EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Roxy LENTZ – re-purposed metal

Classé dans : EXCHANGE-BIJOU,Exposition/Exhibition,Roxy LENTZ (US),Salon,USA — bijoucontemporain @ 23:16

« I fabricate contemporary art jewelry from re-purposed silver plate metal » she says.
Not « I CREATE », but I « fabricate » ….  In another place she tolds us « y jewelry is made from base metal, metal found at the thrift store. It has no real value, …. in « scrap »value it is about 10 dollars …. »WHAAAAT ????!!!!!!

But in another place,  I finally find this : « Uncommon jewelry for independent women » !
YES, it is THIS : jewelry with a character , jewelry with strength !

Yes, « wild », savage jewelry, rough, « rude », with suddenly a delicate detail, something to point out, where eyes focuses …. look at this bangle … it has a « savage » look, it is not perfectly squared, the round piece is not « perfectly » closed, the patina is irregular, and suddenly, a little detail that shows that, YES, someone brought attention to it :this little « goldy bouquet » on the left … do you see it ? this little detail brings EMOTION …. it is what we call in french « un supplément d’âme » (an « extra touch of soul« ), and it is why I LOVE so much the Roxy Lentz jewelry ! Each of her jewels has its little dosis of emotion !

« My work is inspired from what others often overlook. Man makes a street, a wall to control his environment, and then life – elements – slowly decompose this to bring it back to nothing. In the interim, I see beauty.  »
