Seth Papac‘s fascination with 17th century European parures, a matching jewelry set comprised of modular components, influences his current work. Papac’s work transforms and disassembles from one piece into another; necklaces become bracelets and earrings, chatelaines contain removable necklaces and objects. His broad range of materials, from traditional metal and enamel to found objects, wood, string, and leather, become narrative works of wearable jewelry or objects.

« My interest in jewelry as a medium of art is its site – the body. Much as the function of architecture is to house, to display and protect paintings and sculpture, the body acts as a literal, metaphorical and conceptual structure for jewelry. Placed on this site, jewelry acts as a personal signifier of taste, attitude, belief and history.
The formal and compositional focus is targeted at an investigation and interpretation of parures, a term from Old French for a set of various items of matching jewelry, which rose to popularity in early 17th century Europe. Cleverly the parure was modular and could be disassembled into different parts or easily remade to stay fashionable. An inherent narrative is created through this interchangeability. How does a collection of objects interact? How does this change when the collective group is disassembled? How does this disassembly affect the overall narrative?
Jewelry for, about, reflecting on a character provides the conceptual focus of the work. Through materials, processes, color, form and specific constructs of these variables my work describes settings/interiors/environments that impart a specific taste or style that then in turn speaks of a particular kind of character or personality.

Boris Bally brooches

Boris Bally transforms recycled street signs, weapon parts, and a wide variety of found materials into objects for reflection. He rivets and forms the hand-selected signs, which he purchases from cities. These pieces celebrate raw American street-aesthetic in the form of objects, often useful, for the home and the body.

EXPO ‘Özay Emert : Jewellery Artist of the Month’ – Gallery NORSU, Helsinki (Finland) 1-30 Avr. 2010

Özay Emert is a very talented jewelry artist from Turkey. In 2008 she got her MFA degree at HDK (School of Design and Crafts) in Gothenburg. In this project, she has drawn inspiration from her Turkish cultural heritage. The collection of jewelery called Either seem as you are or be as you seem is inspired by objects used by Sufi Dervish for head resting during their pray, in 13 century.
«  I think our preoccupation with material rather than spiritual things has CAUSED us to overlook the beauty of religion. « (Özay Emert)
