Portuguese jewellery art – a variety of gorgeous works and captivating forms

A compelling display of works by Portuguese jewellery artists opens the new panorama of exhibitions at Vienna’s Galerie Slavik. The range of unique pieces of jewellery encompasses strictly geometric, richly pictorial and consistently reduced creations.

The golden necklace by Ana Albuquerque, who has intensively explored the material gold and its history, is a compelling piece of simple and strictly reduced form, which is further accentuated by the glow of gold.

The name of Tereza Seabra, an artist who in the course of her training studied with Thomas Gentile in New York, has become synonymous with contemporary jewellery art in Lisbon today. Her golden vintage pendants take us on a journey into the past, a picture diary of old photographs and miniature landscapes painted on ivory and framed in gold.

The golden ring sculptures by Paula Crespo, one of the most noted Portuguese jewellery artists, are powerful, wearable miniature sculptures.
The works by Alexandra Serpa Pimentel are based on natural forms and structures. She designs powerfully expressive necklaces which in movement seem to merge with their wearers in fluid unity.

The white paper brooches by Ana Coutos appear to float as weightlessly as a feather.

The exciting series of « Luster – Territories » brooches in silver, aluminum, lacquer and gold leaf by Dulce Ferraz reflect topographic morphologies created by man and nature.
