Reluctant to being conventional and limited, AVL always finds a creative and aesthetic solution. The jewellery pieces in collaboration with Elisabetta Cipriani flavour AVL’s entire unique brand of humour and irony. Five Pointed Golden Knuckle can be worn as a ring, but also can be used, if the situation demands, as a ‘weapon’.
Giorgio Vigna Sospeso 2014 18 kt yellow gold and oxidized silver ring edition of 5 signed and numbered “Suspended memory caged in the game between the full and the empty.” – Giorgio Vigna Sospeso (Suspended) is the first jewellery project – rings and pendants – created in collaboration with Elisabetta Cipriani in edition of 5. This project is a homage to Vigna’s Sospeso sculpture, which was commissioned for the “TRA. Edge of becoming” exhibition held at the Fortuny Museum, in 2011, during the 54th Venice Biennale. Re-imagined as a wearable sculpture, it celebrates day and night, fullness and emptiness, and the daily passage of time.
Rebecca Horn The Third Eye 2014 22kt yellow gold, silver, agata ring 2.6 x 2.6 cm unique and signed The jewelry project came to life through collaboration between the artist and Luisa del Valle, a noted goldsmith living in Spain. After months of research, del Valle sourced rare stones, shells and ammonites to develop the concept of movement and energy central to Horn’s work. Each piece is unique, hand-made and exquisitely crafted by del Valle through the ancient Etruscan technique. As a result of their collaboration, this jewelry is a mélange of antiquity and contemporaneity, timeless sculptural pieces in the form of rings, earrings and necklaces which are deeply sensual.
