« My current body of work connects my interest in drawing and jewelry using wire as I would use charcoal. The work consists of a series of wearable pieces that reflect an exploration of line, form, volume, movement, structure, geometry, space, light and shadow.

Two of the primary influences for this body of work were The Modern or New Jewelry Movement, which began in Europe in 1970, and the Constructivist Movement, which took place during the early part of the 20th century, primarily in Russia. The influence of these two movements, coupled with my interest in architectural structures, form the basis for this body of work.  »

Donna d’Aquino

« My current body of work connects my interest in drawing and jewelry using wire as I would use charcoal. The work consists of a series of wire bracelets and brooches that reflect an exploration of line, form, volume, movement, structure, geometry, space, light and shadow.

Donna D'Aquino 'in line' 12L wire bracelet n°85-steel- 6inch wide, 3 1-4 highDonna D’Aquinoin line‘ 12L wire bracelet n°85-steel- 6inch wide, 3 1/4 high

Two of the primary influences for this body of work were The Modern or New Jewelry Movement, which began in Europe in 1970, and the Constructivist Movement, which took place during the early part of the 20th century, primarily in Russia. The influence of these two movements, coupled with my interest in architectural structures, form the basis for this body of work.
Although the Russian Constructivist Movement was very broad and encompassed many different mediums, it is their methods of construction that I find most engaging. They extended the formal language of abstract design into practical design. They introduced different materials such as construction lumber and plastics, to explore new approaches to space and movement.
I am also greatly influenced by the Modern or New Jewelry movement, which took place in Europe from 1970 through the 80′s. Fundamental to this movement was the concept of pushing the boundaries that traditionally defined jewelry. My work is very much influenced by the minimalist European approach to design, which is expressed by an accent on formal elements, and integration of non-precious materials. I strip the designs to their essentials, while sometimes adding a touch of playfulness. I appreciate their spontaneity and direct response to the materials.
It is also important to me that my jewelry exists off the body as well as on the body. When these objects are not being worn they are hung on the wall as a three-dimensional drawing floating in space. Optimally, light is projected from above the pieces to create shadows; this interaction with the wall adds a further dimension to the work.
The size of the pieces are perceived differently on the body than on the wall. On the wall they appear small within the architecture. On the body they appear large and quite dramatic as a result. The pieces are transformed depending on their context. The wearer is reminded of the piece with every movement of their arm and body; it takes commitment to wear these pieces. This duality of function/positioning and the scale of the forms is meant to challenge western traditions of jewelry. »   (at VelvetdaVinci)

Jewelry in a New Iron Age by 60 International Artists

Velvet da Vinci San Francisco exhibition
March 1 – April 14, 2013
Artists’ reception Friday, March 1, 2013 from 6 to 8 p.m.

FERROUS, an exhibition of jewelry using iron, steel, and steel alloys. Although the use of iron dates back more than two thousand years, this humble material is more commonly used for agriculture and industrial purposes than adornment. A significant exception is the Berlin Iron Jewelry of the early 19th century. The Prussian Royal family funded the uprising against Napoleon by encouraging wealthy citizens to exchange their precious gold and silver for intricately fabricated iron jewelry
.Intricacy is just one aspect the 60 artists of FERROUS explore with this versatile material. Known for its strength and lightness, the steel and iron jewelry of FERROUS is both rusty and shiny, sheet and wire, bejeweled and modest. The exhibition will take place simultaneously at Velvet da Vinci Gallery in San Francisco and as a virtual exhibition at crafthaus online. In May FERROUS will travel to 18Karat Gallery in Toronto, Canada as part of The Society of North American Goldsmith’s annual conference.

COUP de COEUR : Donna d’AQUINO work in lines

Donna d’AQUINO

« The work that I’ve been making since 1998 is very direct; there’s minimal soldering, and it’s all done by hand without it being overly technical. My approach with the dip is exactly the same. I open the can of Plasti Dip®, mix it, dip the jewelry, then let it set overnight,« . She points out, « This is a highly toxic material to breathe so I wear a mask. »

Donna d’AQUINO‘s work has been influenced by a fascination with architecture, the Russian Constructivist Movement of the early 20th century, and The Modern or New Jewelry Movement of the ’70s in Europe, which pushed the boundaries of what defined jewelry.

« I strip the designs to their essentials while sometimes adding a touch of playfulness. I do use some sterling and gold but primarily I’m applying the color to steel. Interior and exterior architectural structures used for building skyscrapers, bridges, and telephone towers all inspire my work. My original training was in graphic design – I wanted to be an illustrator, and I think that’s why most of my work is either black, white, or grey. Dipping was a way to incorporate a touch of color. I chose red because it’s dramatic, people are drawn to it, and it maintains the piece’s graphic quality, » says D’Aquino. (Ganoskin)
