Joy BC Serpente (Immeasurable Time), 2022 Recycled silver, recycled 18kt yellow gold, triangular trillion 0.3ct cut diamond and old cut 0.43ct diamond. 3cm long 2cm wide Size 54 Edition 1 of 3 + 1 AP Hallmarked, numbered and signed   The serpent, or snake, has been on earth for at least 100 million years. It occurs on all continents, some 3000 species. Across cultures and epochs, the snake is a powerful symbol which has been both feared and revered. In Alchemy, the snake appears as the ‘ouroboros’, a snake eating its own tail, representing the unity of all things. The ouroboros refers to the mystery of cyclical time, which flows back into itself. The late poet Claudian described the ouroboros a surrounding a cave of ‘Immeasurable time’. In the ancient Egyptian myth of the journey to the sun, where time itself is created, there is Apep, a giant water snake. Whereas in ancient Greece Ophio is a male serpent impregnated by the primeval divinity Eyrynome, who bore a cosmic egg. Demeter even had a chariot drawn by serpents. In this rendition, rather the swallowing its own tail, the snakes head contains a modern triangular diamond, and the tail is wrapped around an […]

Faust Cardinali Schèi e Osei, 2018 Silver, 18kt yellow gold, 1950’s 5 lira coin, diamonds, synthetic rubies ring 3 x 5 x 3cm Unique and signed   Cardinali moulds this new series of rings in relation to the 2018 project called ‘ Schèi e Osei ‘ (meaning ‘money and birds’, from the Veneto region dialect), where the coin, a 1950 lira, has seen as an opportunity to shape the idea of an archaeological inverted material; in other words, the artist, wants to focus on the symbolism of the object, which will change nature and become a jewel or a piece of wearable sculpture that blends different topics and subjects. This mutation will give birth to new bodies and entities. The coins are convexed by the artist to give a political idea of ‘beating a-new- coin ‘(battere moneta) and most importantly not from the national mint. The 2018 ‘Schèi e Osei ‘is a series that symbolically transmutes the ‘Object Trouvé’. The materials, such as aluminium, gold, and precious gems live together with the history of the chosen coin. His works always focus on the alchemy of the materials and the need to create metallic objects where the precious marries the ordinary […]

Giampaolo Babetto Anello, 1995 18kt white gold and pure amethist ring Unique and signed Giampaolo Babetto’s work reflects contemporary art movements such as concrete art, minimal art, kinetic or pop art in a unique, purist and plastic manner. His pieces are immediately recognisable by its simple design. He is inspired by the architecture of his homeland, by Palladio’s villas, and by the geometries in which he finds poetry. His jewellery is innovative in concept. Made up of different abstract elements, broken down into modular units, or rendered moveable through the use of ingenious links, Babetto’s works are like small architectural pieces or small sculptures. Babetto prefers working in gold due to its stable malleability and its warm sheen which he combines with unconventional materials such as plastic or glass, ebony, dusting the internal surface with a velvet-like pigment in luminous primary colours of reds or blues or using enamel and age-old niello-based techniques. These materials are used as highlights and contrasts in works of increasingly pure and essential geometrical forms that have come to characterise the Padua School.
