SPECIAL INSERT OF HUESERS

THE JEWELRY DROPS


EDITOR’S LETTER

SUMMARY

Young artists and designers with a common deep interest: telling their own way of seeing the world through jewelry. This insert in the Huesers magazine is therefore an in-depth analysis on artist’s jewelry. Different for nationality, cultural background and also in the materials and working methods, they carry out a personal research on the world, that is presented as a series of Drops. The research starts exactly from the daily life, from the analysis of the historical moment we are living in, as in the work of Phoebe Dao (United Kingdom), which takes the symbol of the last two years, the surgical masks, and brings them back to art. There is also a deep interest in the human body, among those who look for a connection between this and the jewels. Bianca Kazor (Germany) blends precious stones with a geometric design while Maria Gabrieleva (Canada) processes a flexuous research in her bracelets, that wrap the wrist with a natural material, wood. Or again, like the curves of the unisex jewels by David Miralles Alberola, which proposes aerodynamic models able to speak with marble. On the other hand, there are those who search for different materials and textures, incisive and sharp, that bring back the complexities of the psyche in objects, such as Réjane Pratelli (USA). Margaret Greenhill (Chile) instead tells stories that would otherwise be lost with time, like the jewels of Marek Husovský (Slovakia) who tells unique stories in unusual handcrafted jewelry. The wearable art, the jewel that becomes a sculpture, like the works of Simona Mele (Italy) or Joey Rose Cardoso (USA), able to alter the body and distort it to create a new vision. Each artist has a QR code that allows those who browse these pages to connect immediately to OVERJEWELS.com, the first social commerce dedicated to jewelry’s professionals. Through the platform you can stay up to date on the artist’s news and proceed with the purchase of jewelry.

On theWay to Blue

The Ouroboros is an ancient symbol depicting a serpent or dragon eating its own tail. Originating in ancient Egyptian iconography, the Ouroboros entered western tradition through the Greek magical tradition and was adopted as a symbol in Gnosticism and Hermetism and most notably in alchemy. The Ouroboros is often interpreted as a symbol for eternal cyclic renewal or a cycle of life, death, and rebirth. I have paired the Ouroboros with raw Australian boulder Opals.

This 58-year-old artist is an engineer. She has been creating jewelry since 2019. Yes, this is a short time for a jeweler, but a huge time for a person who has found her vocation in the second half of her life. She creates jewelry using metal clay technology, because that allows her to sculpt jewelry with her own hands, breathing a piece of her soul into them. Her jewelry is, first of all, the style of a big city with its speed, eternal movement and the desire not to go unnoticed.

How does it feel to witness this miracle? Tenderness, boundless love, happiness, joy, the desire to protect from everyone and everything! This is a tsunami of feelings that drowns out everything else in us! And we are ready to do everything in our power for this new life, and even more. Because this is THE MAGIC OF LIFE!

We all have our own way, and we all search and find it by ourselves. Here you are alone, here you will not be prompted, no one will help nor choose for you. And even if you let them choose for you, it is still your choice, your path, your life line. You go from point A to point B all your life, and then to C, D, and so on. You are striving, making an effort to reach the next point. And your life line is no longer a line, but a curve, sometimes smooth and sometimes sharp.

It is springtime in the northern hemisphere. Raindrops fall from the sky as the fields are prepared for summer. Little flowers bloom in Minnesota, coloring and perfuming the environment. The tiny hairy four O’clock (Mirabilis albida) tenderly receive the raindrops, which gently slide to the soil. Life, then hiding from our eyes, is back to amaze us and feed the wild critters. Soon it will be summertime.

KAZUHITO SOMA /JAPAN antille.jewelry-offical.jp @antille_jewelry

He was born in Aomori Prefecture, Japan. We have launched a brand that makes wedding rings and engagement rings. Ever since he first saw the aurora, he wondered if it could be expressed in metal. One day when he researched a miraculous technique that no one could do and experienced many failures and setbacks, inspiration that he had never experienced ran all over his body and made a gradation ring called Aurora. He will never forget the events. He wants to spread it to the world.

1.

The color gradually changes from green gold to rose gold. In other words, the gold content varies depending on the location. The metal itself, not the plating, creates the gradation. In Aomori, apples are the best in Japan, so the motif is to express the wishes and thoughts of the wedding ring as they mature from green to red apples. The appeal of AUROA (gradation ring) is that it can be expressed so far just with metal.

2 . Fantastic color beauty for everyone. The color of the ring changes on a daily basis. Use and combine different colors of gold. Any combination is possible. The expression of color is infinite. The moment it receives the light, it emits a fantastic light. A ring that emits fresh green light or a ring that looks like the setting sun. There is only one piece of jewelry that has a meaningful color. 1.

Gina Melosi marries conceptual jewelry design with ethical principles and materials. Her edgy designs take risks, yet retain a sophisticated classicism, making items to cherish and wear season after season. The jewels often tread a thin line between delicate and dangerous, bold yet wearable, playing with contrasts of form, texture, color, and meaning. A fascination with the broken, overlooked and abandoned gives ready-made found objects new life in recycled metals and fair-trade gems.

The black gold side, embellished with deep blue stone accents, acts as a visual contrast to the bright gold side. The collier can be worn in several ways - either displaying both the dark, starry night and the golden sun, or just the night or just the day. It can also be worn reversed without the stones showing.

Art is a way of looking through different people’s eyes. That is why she loves so much to use it as inspiration for her pieces. Monet had a way of interpreting life through light and color. He portrayed his beautiful flowers in several paintings as blurred brush strokes and achieved to transmit that sense of peacefulness. The curves of petals and leaves mix with each other to sculpt the silver body of this ring around the finger. Delicate but hard at the same time, just as Monet’s painting.

Monet said that what he always needed were flowers, always; so he created a beautiful garden filled with textures and colors that inspired him to keep on painting. The colors, the lights and shadows, the reflections on the water that he captured on every brushstroke inspired her to make this collection. Specifically focusing her attention on his Japanese gardens, she took the fluidity of the lilies on the water to make these pieces (earrings and ring).

ANVIL FIRE AND TIME RÉJANE PRATELLI / USA anvilfireandtime.com @anvilfireandtime

A jewelry artist based in Virginia, USA, Réjane Pratelli is fascinated by texture and uses it to explore the complex human psyche and the pressure society places on women: we are supposed to present a flawless appearance no matter how broken we might feel inside. Her intricate, brutalist pieces are both appealing and disturbing. This is jewelry that is meant to reflect who we really are rather than who we are expected to be, a true, empowering extension of the self.

1.

In times of distress, it often feels easier to look for guidance in the obscure words of oracles and soothsayers rather than looking inside ourselves and find our own light. Heavily brushed and fused sterling silver shapes represent confusion and partially hide a vibrant golden citrine. Or partially reveal it. Just like you eventually choose how to interpret the words of the oracle, it’s always a matter of perspective.

Being alone is not a prerequisite to being lonely. Being trapped may be just a step away from being surrounded. Being physically close doesn’t always mean feeling close. We often feel lost in a crowd, surrounded by countless faces and mindless movements. But that might be the way for us to see ourselves as we really are, what makes us unique and beautiful. Loneliness ends when self-acceptance emerges. Being alone might be actual freedom.

But no matter how much we plan and try to bring our lives under control, the smallest stick in the cogs has the potential to wreak havoc and leave us utterly lost. Or bring new perspectives, serendipity and self-discovery. Understanding that perfection is an illusion. As painful as it is, the life cycle needs chaos to keep going.

1 . The brooch developed by Renate Erlacher consists of nine three dimensional squares seeming to be randomly put together, without being connected, because she did not want to solder them together. She constructed a frame in the back of the brooch, made of silver as well, with many little feet that got inserted into the three-dimensional squares, filled with red colored resin. This frame also acts as a closure. This way the construction is stable while still keeping its lightness.

He was born in Munich in 1963 and grew up in an artistic family. As he was not so good at school, he learned the metal trade, with an insight into a family of sculptors. He learned the basic requirements of forging and casting, and through this internship he was admitted to a silversmith apprenticeship. In 1989 he got a place in the Munich art academy. To this day he has been working independently in his own workshop and the development never stops because there is always something new to discover. He has been working with emaille technology for many years.

2 . Renate Erlacher loves to experiment with different materials, techniques, and shapes. And as she also loves to paint, she wanted to try out painting on metal with enamel as well. The ring she developed consists of a silver frame, oxidized, with a face painted with enamel and pigments on a copper plate. Even though the ring is rather big, through the delicate construction and the pastel colors it feels light and it is pleasant to wear.

He plays with different shapes until he is satisfied with the result, then he chooses the colors for the emaille process. He likes to orient himself to traditional ideas that he associates with painting. He tries to create a harmony between inside and outside. Sensitive craftsmanship is a kind of basis. Of course, first and foremost, the ring is a pleasure to wear without paying any attention to it now.

Actually he means about the same as with his other ring, in addition he is combining something that is reminiscent of old rituals and customs. Which he wants to hold on to in the form. Something that comes from another time when people still saw an unconventional sense in jewelry and made connections to a hidden world in which it was not just a matter of showing off. Maybe occult content that used to make more sense than it does today.

A structure of patinated brass wire is used to hold an organic bio resin form, subtle tones and gradation of pigment have been used to mimic the movement and depth found in natural bodies of water which the maker finds mesmerizing, stimulating interaction with the piece in much the same way as water can be gazed upon and new things discovered within is the impetus behind the making of the ring, to catch a fleeting glimpse or a moment in time to be immortalized.

2 . Enclosing bioforms within fabricated structures, the piece is formed by the interface between natural forms and manmade structures. The resin pieces are reminiscent of natural rock formations found within local landscapes. Mica and Rock Crystal pieces are held suspended within the forms, creating areas of light and schiller that respond differently in different light and environments imitating the ephemeral light to be found in nature. The piece is balanced between scale, weight and form.

Growing up all over South and Central America as well as the Caribbean, her methods of expression developed in multiple languages and perspectives from an early age. As an adult, this has also proliferated into the many inspirations, mediums, and materials used across her work. Through the pieces in this collection, Karen strives to create awareness of our society’s inherited throw-away culture by using found and recycled materials.

Every piece of plastic we’ve ever used is still in existence, long after it’s been thrown away. By using materials often found in garbage bins or littered in streets, Karen is able to give new purpose to discarded objects. One of the main components in this brooch is a used plastic straw from a Dunkin’ Donuts in NYC. In some cities across the world, plastic is already outlawed. What if this was the case everywhere? How would this newly rare material be perceived?

Karen’s found object pieces challenge us to question our relationship with our trash. Could we see our trash as something to be transformed and nurtured, even valuable? This ring preserves broken car glass found on the street in Queens, New York. Originally destined to be swept up by street cleaners or dragged down a drain, it is now immortalized as jewelry to be appreciated and adored for many years to come – in what she hopes will be a waste-less world.

Linea 5 necklace is the best representative of the entire collection. Its geometric appearance, provided by a rectangular shape, creates a sense of structure and order. The contrasting colors bring a sort of asymmetrical balance that makes the visual effect surprising. The mix of nylon fiber and silver fixtures creates versatility and an industrial look, which has never been seen before. The dualcolor U Earrings enforce the asymmetry further.

PHOEBE DAO DESIGN

A Vietnamese art jewelry designer. She studied MA in Jewelry in Birmingham, UK. She is passionate about the consequences of plastic pollution. Her work uses a mixture of recycled plastic, bioplastic and PPE to make bold, powerful pieces that aim to shock viewers with images of fossilized remains caused by human consumer indulgence. She believes we can use recycled plastic to make interesting and thought-provoking pieces that help make people think about their use of plastic.

/UNITED KINGDOM phoebedaodesign.com @phoebedaodesign

1 . This piece shows the impact not only of PPE but also of the problem of how plastic gradually breaks down into extremely small micro pieces that are then found inside the animal. The appearance of the piece looks like a bulletproof vest or a life vest and is thus a metaphor showing how people use face masks to protect human life, this having however a reverse effect in the seas, as it actually takes the lives of marine animals.

This necklace is a bold and elaborate piece that is made up of 5 separate pieces equating to the 5 great oceans of the world. Each connected but also separated. It is made to show that not only there is a growing problem of plastic pollution impacting the world’s seas but there is now the very real problem of PPE especially face masks having a catastrophic effect on the actual future and existence of marine life.

3 . This piece is about the endangerment and extinction of animals due to excessive plastic pollution. This is highlighted by the strong slogans used. Humans are acting in a reckless way due to consumer behavior. Another important aspect of the piece is that the box shape represents a shield that in addition to protecting us also imprison us in cells in which we encase ourselves. It is thus a manmade cage enveloping humanity.

4 . This somewhat complex piece continues the theme that humans are all criminals, who are not only endangering but also causing the death of precious marine life. However, this piece is a combination of a necklace and handcuffs. They are interconnected and joined together. The skeletal remains that are hanging from the masks represent the death and destruction that discarded plastic or polyester based PPE has on marine animals. 3.

This necklace represents a human hand that is inadvertently and slowly killing the seahorse it has captured. Overuse of protective equipment such as surgical gloves to protect people is actually affecting animal life in a very negative way. The necklace is worn in such a way around the neck that it somehow shows that we are killing ourselves also because of our reckless and excessive consumer behavior.

6 . This elaborate piece represents handcuffs. The pieces are interconnected and locked together. The clear premise behind the piece is that humans are all literally criminals who are responsible for the death of marine life; although they should be 29

punished, they are actually punishing themselves by killing a vital part of the food chain. It also shows that the marine animals have got stuck inside and have died inside the plastic packaging with a lot of plastic debris scattered around their dead bodies.
