2013 Electroformed silver on cast silver band ring Edition of 10   Evocative of her visual abstractions and material manipulations, Lijn’s concept of the primal earth are finely tuned with the geological sciences. With these rings, they  resemble the same characteristics of the highly volatile liquid magma that keeps the planet alive and constantly rotating. This same magma that reaches the surface from volcanic eruptions, maintains the cycle of life and death, are drawn into continuous momentum of renewal and vitality that Lijn echoes in her Magma and Fossil series. The way these rings so fittingly encase the wearer’s hand engages in a very personal dialogue with Lijn’s motifs of the primal earth. In a very personal, meditative approach with these pieces, Lijn begins her pieces by moulding a clump of very hot wax around her hands to create such cuffs. The high temperature, although stung her skin, provided the malleable nature of the wax to manipulate the mass and resemble the magma of the earth. As technology has allowed her to work with a diverse range of materials in her sculptural work; instead of cast metal, electro-forming was used to carefully reflect the same earthen surface texture […]
