«Cheveu un bijou !!!» hurle la Dame de Coeur

«!Tranchez-lui la tête!!! Cheveu un bijou!!!» hurle la Dame de Coeur, dans Alice …

mais … faut pas se faire de cheveux dans la vie !! ici, on est à un poil du bijou ….. si ce ne sont pas des bijoux au poil !! ;-)

Au-delà du dégoût que peut susciter l’emploi d’un tel matériau (à la « grande époque » du bijou en cheveux, à l’époque Victorienne, mode lancée par la très romantique Reine Victoria, cet engouement eu un grand succès dans les pays anglo-saxons mais suscita du dégoût et un certain rejet en France et dans le reste de l’Europe), ce n’est pas étonnant, à mon sens, qu’il suscite tant d’attrait parmi la jeune génération de bijoutiers : à force d’interroger le rapport du bijou au corps, le corps s’incorpore petit à petit au bijou lui-même.

« Contemporary art is getting hairy Long and silky; short and curly. Blond, brunette, red or grey. It’s hair and it has an important part in our perceptions of ourselves. It defines gender and visual identity, and is playing an important role lately in art — in jewelry, drawings or in mixed media pieces. Hair has long had a role in the work of artists and artisans. In the Victorian era, creating jewelry from hair became almost as popular as knitting or crocheting.  By using one’s own hair or that of a beloved family member women were able to design bracelets, chains, rings and earrings. Apart from jewelry, mourners would weave hair into decorative, memorial wall hangings. By the early 1900s using hair fell out of fashion. During the past 15 years, however, there’s been a fascination among contemporary artists using skin, nail clippings, urine and hair to create various forms of art. Fascinated with Victorian hair jewelry, artist and jewelry designer Melanie Bilenker has revived the art form. Like the Victorians who kept lockets of hair and miniature portraits painted with ground hair and pigment to secure the memory of a lost love, renders the « quiet minutes, the mundane, the domestic, the ordinary moments » from her own tresses. Bilenker observes various daily activities such as cleaning, bathing, dressing, resting or eating. She chronicles the private moments by setting the camera’s timer and goes about her business which can be anything such as eating chocolate, writing a note or enjoying a Saturday morning breakfast. Once she has the photographed images, Bilenker creates tracings of the forms within ghem with thousands of tiny strands of her own hair – which are eventually fixed in resin.  She meticulously layers several different drawings to give the appearance of depth, one as foreground, another as background.  The entire process takes the course of about a week of laying hairs, mixing resin, and then allowing it to cure.  Says Bilenker, « Once the hairs are set as line drawings within resin, I shape, smooth and polish the exterior.  I then fabricate the jewelry findings and set them.  The piece is then complete. »" (Courtesy Melanie Bilenker and Sienna Gallery)

« Puisant dans la tradition des bijoux en cheveux, matériau depuis longtemps collecté dans des foires et marchés ou dans l’intimité des familles pour devenir parure, Ana Goalabré se joue de cet usage en coupant une de ses mèches et en y taillant une bague qu’elle envoie à un homme accompagnée de la missive «J’aimerais tant passer mes doigts dans tes cheveux». Cette phrase, appel érotique d’un corps d’artiste, devient le titre d’une série déclinant divers contenus aimants et sensuels, traditionnellement gardés jusqu’alors implicites au nom d’une morale et d’une bienséance rigoureuse et qui tout à coup semblent avoir gagné le droit de dire clairement le désir, qu’il s’agisse de celui d’une mère, d’un père, d’une amante, d’un amant… et ce dans toute sa trivialité. Pourtant, il n’y a aucune charge obscène dans ces bagues. Qu’elles soient très travaillées ou reprennent le mouvement naturel d’une mèche de cheveux, elles nous renvoient à nos jeux tactiles dans les cheveux de l’autre, en fixant le mouvement, image arrêtée puis détachée du corps pour n’en garder que la sensation. »

Rickson Salkeld   Rickson Salkeld – I am interested in the feminine ideal in relation to the female body.  I enjoy creating work that expresses my wish to both conform and  rebel against ideas of femininity. Through various materials and  processes I take from my own body both physically and metaphorically.  Hair can be used to comment on feminine allure and power, while  clear resin is used to symbolize an abundance of tears

maria ignacia walker - MFA JEWELLERY AND BODY ORNAMENTS Alchimia contemporary jewellery School 2013 - 2015: Maria Ignacia Walker – MFA JEWELLERY AND BODY ORNAMENTS Alchimia contemporary jewellerySchool 2013 – 2015 –   A simple fact of life that María Ignacia Walker obsesses over: The shedding of hair. The obsession – losing them, collecting them, ordering them, measuring them and archiving them. The desire – to preserve these losses – It gives rise to “transcendieron”.  The discourse is not about beauty and it is not about sensuality, not even about cultural symbols that hair carries.  How much hair do you lose constantly, everyday ? How many pieces grow out of your body and die every moment ?  “The transcendents” are a homage to the moments when you lose your hair. Captured and immortalized in the fragility of the porcelain, they give perpetuity and freeze all their expressions in the moment of their detachment from the body. With a threading method, the artist uses horsehair as connectors. They show the lightness, energy and freedom, while demonstrating the real, natural movement of the hair. Together with the act of keeping and protecting the hair in a porcelain form, they are given another life that keeps them present through their absence.

MARION DELARUE — « Mania » – Traditional korean lacquer, korean hair. 2011 « During my stay in South Korea, I was struck by Korean ladies’ habits of playing with their hair fringes. As soon as they had the chance they would roll up their hair by making it slide between their forefinger and their middle finger and then pull on it softly. Since I was often bored during such long classes taught in a language I don’t understand, I spent time observing the students… »

Manolya Konuk : The jewels/ Les bijouxManolya Konuk - ‘Les bijoux/ jewels’ – As an integral part to the design of the object , the pattern is not merely decoration of the structure but constitutes the structure of the jewel.
Using «les bijoux» from Baudelaire the text becomes a material, a substance, an object, and each strophe became a jewel to adorn clothes. // Les lettres même forment les motifs, la structure. Le texte devient objet pouvant se disposer comme ornement sur le vêtement, où chaque sphère représente une strophe des « bijoux » de Baudelaire.

GENIAL ! :-)
et je ne peux, comme Manolya Konuk, que citer le poème de BAUDELAIRE !
Les Bijoux

La très chère était nue, et, connaissant mon coeur,
Elle n’avait gardé que ses bijoux sonores,
Dont le riche attirail lui donnait l’air vainqueur
Qu’ont dans leurs jours heureux les esclaves des Mores.
Quand il jette en dansant son bruit vif et moqueur,
Ce monde rayonnant de métal et de pierre
Me ravit en extase, et j’aime à la fureur
Les choses où le son se mêle à la lumière.
Elle était donc couchée et se laissait aimer,
Et du haut du divan elle souriait d’aise
À mon amour profond et doux comme la mer,
Qui vers elle montait comme vers sa falaise.
Les yeux fixés sur moi, comme un tigre dompté,
D’un air vague et rêveur elle essayait des poses,
Et la candeur unie à la lubricité
Donnait un charme neuf à ses métamorphoses;
Et son bras et sa jambe, et sa cuisse et ses reins,
Polis comme de l’huile, onduleux comme un cygne,
Passaient devant mes yeux clairvoyants et sereins;
Et son ventre et ses seins, ces grappes de ma vigne,
S’avançaient, plus câlins que les Anges du mal,
Pour troubler le repos où mon âme était mise,
Et pour la déranger du rocher de cristal
Où, calme et solitaire, elle s’était assise.
Je croyais voir unis par un nouveau dessin
Les hanches de l’Antiope au buste d’un imberbe,
Tant sa taille faisait ressortir son bassin.
Sur ce teint fauve et brun, le fard était superbe!
— Et la lampe s’étant résignée à mourir,
Comme le foyer seul illuminait la chambre
Chaque fois qu’il poussait un flamboyant soupir,
Il inondait de sang cette peau couleur d’ambre!

Pour sa broche "cocarde" en feuilles d'argent et or (?) ondulées, percées en mille endroits et superposées les unes sur les autres fabriquant visuellement l'effet d'une dentelle, Manolya Konuk, étudiante de 4e année de l'atelier Bijou de l'Ecole des arts décoratifs de Strasbourg, a reçu le 1er prix de la part de la société HafnerManolya Konuk ‘Parade’ is a succession of 9 rosettes in which the patterns are made out of famous French writings about the nation ( like Voltaire and Rimbaud, Céline). Using the letters as a repetitive pattern, the text becomes a decoration to show off with to all.

« Secrets de bijoux » – Line Vautrin et onze créateurs d’aujourd’hui (expostion mars-aout 1999) -Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris.

Line Vautrin

Une sélection de bijoux de Line Vautrin des années 50 rend hommage à cette artiste créatrice de bijoux, de boîtes en bronze doré et de miroirs en résine ; messages chiffrés, rébus, symboles jalonnent ces œuvres à déchiffrer et mettent en lumière toute la malice ludique de Line Vautrin.«Poète du métal», «experte des petits riens», Line Vautrin possédait l’art de faire surgir des matières dites pauvres du bronze, du laiton, de la résine , des merveilles d’invention destinées à embellir les élégantes de l’après-guerre. Lorsque Line Vautrin, née en 1913, crée ses premiers bijoux elle possède quelques notions de ciselure et de dorure acquises dans l’atelier de fonderie de son père. Mais c’est à l’Exposition internationale de 1937 qu’elle se fait véritablement connaître. Elle ouvre une première boutique rue de Berri, qu’elle transfère en 1943 au 63, rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré ; plus tard elle restaure un hôtel particulier de la rue Vieille-du-Temple afin d’y installer ses ateliers et son domicile.

La guerre crée une atmosphère propice au développement de la «bijouterie d’art» ou «bijouterie fantaisie», la pénurie de moyens constituant une dynamique par la contrainte.

Jusqu’en 1950, Line Vautrin utilise le bronze doré pour des bijoux et des accessoires conçus dans un genre très personnel souvent allégorique, s’appuyant sur les thèmes de l’amour et de l’amitié, interprétés avec poésie et humour.

Au début des années soixante, Line Vautrin s’installe rue de l’Université et abandonne la création de bijoux pour la décoration, créant miroirs et cadres en résine incrustée de petits miroirs colorés, procédé inventé et breveté par elle à la fin des années cinquante. Line Vautrin disparaît en 1996, laissant derrière elle une œuvre riche et élégante, témoignage d’un art où décoration, parure, sculpture et mode se confondent.

… et onze créateurs d’aujourd’hui
Parallèlement à l’exposition de Line Vautrin, une sélection d’œuvres contemporaines révèle le travail de onze créateurs français et étrangers ; tous s’expriment à partir d’une mise en scène d’images et de signes indéchiffrables dont ils donnent et refusent à la fois les clefs. Ils établissent par là une relation particulière entre le bijou et celui qui le porte, ayant moins le souci de l’effet produit que celui d’intriguer, voire de mystifier le spectateur, laissant ainsi au seul propriétaire la véritable connaissance du bijou.

Pour cette raison, ils créent des bagues dont une partie reste cachée dans le creux de la main, des pendentifs dont le décor est enfermé à l’intérieur, des colliers construits à partir d’un texte en fil d’or, des broches anamorphoses dont le motif n’est révélé que par la lumière.

Alyssa Dee Cross, Manfred Bischoff, Patrick Muff, Torben Hardenberg, Johanna Dahm, Ruudt Peters, Christer G. Jonsson, Gilles Jonemann, Florence Lehmann, Brune Boyer et Jacomijn van der Donk participent à cette exposition collective.

Ces bijoux, inspirés par les mots et l’écriture, me font penser à d’autres bijoux, eux aussi des « mots contre les maux ». Ces bijoux visualisent les mots/maux, cela ne veut pas dire que les bijoux où l’on ne voit aucun mot n’aient rien à dire ! Au contraire ! tout bijou est un message …. tout bijou « parle » à celui qui le porte, qui l’a choisi, qu’il a touché ….

« Michaela Niegemann chooses forgiveness, understanding, love and hurt as the focus for her jewellery of copper and rubber, and uses silhouettes of people who have hurt her and those that she loves as nail-clad pendants.  » (mocoloco)

« This is my jewellery about love and pain. But most of all about forgiveness and understanding. Words that say forgive me.  Wine labels shaped as tears and together they create a mess.  Silhouettes of a secure love. The wine bottles on a fragile string. The nails against my body.« (Michaela NIEGEMANN)

FELT FELT FELT… jewelry – upcoming book ’500 Felt Objects’

« Trumpet sound ! Some time ago, the call for entries went out for 500 Felt Objects, a book slated for fall 2011 release*. After seeing Fashioning Felt, the terrific show she curated, I enlisted Susan Brown of the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum to serve as the juror for this book. We’ve been reviewing the images to include in the book, and I’ve come across some really exciting jewelry made with this extraordinary material!
Now, please don’t think the decisions have been made for the book–we’ve still got a loooong way to go before selections are finalized. Just wanted to share the fascinating things some talented artists from around the globe are making. » (Larkcrafts)

(Brooch by Gillian Hillerud, a selected artist for METAL Inclinations1)

Chao-Hsien KuoChao-Hsien Kuo
CHAO-HSIEN KUO (Lahti, Finland) – ‘Lilac’ bouquet ring – silver – All parts move, so ring sits comfortably on hand.
‘Lumipallo’ ring – silver – All parts move

« I have been building a garden of my own for many years. A garden of imagination. I collect the seeds of inspiration by taking close-up photographs of flowers and plants, which I encounter in my daily surroundings or during traveling. I like to observe how a bloom is set on the stem, how the petals unwrap to reveal an enclosed surprise and how leaves sprout from branches, from which I can almost hear the popping sounds. I want to capture the gesture of a flower and to depict the energy and liveliness of a plant. » (CHAO-HSIEN KUO (Finland))

Allyson BoneAllyson Bone
ALLYSON BONE (USA) – Pierced Brooch #2 – hand pierced, fabricated oxidized sterling silver
Pierced Ring #5  - oxidized sterling silver

« The work I create is a balance of my desire to create something that is simple and also complex. I want my designs to appeal to a large audience, but I also want to reward those who are curious and investigate further. To accomplish this I include hidden details. Piercing the surface of the metal, I can create intricate surface patterns which often disguise the silhouettes of whimsical creatures. I have found that the process of hiding the iconic outline of a rabbit or a horse in a complicated pattern is very gratifying for me, like telling a secret. » (ALLYSON BONE (USA))

Tura Sugden
TURA SUGDEN (AU/USA) – ‘black Swallowtail’, 2008 – copper, fine silver, imitation rhodium plated, anticlastic raised – (photo Bob Toy)

« Communication between the fields of art and science plays an important role in the advance of both disciplines. A relationship between the two is inevitable. I question both the fear and the acceptance of insectual images, and I have found that working with entomological images and patterns has inspired dialogue and exposed the beauty that insects can inspire and reflect. » (TURA SUGDEN (USA))

Vina Rust Second Place
VINA RUST (USA) – Equisetum Bracelet – Stained Cell Series – sterling silver, 14K gold, liver of sulfur patina, hand-fabricated

« This body of work is concerned with revelation of the interior, with slicing past the surface. Inspired by botanical illustrations and photomicrographs, it has allowed me to both explore the idea of exposing intricate internal structures with devices such as the cross-section or selective staining of cells, and pay tribute to imagery that has cultivated a sense of wonder in me. My influences vary from Rackham illustrations to « ethnic » jewelry, but tend to share a common thread: acute awareness of natural forms, and of the tension between beauty and menace so often found in nature’s defenses. » (VINA RUST (USA))

Vina RustVina Rust
Vina RUST (USA)- Spartina Study (Brooch)- Stained Cell Series – sterling silver, gold, liver of sulfur patina

Diane Falkenhagen
Diane FALKENHAGEN (USA) – Rococo Landscape -Oxidized Sterling Silver, 23 Kt Gold Leaf, 14 Kt Gold, Mixed Media Image on Sterling Silver

« In my mixed media jewelry I combine two-dimensional pictorial space and three-dimensional jewelry forms. Instead of gemstones, pictures form the central elements of my fabricated brooches, lockets and neckpieces. My diminutive pictorial expressions are either invented or borrowed from historical sources. I use a variety of art materials and techniques to create the images which are chosen for their emotional and intellectual impact as well as their aesthetic value. The jewelry forms that support the images are contemporary yet suggestive of historical styles of ornament. They are primarily fabricated from metal, but often incorporate more eclectic materials. » (DIANE FALKENHAGEN (US))

Sun Kyoung Kim
SUN KYOUNG KIM (US) – ‘Pair ‘ – ring for two people – Sterling silver

« The artist creates jewelry that involves participation of public to produce lively experiences for individual participants. The artist’s interactive jewelry invites two or more people and lets them interact with it. The wearers of her work create a truly impromptu performance while interacting with her work. The artist’s work is refined, elegant, and feminine in aesthetic. She employs curved lines in the design and uses precious metal, sterling silver to accentuate the elegance. The artist’s work is more or less intimate and private in that it does not accommodate a large group of people. » (SUN KYOUNG KIM (US))

Sharon Massey
SHARON MASSEY (USA) – steel bracelet

« I am interested in defining preciousness in my work through sentimentality, intimacy, and emotion. I seek to pay homage to goldsmithing traditions through technique and format, while challenging conventional materials and their value. I borrow historical ornamental motifs and reinterpret them to suggest a feeling of familiarity, as well as the passage of time. The content of my work lies in its use of appropriation and material innovation. In my work, I hope to express the value of sentimentality through ornamentation. » (SHARON MASSEY (USA))

Jillian Moore Award of MeritJillian Moore
JILLIAN A. MOORE (US)- ‘Symbogillis’ – electroformed & fabricated copper, nickel-silver, paint and ink
‘Knobbles’ – electroformed & fabricated copper and brass, paint

« My work combines electroforming and fabrication to achieve incidental organic textures as well as smooth biological forms. The surfaces are then painted. Abrasives remove paint from high points in the organic surface, and areas of interest may be printed on. The resulting objects belie their processes and instead reference living creatures of my own invention. » (JILLIAN A. MOORE (US))

Renee Zettle-Sterling
Renee ZETTLE-STERLING (USA) – Object of Mourning #3 – silver, copper, doily dipped in latex paint, rubber casting, fabrication, mix media

 » Objects of Mourning  2007-Present Through this body of work, I am investigating how objects are a source of meaning beyond their physical properties. I am especially interested in how objects help us move through the difficult passage of mourning. During the process of mourning objects can links us to loved ones that have passed or moments in life that are fleeting, such as childhood. The objects that I am creating become an outlet for displacement, emptiness, loss, and sentimentality. » (Renee ZETTLE-STERLING (USA))

Mary Hallam Pearse
MARY HALLAM PEARSE (USA) – ‘That Little Something’ Brooch – Sterling Silver, Fine Metal Paper, Pearls, Glass 2008 Printed, Fabricated

« In my current body of work I seek to examine how jewelry functions as an image, a means to construct desire, and the consequence of transfer from image to object and back to image. Found images are appropriated from a variety of sources, including magazines and various publications then printed on thin sheet of metal paper resembling the historical tin-types. This game of skill requires that the player complete the image by putting the jewels in to the impressions. These pieces are similar to the games children once received as party favors and to the game bagatelle. » (MARY HALLAM PEARSE (USA))

Mary Hallam Pearse
MARY HALLAM PEARSE- ‘Feeding Desire’ – Brooch  2008 Sterling Silver, Fine Metal Paper, Pearls, Glass Fabricated 

Sunyeoul Lee
SUNG-YEOUL LEE (USA)  – ‘Penetration’ – Poly Rope, Resin, Copper, Tool Dip, Powder Coating (Resin Casting, Rubber Coating, Powder Coating, Forming) 2007

« My goal is associating the idea of intimacy in jewelry objects to the body while the rope functions as a vehicle which conveys metaphorical meaning of connection. When the piece is on the body, it seems to penetrate or bind the wearer. I feel that it expresses the physical and conceptual connection between piece and wearer. It is important to me that the wearer can be able to relate to the symbolic meaning of the rope and at the same time feel themselves tied and connected with the rope or knot while wearing my work. » (SUNG-YEOUL LEE (USA) )

Eun Yeong Jeong
EUN YEONG JEONG (USA) ‘read or dead’ – Loofah, Wool, Sterling Silver, Plastic, Stainless Steel. Techniques:Dipped, Dyed, Soldered, Felted, Hand-Fabricated.

« Natural forms, processes and movement inspire me to create jewellery. When a form emerges from different elements, it tends to follow no exact model in which it crystallizes. Materials like stones or life forms like plants all have a different shape and character which has its origin somewhere in a void not comprehendible for the human mind. We try to understand how and under which circumstances they receive a life but the creation of these forms remains invisible for the human eyes. » (EUN YEONG JEONG (USA))

« Message in a jewel ….. » (chanson bien connue) – « Dear JAMES », Munich (DE) 3-7 mars 2010

DEAR JAMES - The James exchange

 » « Dear JAMES » is based around the idea of six artists sending one another a series of letters over a six month period. The contents of the letter in unprescribed, the only stipulations being that that the letter is written intuitively on a given date and posted immediately to a given address. Each artist will use the letters they have received to stimulate the creation of a collection of pieces taking what they will from their fellow artists thoughts and observations. This will result in an exhibition of contemporary Jewellery and Metal work that has been inspired by written words. The complete set of 30 letters will form a snapshot of each of our individual thoughts over a six month period from across the world, only coming together at the first showing of Dear JAMES to form the complete picture alongside the work it has inspired. » (Klimt02 information)
