Beate Klockmann- Ring Farbig geometrisch

Beate Klockmann, 1972 in Weimar geboren, absolvierte nach einer Ausbildung zur Goldschmiedin ein Studium an der Kunsthochschule Burg Giebichenstein in Halle. Philippe Sajet ist 1953 in Amsterdam geboren und seit nunmehr 36 Jahren als Schmuckkünstler und Goldschmied tätig. 
Die in Gold gearbeiteten Ringe von Beate Klockmann kontrastieren mit den ganz in schwarz gehaltenen Niello/Silber Ringen von Philippe Sajet. Beide Künstler lebten und arbeiteten viele Jahre in Amsterdam und sind international bekannt. Nach ihrem Umzug nach Südfrankreich hätten sie die holländische Farbigkeit gegen eine französische Geradlinigkeit eingetauscht, erklären die Galeristen.

All the pieces are made from artisan paper produced with native plants such as majahua, chichicatzli and pochote, while the dyes come also from natural sources such as indigo (the photos here show the pieces before the dye process). This, of course, makes the pieces biodegradable

Sharon Vaizer is a 2009 Graduate of the Jewelry Design Department of Shenkar College of Engineering and Design.
Sharon’s work is influenced by the marine environment, which is characterized by incessant motion, and amorphous shapes that emerge from a multitude of moving elements and coalesce into a single whole. I just love the way she used cheap and ready made materials and transformed those basic objects into precious ones

« My work is influenced by the marine environment, which is characterized by incessant motion, and amorphous shapes that emerge from a multitude of moving elements and coalesce into a single whole.
I made use of cheap, readily available and recyclable materials – such as the simple plastic bag which has become an icon for recycling issues in Israel -  manipulating and multiplying them to test their stylistic flexibility, trying to transform base objects into precious ones, the mundane into the unexpected, common into rare.
The project consists of: a collection of inflatable swimwear – each item of which is handmade and unique; a tank-top shirt and handbag, both made of plastic bags and set with Swarovski stones; a hat, a shoulder ornament and plastic bracelets, all inspired by sea creatures, made of plastic cable-ties, shrink tubing and clothing-tag ties, and set with Swarovski stones.  Materials: ready-made industrial plastic and rubber parts, plastic bags, shrink tubing, cable-ties, brass and Swarovski stones. »

« Italian jewellery artist Angela Simone says she has always had a love for paper, but only recently discovered the pleasure of using it to make wearable art. She loves the fragility and the strength it offers, allowing her to make pieces that are delicate yet strong – “Working with glue makes it possible to obtain very robust paper beads that are also waterproof” she says.« (uponafold blog)

la ROUILLE en majesté …..

Alexandra Chaney - 'tetanophobia 'Alexandra Chaney - ‘tetanophobia ‘

voir article   « Ode à la ROUILLE …. Marianne Anselin« 

« La matière qu’elle affectionne aujourd’hui, vielles cartouches, ressorts rouillés, la sécurise, même s’ils sont des déchets. Elle y voit de la beauté, voire de la préciosité, quand d’ordinaire il y a rejet. Sa timidité est dans l’air, c’est pourtant l’ambiguïté qu’elle cultive.
Éloignée des valeurs mercantiles de la joaillerie traditionnelle, Marianne place la préciosité et la rareté là où on ne les attend pas : « je les cherche dans la fragilité de la nature, dans l’action du temps en arrêtant la dégradation du fer rouillé, en utilisant des objets rebuts de notre société qui ne sont pas vides de sens mais porteurs de mémoire ». Là où certains voient imperfections, aspérités, couleurs fanées, elle perçoit comment le souffle du vent, le cliquetis de la pluie viennent à bout de l’airain, comment de l’artificiel la nature se réapproprie et fait son oeuvre. La matière est déjà en migration car « tous les éléments sont fluides. C’est une question de temps. C’est la courte durée de notre existence qui fait que nous appelons «dur» ou «mou» tel ou tel matériau. Le temps met à mal ces critères ». En intervenant, elle arrête un processus qui menait le métal à sa fin, fige l’action du temps sous la violence de sa forge et offre à porter une impalpable et pourtant bien réelle effigie du devenir, un souvenir magnifié.  “ » (Marianne ANSELIN)

Edgar Mosa – ‘Di Indigetes’ – rusted steel

« Relationships with time, space and objects were the focus of my attention during my time in Detroit, Michigan, USA. In an attempt to belong – as a bird makes its nest – I gathered materials that surrounded me; and searched for forms that could convey the struggle within.
Saw blades and rusty steel populated my studio, as vanitas on a still life. From them I created brooches that hung on the body like uncomfortable companions, burdens of a neglected past, that engaged a bittersweet relationship with the wearer. The pieces found their visual strength in the contrast between the delicate organic surfaces versus the sharp industrial edges » (

« Extension, prolongation, parasites of the body, these jewels are a hymn of our material lives, between power, social identity and belief charge. These jewels are made of an association of popular image, highlighting the relationship with the body . Two oilcans as balls are an association of a wood nodule and the oilcan shape, connected by a wire they hang directly between the legs as a soap or lubricating boxes.«

Claire Baloge (FR) -  Camel dung, gold leaf, silk (collier en crottes de chameau … j’adore !!)

I have chosen to use camel dung, because  it’s shape and color. Although the use of camel dung in jewelry may provoke it also links: in those (not so) far-away countries, many people are still using these animals, and their excrement, in daily life, while some others, a few miles away , are smoking the cigars of the oil business. I have chosen to use gold because gold is the referential measurement on which the whole world economy is founded. It remains a major symbol for jewelry, almost everywhere around the world. While camels are traditionally emblems of the noble class, in the nomad society, a clear mark of wealth and importance. It seems to be two different temporalities, which are still sharing the same space, coexisting in the same territories.(Claire Balogeexpo ‘I care a lot’)

Galerie RA : new address ! moving to the NES

Classé dans : Gal. RA (NL),Hollande (NL) — bijoucontemporain @ 1:09

Due to large scale renovation of the building on Vijzelstraat, in which Galerie Ra has had its gallery since 1983, Ra is relocatingto attractive new premises on the Nes in early September.
The city listed building, dating from 1907, with a façade typical of the period, will provide space for Ra’s changing exhibition programme, permanent collection and specialised bookshop. The move will give renewed vigour to all kinds of new initiatives planned for the gallery.
The Nes is right in the centre of Amsterdam and runs parallel to Rokin, one of the city’s major streets. It is home to several theatres and has many cafés and restaurants. In the immediate
vicinity is the Allard Pierson Museum; the Special Collections (of the University Library); Grimburgwal, lined with jewellery shops, as well as Jan Jansen Shoes and Droog design.
Up until the end of July, you are still warmly invited to the Vijzelstraat, where recent works by Lam de Wolf are on view,among others. In August Galerie Ra will be closed the entire month for the relocation. It opens its doors again on Nes in mid-September, in festive mood, ready to meet the next decade!
The opening date, opening exhibition and other gallery events will be announced in August in an online newsletter. Please let us know if you prefer to have a printed version sent by post.
We look forward to keeping you informed!

« My artistic imagination transforms itself from life and nature. Painterly and sculptural jewelry forms convey personal stories and memories from life.
