Brooch - Paper, wax, plants.
I cast jewellery and objects in steel and silver. It fascinates me that the pieces disappear, never to be seen again. They have undergone a process, independently,and this process has left traces.
Necklace – Brass, powder coating, silver.
The collection reflects upon natural aspects that are often modified or distorted by human intervention. The static jewellery compositions appear in full bloom, linked to parallel perceptions of what is natural and what is artificial in our surroundings. Each piece is made from hand-pierced brass sheets. The surfaces are then powder coated with layers of bold urban colours.
Brooch - Epoxy resin, plastic, plexi, steel, gold and silver.
My life-long interest in art, architecture and designing led me to create little forms. Those forms have the characteristics of jewellery, yet they are little artistic sculptures, or that is how I perceive them. Each piece of work contains a subject and in each one you can find my inspiration. The most important thing is form, which is expressed using different materials.
Necklace – Nylon, rubber.
Using new technologies combined with traditional craft skill and values, I create jewellery that is an exploration of materials and processes. My forms are inspired by structures of all kinds, from architecture to plant life to fibres and fabrics. I use CAD software to build virtual forms. The output varies and might be cast in precious metals, dyed or combined with other materials to create the final object. I aim to create elegant, playful and complex adornments that complement the wearer and engage the viewer.
Pendant - Silver.
The current collection "Balla" is a meditation on movement, a spatial mapping of bodies engaged in dance. Observing dancers, tracing their paths through space, translating the repetition and circular motion into jewellery. Simple circle forms in gold and silver wire are combined to produce more complex objects that hold within them the energy and geometry of contemporary dance. As the pieces are handled and worn, a choreography of light interacting with the wire framework is performed and new aspects emerge.
Brooch - Paper, Japanese lacquer, eggshell, seashell, silver, steel wire.
Miki Asai's jewellery is inspired by things without solid shapes, including phenomena such as reflections in puddles, haze and so on. Those fleeting and changeable phenomena portray the nature of everything in the world. Her aesthetics and concept is strongly based on the Japanese aesthetic that finds beauty in impermanence, imperfection, transience and ephemerality.
Necklace - Coral, red sequins, quartz stone, silk, iron wire.
"Aspecifiche Paillettes": the beauty in the representation of apparent fragility. Volume is found in the lightness of geometries composed of imperfect circles and squares, which is repeated, to build in the imagination different forms of nature. Accurate and organic necklaces and earrings are inspired by corals, peach trees in bloom, roses and ice crystals.
Ring - Silver.
Illustrated on two opposites - rational construction and the natural world - the pieces describe various moments of the interaction between two elements, which lie between integration, adaptation and suppression. It is a journey from the beginning of life to the triumph of the other: a give and take.
Necklace - Copper, bronze, pigments, patinas.
"Mapping: traces made solid"
Inside Out, Outside In, Upside Down, Piercing Through, Collapsing into a Trace.
Fugitive, elusive ideas on growth, space, absence and memory that attempt to manifest themselves into physical objects.
Necklace - Glass, gold leaf, metal chain, silver.
Dekel's wearable art jewellery shows creative thinking as well as correspondence with a long-respected glass tradition. This current collection focuses on a theme of transparency in organic structures and the appearance of water in nature. By choosing and combining multiple glass pieces, Nirit fluently emphasises strength.
