Jointed Jewels by Alissia Melka-Teichroew

« Jointed Jewels represents a union of new and old, organic and industrial, functional and decorative. At the heart of the project is the intention to transform complex and separate elements into a new kind of whole. It started as an exploration of ball joints, commonly found in cars and hip replacements. Alissia Melka-Teichroew had the idea of creating a ball joint -normally assembled with separate parts- as one single piece. Through the use of selective laser sintering she was able to literally make a ball inside a ball.
Each piece has been made with the same technique: it seems like an intricately assembled object but is in fact one single piece that was made in one go. Many of the bangles, necklaces and rings are interpretations of renaissance and Victorian jewels and there are also references to intricately made and very precious pieces by luxury brands like Bulgari and Cartier. In addition, there are multi-tiered necklaces that display connecting joints that resemble human bone structure. »

« Recently a new image of Sweden is spread internationally. Being a country, which often is seen as a rolemodel for its equality and social work, new sides to the story are becoming visible. It is a well-known fact that the suicidal rates in Sweden are unusually high, and that Sweden is one of the countries with the highest numbers of one-person households. These darker sides of the Swedish society have been put into the spotlight partly through the huge literary success of Stieg Larsson. This situation makes us wonder what the image of Sweden is like in the rest of world today.
We – the Diagonal team – have started an art jewellery project where we have invited 9 other jewellers to discuss and give their view of what Sweden in general and, more, specific Swedish woman really are like.
Roles and ideals change over time, and we find it of great importance to share these experiences. How has the image of us affected the way we see our selves? How do we confront the prejudices that we meet in international contexts? Through our jewellery we want to communicate our thoughts and contribute to the international image of Sweden.
We are are right now having meetings with the participating artists where we are discussing the theme and the work. The last meeting was two weeks ago, we came there quite tired after a long week of money-making-non-jewellery work, but we left with a lot of inspiration and motivation. Being part of a network and get other’s opinions on your work can be very stimulating, and to meet with people sharing a similar life situation is a good support in the profession we have chosen.
The participants of A Swedish Smörgåsbord are all young female jewellers  » Nina Mårtensson (Master Degree in Jewellery Art, HDK. Senior designer for Goldsmith brand Jarl Sandin, Göteborg.)

We will soon write more about this group, the project and how it develops.
Keeping you posted!

« Making jewellery from human hair is an old Swedish crafts tradition, which now a days have very few practitioners. During the hard times in the nineteenth century this type of craft was flourishing, and young Swedish women went on business trips through Europe, to make and sell hair jewellery. Their work was a large help in getting their villages back on its feet. The hair jewellery is now out of fashion, but the spirit of the entrepreneurs is very much alive. The blonds are conquering the internet with their blogs, and starting companies with the power of social media. My jewellery is a tribute to what exist under the surface of lips gloss and curls – and a new interpretation of the old craft tradition.«
