 If you can check out how a car works, why not check out whether a piece of jewellery makes you look glamorous, popular, funny, sophisticated, attractive etc?
If the project works, it will open new ways to promote and sell jewellery and everybody in this business can profit from the experiment.
If it does not work, it will still be a charming utopian experiment to be remembered for years.
However, we think in a country like Germany with shared economy/swarming/DIY dominant in the public discourse the idea will work and  will sell.
More details on what exactly is Myths 2016-Test Drive soon. Stay tuned.

« Μyths 2016-Test Drive » have the honor and pleasure to announce its cooperation with PLATFORM Munich.
PLATFORM is a pilot project of the city of Munich, financed by the Department of Labor and Economic Development.
It offers space for cultural production, develops concepts for and with actors of the cultural and creative industries and builds new alliances between culture and business.
« Myths 2016 – Test Drive » is inspired by Share Economy, the discourse on saving energy and resources, as well as the change in consumption patterns in developped countries.

EXPO ‘Gioielli Alternativi’ – Fiera Abilmente di Vicenza, Vicenza (IT) – 20-23 Fevr. 2014

« Gioielli alternativi: ingegno e creatività indossabile », Vicenza, Italia

Abilmente, Fiera di Vicenza

Gioielli Alternativi

The exhibition « Unconventional Jewels: Wearable Talent and Creativity« , hosted at Abilmente on the Vicenza fairgrounds, is dedicated to body ornaments testifying to the happy mix between manual skills and courageous insights gaining their strength from artist’s experiences, preferences and personal histories.
Curated by Nunzia De Feo is organized by associazione Nurò established in Verona, that aims to enhance works by artists and designers working on contemporary jewelry.
The more than one hundred works that will be presented, created ​​by 38 artists from various countries, in their wearability, meet the need, as old as humanity, to create artifacts with which to inevitably communicate fragments of real life stories and for this reason authentic .
As stated by one of the participants, the London based artist-goldsmith Joanne Haywood in her interesting book « Mixed-media Jewellery », there is no limit to the choice of materials to use. The rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings and brooches exhibited are made ​​of ceramic, fiber, yarn, horn, leather, plastics, metals, wood, resin, silicone, enamels and fabrics, sometimes recycled and used in different ways to produce innovative solutions. Metal is not one of the preferred choices and is often absent or relegated to a marginal role.
In light of this consideration, the link is evident between this show and Abilmente, place of choice for fresh and important encounters with materials and experiences and with the objects of the workshops which characterize this fair.
In conclusion, these « unconventional jewels » possess an intriguing and captivating charm, sometimes as naive as disarming. They are characterized by a narrative or abstract language rich of symbolic or conceptual references and by a raw, bitter , pungent, or sometimes, by contrast, graceful, kind and almost childlike aesthetic. They offer rare moments of intellectual and spiritual empathy to visitors. They are « little living worlds » capable of awakening dormant emotions, never suspected inclinations and reflect today’s contemporaneity crossed by the incessant demand for vitality and positive zeal.

EXPO ‘Thread Bare’ – bijoux de Joanne HAYWOOD – Rochester Art Gallery (UK), 13 Fev – 25 avril 2010

J’ai tout d’abord découvert les bijoux de Joanne HAYWOOD à la Galerie CARACTERE, à Neuchatel (CH) : premier coup de coeur …. en attente de faire des économies ! ;-)

 Joanne haywood-- Garden Rings - 2008-09
Joanne haywood -Garden Rings – 2008-09 -coton crocheté, argent noirci

J’en profite pour vous présenter cette expostion : « Thread Bare », à la Rochester Art Gallery.
« Thread Bare » presents four contemporary artist-makers who use textiles to explore the human condition and gender-related concerns, relationships between past and present, and narratives constructed around personal and cultural identity. Contradictions and ambiguities abound in each artist’s work. Craig Fisher’s soft, sculptural installations question representations of violence and macho stereotypes whilst Lucy Brown explores the complex issue of female identity, reworking vintage garments into abstracted, figurative forms. Joanne Haywood takes part with her recent work. Mixed-media jewellery draws on the conflicts of opposites : skeletal wire forms and fleshy crocheted volumes; the natural and unnatural; the absence or presence of colour; the interplay of light and shadow.

Joanne haywood -’Bauble’ ( 2006-07) -  ‘Fibonacci’ (2008-09)  – ‘Big Red’ (2006-07)

Joanne Haywood’s work takes up the human story through pieces that reach back into the faraway history of the Thames Valley and the exposed objects that come to light through mudlarking. Taking the clay pipes that speak in their materiality of the bones and shell that also archaeologically evidence London’s history, Haywood is interested in the transitional, as seen through metal oxidisation or the juxtaposing of skeletal metal and the fleshliness of textiles.
In her Pipe Flower Neckpieces, she builds onto the historical artefact something of the living textile, reminiscent of the loss of textile artefacts to water damage and time but also indicative of the re-inventive power of threads. Like Minta’s missing brooch in Virginia Woolf’s To The Lighthouse, (in) significant objects, especially those of desire sustain and prevail, and offer themselves unexpectedly from the past for our engagement and re-visitation.

Joanne Haywood défini son travail ainsi : My work explores the essence of materials and the permanence of jewellery as physical objects and a transitional idea. Wire compositions are altered by charcoal and wood oxidisation  ….  » Drawing on the contradiction and conflicts of opposites: Skeletal forms and fleshy volumes, natural and unnatural, the absence of colour and the addition of colour, light and shadow, within and beyond control.(source blog « mar de Color Rosa« )   : the Joanne Haywood blog for more information
