«Cheveu un bijou !!!» hurle la Dame de Coeur

«!Tranchez-lui la tête!!! Cheveu un bijou!!!» hurle la Dame de Coeur, dans Alice …

mais … faut pas se faire de cheveux dans la vie !! ici, on est à un poil du bijou ….. si ce ne sont pas des bijoux au poil !! ;-)

Au-delà du dégoût que peut susciter l’emploi d’un tel matériau (à la « grande époque » du bijou en cheveux, à l’époque Victorienne, mode lancée par la très romantique Reine Victoria, cet engouement eu un grand succès dans les pays anglo-saxons mais suscita du dégoût et un certain rejet en France et dans le reste de l’Europe), ce n’est pas étonnant, à mon sens, qu’il suscite tant d’attrait parmi la jeune génération de bijoutiers : à force d’interroger le rapport du bijou au corps, le corps s’incorpore petit à petit au bijou lui-même.

« Contemporary art is getting hairy Long and silky; short and curly. Blond, brunette, red or grey. It’s hair and it has an important part in our perceptions of ourselves. It defines gender and visual identity, and is playing an important role lately in art — in jewelry, drawings or in mixed media pieces. Hair has long had a role in the work of artists and artisans. In the Victorian era, creating jewelry from hair became almost as popular as knitting or crocheting.  By using one’s own hair or that of a beloved family member women were able to design bracelets, chains, rings and earrings. Apart from jewelry, mourners would weave hair into decorative, memorial wall hangings. By the early 1900s using hair fell out of fashion. During the past 15 years, however, there’s been a fascination among contemporary artists using skin, nail clippings, urine and hair to create various forms of art. Fascinated with Victorian hair jewelry, artist and jewelry designer Melanie Bilenker has revived the art form. Like the Victorians who kept lockets of hair and miniature portraits painted with ground hair and pigment to secure the memory of a lost love, renders the « quiet minutes, the mundane, the domestic, the ordinary moments » from her own tresses. Bilenker observes various daily activities such as cleaning, bathing, dressing, resting or eating. She chronicles the private moments by setting the camera’s timer and goes about her business which can be anything such as eating chocolate, writing a note or enjoying a Saturday morning breakfast. Once she has the photographed images, Bilenker creates tracings of the forms within ghem with thousands of tiny strands of her own hair – which are eventually fixed in resin.  She meticulously layers several different drawings to give the appearance of depth, one as foreground, another as background.  The entire process takes the course of about a week of laying hairs, mixing resin, and then allowing it to cure.  Says Bilenker, « Once the hairs are set as line drawings within resin, I shape, smooth and polish the exterior.  I then fabricate the jewelry findings and set them.  The piece is then complete. »" (Courtesy Melanie Bilenker and Sienna Gallery)

« Puisant dans la tradition des bijoux en cheveux, matériau depuis longtemps collecté dans des foires et marchés ou dans l’intimité des familles pour devenir parure, Ana Goalabré se joue de cet usage en coupant une de ses mèches et en y taillant une bague qu’elle envoie à un homme accompagnée de la missive «J’aimerais tant passer mes doigts dans tes cheveux». Cette phrase, appel érotique d’un corps d’artiste, devient le titre d’une série déclinant divers contenus aimants et sensuels, traditionnellement gardés jusqu’alors implicites au nom d’une morale et d’une bienséance rigoureuse et qui tout à coup semblent avoir gagné le droit de dire clairement le désir, qu’il s’agisse de celui d’une mère, d’un père, d’une amante, d’un amant… et ce dans toute sa trivialité. Pourtant, il n’y a aucune charge obscène dans ces bagues. Qu’elles soient très travaillées ou reprennent le mouvement naturel d’une mèche de cheveux, elles nous renvoient à nos jeux tactiles dans les cheveux de l’autre, en fixant le mouvement, image arrêtée puis détachée du corps pour n’en garder que la sensation. »

Rickson Salkeld   Rickson Salkeld – I am interested in the feminine ideal in relation to the female body.  I enjoy creating work that expresses my wish to both conform and  rebel against ideas of femininity. Through various materials and  processes I take from my own body both physically and metaphorically.  Hair can be used to comment on feminine allure and power, while  clear resin is used to symbolize an abundance of tears

maria ignacia walker - MFA JEWELLERY AND BODY ORNAMENTS Alchimia contemporary jewellery School 2013 - 2015: Maria Ignacia Walker – MFA JEWELLERY AND BODY ORNAMENTS Alchimia contemporary jewellerySchool 2013 – 2015 –   A simple fact of life that María Ignacia Walker obsesses over: The shedding of hair. The obsession – losing them, collecting them, ordering them, measuring them and archiving them. The desire – to preserve these losses – It gives rise to “transcendieron”.  The discourse is not about beauty and it is not about sensuality, not even about cultural symbols that hair carries.  How much hair do you lose constantly, everyday ? How many pieces grow out of your body and die every moment ?  “The transcendents” are a homage to the moments when you lose your hair. Captured and immortalized in the fragility of the porcelain, they give perpetuity and freeze all their expressions in the moment of their detachment from the body. With a threading method, the artist uses horsehair as connectors. They show the lightness, energy and freedom, while demonstrating the real, natural movement of the hair. Together with the act of keeping and protecting the hair in a porcelain form, they are given another life that keeps them present through their absence.

Bonjour & WELCOME ! :-)

Classé dans : Arcangelo BUNGARO (IT),nacre/coquillage,Non classé — bijoucontemporain @ 4:22

Passionnée de bijoux, admirative de tout ce savoir-faire, à défaut de savoir créer moi-même, je souhaiterais mieux faire connaître les créateurs de bijoux contemporains, partager mes coups de coeur, transmettre l’information quant aux expositions, lieux où rencontrer « du bijou » (galeries, magasins…), les « bouquins » à voir (en ce qui concerne les LIVRES sur le Bijou, voir mon « board » Pinterest )

(Jewelry BOOKS board on Pinterest)

Books graphics

La France n’est pas très « amie-amie » avec les créateurs de bijoux ! Elle a la « Place Vendôme », et puis ….

Comme le dit joliment « Quibus31″, un créateur de bijoux, sur le site de La Manufacture « en France ….il y a la cour des grands, la verroterie …. et le désert de Gobi entre les deux…. »

Il faut déjà savoir que lorsqu’on parle « bijou » il y a trois grands domaines : la joaillerie (or, diamants et pierres précieuses pour schématiser), la « bijouterie fantaisie » (généralement fabriquée en masse) et enfin le « bijou de création », fait, lui, à la main et en séries limitées. De plus le « bijou de création »peut être fait à partir de n’importe quel matériau, l’or, le diamant si l’on veut, mais aussi le papier, les plastiques, tissus, objets de récupération, etc etc  ….

Ici, c’est du « bijou de création » que je souhaite parler !

Peu développé et peu connu en France, parce que peu de galeries, à priori pas de formation spécifique « création bijoux » (parce que, tout simplement, à la base, il n’est pas défini, identifié, dans la liste officielle des Métiers d’Arts, ce qui implique beaucoup de choses : pas de statut, pas de formation, pas de Syndicat ou d’Association nationale, etc etc … on tourne en rond !)  pas de grande « messe » annuelle, pas de presse spécifique, et même dans la presse dite « féminine » il est rarissime de trouver mention de créateurs de bijoux !

donc, ta-taaam ! me voilà !!! :-) )

« in the brooches « Memoria Aperta«  ………..  the artist effectively tests the value of the memories that bind everything and everyone. In this collection, ceramic animals, porcelain dolls, sculpted ivory shapes, woods, glass, miniatures of old photos—unearthed, inherited, and collected relics—are mixed in with incredible reproductions in lost wax of shoes, dresses, tiny tools of daily use, mini-bestiary, and gems. Paganin weaves her thick net of information on a sort of genetic algorithm in which everyone can find their reflection. Each brooch, every necklace starts a story. It’s up to us to choose the plots. »  (By Silvia Valenti on  AJF)

Roxy Lentz

« Conceptual art jewelry from re-purposed metal, wabi-sabi and organic nature. »
LOVE this WILD aspect of her jewelry !!! ……….

Some new work that will be at « Wild Women Wearable Art » and « One of a Kind« .  (One of a Kind, The Mart, Chicago, IllinoisThe 2nd annual Spring Show returns April 28-30!)

« I make my jewelry from metal I find at the thrift store, silver plate trays, brass and sometimes bits and pieces I find while on walks. There is always a bit of rusty bolts and stuff in the bottom of my purse! I love to transform something others thought had no value into wearable art jewelry, you should see what I do with PVC I find from the street. »

Roxy Lentz earrings - processRoxy Lentz Jewelry  – process – The earrings with the first fire patina. If I wanted to keep these just like this, I would have to use cold connections. But, for these earrings, I need to shape them and fuse the ends together, so, some of this will go.

Roxy Lentz earrings - processRoxy Lentz earrings – process – The finished earrings. I filed the edges, fused the ends with small bits of silver, and used a wire brush to put a sheen on the surface, and to remove the grime that happened when using the torch. Since I put the torch on the back side, I did preserve some of the beautiful « orange peel » on the front. Now, I could leave these like this, or take a chance and put them in a pickle pot to make them silvery. I like the patina, and I think my customers do too. That beautiful gold sheen on the right side of the right earring, it did it all on its own, that is why these are one of a kind, and uncommon jewelry for independent women.

 Roxy Lentz - The finished earrings Roxy Lentz Jewelry  the finished flower earrings. I used silver wire to cold connect the flowers to their base to preserve the patina. You can see that the base metal of this bowl was brass, because of the soft gleam on the edge of the flowers. After soldering on the post I put the brass base in pickle to clean the post, then I put it in a rinse of hydrogen peroxide and white vinegar to clean the fire scale off the brass. Some more buffing with a brass wire brush on the flex shaft. The earrings are about 2 1/2 inch long, and 1 1/2 wide. There are some similar at In Tandem Gallery and Gaia in Winston Salem NC.

« SHADOWS collection, 2016, is the embodiment of a fantasy world populated with shadows, exotic birds, grotesque demons and fairies, an exploration of the aesthetic and literary values of such creatures and the real and symbolic nature of the shadow as an image and a figure.
We are aware of a tiny fraction of the thinking process that goes on in our minds, and we can control only a tiny part of our conscious thoughts. The vast majority of our thinking efforts go on subconsciously.
Thoughts like birds will always hover high in the sky but is our responsibility to prevent the ‘birds’ from landing in our minds. Those creatures become symbolic statements and represent obsessions, our ideas and fears or projections of our subconscious. Based on this approach, they are merely symbolic representations of human psychological states.«

Julia ObermaierWant to know more of Julia Obm follow her in facebook and Instagram or visit her website: www.juliaobermaier.com

  Julia Obermaier« My main subject is about private space. If someone is crossing the borders of my spaces without permission, it causes a bad feeling. I try to protect them as much as possible, but in daily life, one cannot always keep direct surroundings and personal space in their preferred way. Our outside world is always in relation with each other and our circumstances.
I create in my pieces rooms, containers, boxes or little caves. These spaces can be filled with ones own personal feelings, perceptions and sensations. I see my work as containers protecting the innermost emotions of the viewer or wearer, that they use to confront a busy world ».

Artist Statement
The extraordinary power of objects is obtained, because people believe in them. The more mundane the objects are, the more powerful they become. 
My practice contextualizes the primitive energy that is submerged beneath the layers of garments. When the body is removed, the absence becomes an empty structure. The internal structure is evidence of human existence. It remains full of authentic spirit and fantasy. 
Through the processes of deconstructing and reconstructing materials into symbolic forms, I uncover the hidden intimate and sensual power of humanity. It is a moment when ordinary objects become surreal and uncanny in order to redeem the socially constructed expectations and perceptions.

Jelizaveta Suska
She was born in Latvia, where she completed her Bachelor degree education in Art Academy of Latvia as a metal designer. At the age of 24 she moved to Gothenburg in Sweden for studying and permanent living. In 2015 she graduated from Academy of Design and Crafts (HDK) at University of Gothenburg.
In year 2016 Jelizaveta received The Herbert Hofmann Prize, and Amber prize at Amberif Award.
‘Frozen Moment’ pieces are a lot about feelings of nostalgia, of a moment in time. In my work, I was looking for materialization of these abstract matters. I based it on associations and feelings. After a period of research, I came up with my own material that the pieces are made of. This material has two main compounds: polymer, that is light and transparent, just like ‘a moment’ and crushed marble, that creates an illusion of a solid stone which I associate with a feeling of nostalgia.
In the beginning of crafting each piece, material is hot and dynamic but in a while it turns still. Like a metaphor of a moment becoming a memory. When looking at my works, people often are saying that they look like ice or unknown minerals.
I question traditional approaches and instead of valuable jewels I celebrate the idea behind the material. That’s why for the rear of the brooches and other supporting details I use valuable metals like gold, gold plated silver and titanium.
In this project, I created more than 200 hundred pieces. I then selected 21 and crafted them into the jewelry.

Rafael Luis Alvarez (ARGENTINA)

COLECCIÓN KOSMOS,UNA COLECCION DE PINTURA, DIBUJOS, FOTOGRAFIA Y JOYERIA

Museo José Hernandez en Buenos Aires (Argentina)

Inauguracion Viernes 10 de febrero 2017 18:30 hs
Rafael Luis Alvarez -  KOSMOS, UNA COLECCION DE PINTURA, DIBUJOS, FOTOGRAFIAY JOYERIA:
El viernes 10 de febrero de 2017 a las 18.30 horas el Museo de Arte Popular José Hernández inaugura la exposición KOSMOS. Joyería, fotografía, dibujo y pintura.
Reconocido como uno de los más destacados orfebres contemporáneos de Argentina, Rafael Álvarez reflexiona acerca de lo sutil y contenedor, lo liviano y etéreo, la intuición, lo fantástico y la imaginación. El cosmos, un gran hueco que se crea a cada instante, nuestro espacio cercano que a cada minuto aparece y desaparece interpelado por sus límites.
Las obras surgen de una búsqueda artística subjetiva, conceptual y material con la intención de querer expresar en la joyería cualidades relacionadas a lo femenino. El metal entonces se presenta como demasiado rígido. La investigación lo lleva por los caminos de la pintura, el dibujo,  la fotografía y el video, y encuentra en el caucho las cualidades deseadas.
Kosmos es un  universo femenino. Gea, Ceres, Maya, Venus, Diana, Metis, Io y Hera son las mujeres que habitan este espacio. Representantes de una estirpe mitológica que al mirar el infinito no se nombran aunque están presentes.

NIGHTLIGHT SKIN  STATEMENT
« Jonathan Hens’ striking work speaks of recent developments in today’s world, which has seen a fusion between the banal and the races/ cultures/ subcultures and becomes a place where men and women have merged into androgynous beings.
His designs are the result of an intense search for an alternative identity. Rather than a classic example of beauty, the viewer gets to see Hens’ interpretation of it. He chose the material pewter to create his signature, by engraving, pouncing and printing, he creates a new dimension to the material.
After researching different kinds of sub-and material-cultures/ religion/ races he started to experiment with skins. By confronting those materials together, we can translate it as an extension between all human society.
His dark look mirrors (or reflects) ‘the now’, a place where there is scope for experiment and self- expression. His atypical aesthetic has no truck with traditional techniques. Jonathan Hens creates a visual game between austere forms and a rough edge finish. His work raises many questions, such as what beauty means today and whether or not there is still a difference between the sexes/ humans/ religions and cultures.
Jonathan Hens’ work gives us greater insight into the diversity of our world. »

Pour Isabel Tristan l’inspiration est allée de l’évier au voilier, ou du voilier, passant par les formes dans l’évier, est arrivées à des « voiles » bijou …. elle cite Picasso pour expliquer son inspiration : “La inspiración existe, pero tiene que encontrarte trabajando” . L’inspiration doit te trouver travaillant …. De « corvée vaisselle », il y a dû y avoir un entrechoc d’images, de souvenirs, de formes …… « Et voilà » !

De la navegación caótica y enmarañada de un plato entre las cuatro paredes del fregadero…. al navegar libremente sin obstáculos al fluir en el océano de las naves, trazando travesías de un puerto a otro”Isabel Tristan - PLATOS - proceso II -  Isabel Tristan – PLATOS - Processus II

et le bijou nait ….. il a l’air si simple, si évident …. mais il a fallu tout ce cheminement et que ce fassent ces entrecroisements ….

 » Originaire de la ville de Québec, Marie-Eve G. Castonguay fut d’abord introduite au monde du bijou à l’École de Joaillerie de Québec, où elle compléta une Technique de métiers d’art qu’elle termina en 2011. Elle poursuit sa formation avec l’obtention d’un baccalauréat en arts de NSCAD University (Halifax, N-É), où elle compléta une majeure en conception de bijou et orfèvrerie. Son travail fut présenté au Canada et en France.
Présentement établie à Toronto, elle est artiste en résidence au Harbourfront Centre, de qui elle reçut une bourse d’un an en 2014.
Considérant le corps humain comme un terrain de jeu, Castonguay crée des pièces qui répondent aux mouvements du corps. Inspirée par son questionnement sur l’identité et le sentiment d’appartenance, autant comme artiste que comme individu, elle crée de objets intimes qui invitent à l’introspection. »
