 CRUSHED by Andra Lupu, Romania - AUTOR 2017CRUSHED by Andra Oana Lupu, Romania
« A celebration of fragility, life and feelings in a beautiful brooch.
”Crushed is what you feel when something beautiful is ending, crushed is how you feel when you lose someone dear. But every ending is a new beginning, it’s up to you how you start over, or whether if you take the good or the bad of every experience. In my new collection, I use thin layers of « crushed » melted silver, to create a jewelry as a metaphor to the fragility of life, relationships, feelings”. »
 Tubular Collection by Ana Pina, Portugal - AUTOR 2017Tubular Collection by Ana Pina, Portugal
« Ana’s jewelries celebrate multiple possibilities using geometrical wiseness. To infinity and back!
”The Tubular Collection combines round wires and tubes in a subtle way, creating both minimalist and statement pieces that aim to celebrate pure geometric lines and its multiple possibilities of combination. The rationality of orthogonal alignments is challenged by the mutable character of movement and by the seeming idea that the connections between the different elements are fragile and unpredictable, which accentuates the sense that any combination is possible – from the simplest isolated element to infinity” »
16psyche Collection by Anna Börcsök, Hungary  16psyche Collection by Anna Börcsök,  Hungary 
« Can a jewelry collection be an exclamation sign? Anna’s answer is yes.
”The jewelry and the wearer should be inseparable. Without them we are naked and helpless. These pieces are fractal based Armours and they determinate the movement and actions of the wearer’s position. I was studying the Ancient societies and examining the current social models to get a predictable image of the future. The collection is an exclamation point, an invitation to face our own limitations”. »
Second Shape by Giulia Boccafogli fashion jewelry, Italy - AUTOR 2017Second Shape by Giulia Boccafogli fashion jewelry, Italy
« The forgotten becomes unforgettable.
”Second Shape is a second chance for the material to be used in a different way and also a second chance for my jewelry to become something different: an ornament or almost a dress. I like the idea that a ruin could be such a great source of beauty and this is the reason why I tried to explore a different way to work the “forgotten” leather: a super clean and modern material that can be worked in an apparent rough way” »
Night Writing by Letiția Pintlie, RomâniaNight Writing by Letitia Pintilie, România
« The sensory jewelry.
”Vision, our dominant sense, allows us to perceive the world through images, motion and colour. We use the information received from it to recognise and interact with objects and environments, interpret spatial cues. When impaired, one way of assisting it is by supplementing information through other means, like tactile. I translated this into the collection by constructing the pieces on elements that address both the vision and the touch” »
 Alien Flowers by Gülnur Özdağlar/ tertium non data, Turkey Alien Flowers by Gülnur Özdağlar/ tertium non data, Turkey
« Exploring new horizons of beauty  ”This collection is a search for creating deep sea corals and tropic flowers of another planet” »
 Necklace series by Magali Thibault Gobeil Joaillière, CanadaNecklace series by Magali Thibault Gobeil Joaillière, Canada
«  »SOMEBODY GOT CRAZY WITH THE CANDY MACHINE »
Lost in my imaginary world where everything is so delightful. That little place inside myself where everything is calm, joyful and pretty. Where my mind goes when everything is so hard outside, in the real world. These crazy forms of nature made from artificial materials are the result of that retreating into that special world that protects myself from not going crazy in the real world. They touch all our senses. We want to eat them as if they were candies, to touch them because of their appearance so smooth, spongy and colourful We all need that little break to full our body with a bit of joy. »"
AUTOR 2017 Sandra Tepla Jewellery, Czech Republic: Atomic Visions by Sandra Tepla Jewellery, Czech Republic
« Jewelry stand for a vision of future.
”Atomic Visions: Human Impulse is about futuristic textile structures, exploring empowerment/dominance in a pre-apocalyptic ‘rise before the fall’. My infatuation with textile cord has enabled me to create large scale work of colours previously unknown to me. It is this ‘WHY NOT?’ attitude that does the trick; often producing the most striking creations” »
 About Colour/ (Im)movable Collection by Konstanze Prechtl, Austria - AUTOR 2017About Colour/ (Im)movable Collection by Konstanze Prechtl, Austria
« Colour sets us free
« I use a range of colours derived from my personal life and surroundings which are applied in different ways to various materials. Depending on the line of sight, the viewer and wearer discover different colour schemes. The series “(Im)movable” reflects on Movement and Restraint – Freedom and Restriction. Although each joint is movable, they are restricting and limiting each other”. »
 REflections Collection by Kapka Jewelry, Macedonia  - AUTOR 2017REflections Collection by Jana Acevska/Kapka Jewelry, Macedonia
« Jewelry speaks for today.
“Jewels as reflection of our internality are containing stories of the present, but also past, transmitted through generations. Relating the traditional with the contemporary is an endeavour to generate new stories, unique and specific, which is the idea behind the Reflections, new KAPKA jewelry collection”. »
 Lamella Collection by Veronika Fazekas, Hungary - Playing with magic. - AUTOR 2017Lamella Collection by Veronika Fazekas, Hungary - Playing with magic. - AUTOR 2017
 Lamella Collection by Veronika Fazekas, Hungary – Playing with magic.
« With these pieces my aim was to make a setting in a ’magical way’, using optical illusion and the help of the light. To see the settled lens, you need light which reflects it into your eyes. I could reach this with the help of lamellar structures.” »
Identity by Franziska Höhne, Germany - A non-gender jewelry.Identity by Franziska Höhne, Germany – A non-gender jewelry.
« ”The collection sharpens the senses to become more sensitive in dealing with each other. It encourages thinking beyond simple categories so everyone can become aware of their own identity and develop it freely without constant external conditioning. There are no obvious gender markers in the collection. Each person can decide for themselves how the jewelry is worn, giving hints of one‘s own identity or masking it” »
Colorful Emptiness by Adriana Díaz, Colombia/SpainColorful Emptiness by Adriana Díaz, Colombia/Spain
« A piece of jewelry to remind us how time flies. Each and every moment. ”These pieces are small receptacles that actually contain nothing except a patina that is evocative of the passing of time. They are like rusty cans that have been abandoned in some forgotten corner, exposed to the elements and disuse” »
Balloon bracelet + Silver earrings by Tengely Nóra Jewelry, HungaryBalloon bracelet + Silver earrings by Tengely Nóra Jewelry, Hungary
« Playing with balloons and chain lines to find new balances.
”My jewelries are made of sterling silver with the technic of rigidified chains. Each link is soldered one by one. The balloon collection was made to find a new closure method. The bracelets consist two flat separated parts and the balloons press them together – they are the lock of the two parts”« 
 Deforested by Mona Velciov Monotip, Romania Deforested by  Mona Velciov Monotip , Romania
  Mona Velciov,  Her collection for AUTOR 16 is dedicated to transforming protest into a powerful aesthetic statement.
”Due to the last 20 years of vast illegal logging, both by private companies and the government, hundreds of thousands of hectares of Romanian forests, one of Europe’s last virgin forests, were deforested. This body of work is a protest and a confession: of the pain these actions are causing to the forests that it is also my pain”.
AUTOR 2017 - Girls in Red by Diederick van Hövell, Belgium: Girls in Red by Diederick Van Hovell, Belgium
 » What color is your mood? “With the contemporary jewel as a medium, I search, with detours, a specific color to translate a mood, a technique to express a touching feeling, to transpose emotions. A portrait, a jewel, a thought – as a testimony of an interest in the individual, as an evocation of the distinctive signs, to learn about the intersecting identities of each other. This is my subject matter”.:

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Jonathan Hens – the HIGHWAY of success !

Jonathan Hens

I discovered his works at fall 2013 during PARIS – CIRCUITS BIJOUX , at the exhibition ‘Precieux Passages’ at Bibliothèque Forney. A first « face to face » with a (very) STRONG creation !

Strong creation that encountered SUCCESS : in 2012 the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp presents his works, together with some other students, at SIERAAD 2012 Amsterdam, we saw his works at Marzee Graduate show 2012 AND 2013, an exhibition during SCHMUCK 2014 (« Lights ON/Lights OFF » 3 stations Galerie, Munich), an exhibition during SCHMUCK 2015 (« Oscure sacrifices« , together with Jorge Manilla, at 3STATIONS,  Munich), an exhibition during SCHMUCK 2016 (« Trans-it » – 3STATIONS,  Munich), has been selected  for TALENTE 2016, Munich, he is presented at AUTOR 2016 (the International Contemporary Jewelry Fair in Bucarest, Romania) ……

« After having researched different kinds of sub-and material-cultures, Jonathan Hens constructs with his own culture of tin while exploring the different qualities of the metal, making himself a master of his practice. By engraving, pouncing and printing, he develops a new dimension to the material. This results in graphic surfaces combined with archaic shapes and volumes.

Autor 2016.  Jonathan Hens. Alliages Choice.: Jonathan Hens works presented at Autor 2016  

« Jonathan Hens’ striking work speaks of recent developments in today’s world, which has seen a fusion between the banal and the subcultures and becomes a place where men and women have merged into androgynous beings.
His designs are the result of an intense search for an alternative identity. Rather than a classic example of beauty, the viewer gets to see Hens’ interpretation of it. He chose the material pewter to launch his fetishism line.
His dark look mirrors (or reflects) ‘the now’, a place where there is scope for experiment and self expression. His atypical aesthetic has no truck with traditional techniques. Jonathan Hens creates a visual game between austere forms and a rough edge finish. He heightens the geometry and black textures by using suture thread to bind the various elements.
His work raises many questions, such as what beauty means today and whether or not there is still a difference betweens the sexes.
Jonathan Hens’ work gives us greater insight into the diversity of our world. » / Jorge ManillaJonathan Hens -   THE CITY IS MY CHURCH - 2014 - #1 Necklace  -Pewter/ Sutures/ LatexTHE CITY IS MY CHURCH – 2014 – #1 Necklace  -Pewter/ Sutures/ Latex

Ignasi Cavaller (MFA 2015 at Idar Oberstein)

« I am obsessed with memories. I am scared of forgetting who I am and where I come from, my roots. I do not want to deny the evolution of my self, but I also want to keep my origins as close as possible. I try to trigger my memories through the materials I use, looking for connections with my past and my ancestors. Asking my self if what I remember is true or just another random creation of my subconscious. I based my collection on a simple but meaningful jewellery object–the locket–creating physically useless containers to give my self the feeling that I am keeping my intangible memories inside it. » Ignasi Cavaller

« Keep thinking green! » says Tami. « In this specific collection, I have decided to create a limited edition of pieces, which are manufactured in an eco-friendly manner. Instead of dying the pins, necklaces and rings with a standard Epoxy paint, I have decided to use the powder of leftover metal paint as the main coloring ingredient. »

"Sponge" by Konstantinos Georgopoulos Giftforever from Greece  « Sponge » by Konstantinos Georgopoulos Giftforever from Greece ★
“I’ve always been fascinated by objects such as wood, rocks or bone carved from the power of nature, or “bizarre” forms and combinations such as a root stuck between two rocks or a garnet crystal as a rough diamond inclusion. The greek sponges that can be found mainly in the sea of Kalymnos Island was -this time – my inspiration.”

Pressure by Panayiotis Panayi from Cyprus★ Pressure by Panayiotis Panayi from Cyprus★
Since the dawn of man, we humans had an intrinsic desire to further evolve our species.This intellectual tendency that leads us to our goals, leaves us oblivious to any negative consequences to our surroundings or ourselves. We will pursue our goals at any cost.
These days we have managed to lose control, we have imprisoned our spirit and we are fed on a daily basis a banquet of stress and pressure to further accommodate our own ambitions or the ones of our peers.
The collection is inspired by that burden; by the pressure that seems to distinguish modern man. This collection is made out of titanium (lightweight elastic, hard metal). As it wraps around the finger it applies a small amount of pressure.

Isabelle Busnel  necklaceIsabelle Busnel  necklace  My work explores all the stereotypes of classical jewellery. After a first collection playing with the kitsch imagery of cheap and popular jewellery (owls, skulls, cameos, tigers…), my second body of work focuses on the aesthetics of pearls. In my last new collection I investigate the attraction of stones. I am still using silicone rubber as material but this time I am adding translucent coloured silicone to mimic stones. White is still predominant in my necklaces and magnetic brooches but I give them a new twist with a large range of colours.
For AUTOR 2016, I am planning to show a mix of the “pearls” and the “stones” collections.

« In the physical, concrete level, we are the result of our actions , reactions and interactions. Their amount structurally determine the whole assembly which we are part of. Its isuues are also ours issues. Yet by awarness and appropriate behaviour the equilibrium can be restored.The collection is a honest and transparent statement, revealing the intentions of personal involvement and its purpose. The materials used (recycled plastic, Sterling Silver, patina, glass beads, nylon thread) and the colors chosen reveal the implicit message: « Let’s do something that matters. »

 Tule design by Helmi Lindblom, Finland [Photography by Ninni Vidgren] Tule design by Helmi Lindblom, Finland [Photography by Ninni Vidgren]
« I would like to tell the stressful world, but I can not. Nor do I want to underline the seriousness of
our time and human insecurity. Instead, I want to bring people something to hold on to.
With my current work I try to get the viewer to forget the seriousness so often connected to art. I wish that my pieces will encourage approaching touching and wearing them. I hope that the wearers lose themselves in the repeated movement of their fingers on jewelry’s surface and into the varying fingertip feelings. »

« This collection’s theme is the city and its aberrations, the way it makes us live, in small safe antiseptic spaces, the way it makes us eat, packed food of unknown origin, the way it makes us move, traveling in cars and running on treadmills, etc. My choice of expressing this frankensteined urban life is by using the idea of diorama, of architectural small scale models, but not to represent buildings and townscapes, but a traditional, natural, almost idyllic landscape populated with animals that now we usually grow for food in industrialized farms. »

 [Re]Born by Rada Ureche from Romania [Re]Born by Rada Ureche from Romania
« [Re]Born is a collection that emphasises on the recycling of materials, giving us an impulse to reuse or to give another destination to the objects we think we no longer need. It represents an unspoken dialougue between the perfect shapes, texture or finish and the small marks of crafting that remain visible as a humble recognition of our human flaws and imperfections.
By using the keum-boo technique we wanted to highlight the beauty and different shapes of melted silver, showing that we can prevent the waste of potentially usefull materials. As gold fusions with silver, so does every action or innaction we have upon the world we live in.
Materials used: recycled sterling silver, 23.5k gold sheet. »

 "Thinking Building" collection by Etay Malka from Israel « Thinking Building » collection by Etay Malka from Israel
« This project deals with the architecture in Tel Aviv. The differences in the city today are mainly reflected by the character of the buildings and their height. Bauhaus buildings with 2 floors and rounded balconies stand alongside the skyscrapers, offices and cranes. »

  THE UNPREDİCTABLE FORM/FOAM collection by Hakan Aktug from TurkeyTHE UNPREDİCTABLE FORM/FOAM collection by Hakan Aktug from Turkey

By Corrina Goutos - representing Germany, from AmericaBy Corrina Goutos – representing Germany, from America
Based on my exploration of the archetype of The Souvenir, my current collection looks at the things we take, imbue with a memory, place or moment, and the objects and traces that we leave behind in the process. The ephemeral dialogue between man’s rituals and nature’s forces; between environment and inhabitants.
In a culture of convenience, consumption and transience, I seek out the lost and found objects and site installations that have the memory of a person. They are the unfinished stories of affection, and neglect, visible in objects we interact with.

 Christine Jalio”Loss” by Christine Jalio from Finland –
“The “Loss”- collection is a continuum of my earlier “Past, Loss, Future”- collection which tells a story of aging, personal loss and life before and after big turning points in life. In the new ”Loss”- collection I have been concentrating on personal loss, sadness, and loneliness; on what happens after you loose someone you love. I have gone even deeper into the emotional turmoil of an individual person and tried hard to capture these feelings in my work. The pieces have a sense of comfort and safety to them and look very heavy, but are actually really light. Like a person who carries great sadness within, I wanted my pieces to be very quiet and scream very loud at the same time.”

AUTOR 13 : Focus Designer Alina Carp -

Alina Carp : during AUTOR13 2015 (on 9–10 of May, Bucharest, Romania) I was appointed to be the Focus Artist in Autor this spring edition

Alina Carp  is the FOCUS DESIGNER for ‪#‎AUTOR13 ‬! - Alina Carp "Faith goddess  Panthesilea"Alina Carp « Faith goddess  Panthesilea » – Alina Carp  is the FOCUS DESIGNER for ‪#‎AUTOR13 ‬! -

JOYA 2014 : Alina Carp presents « Undisclosed » collection  – Materials: brass, steel mesh, resin, pigments, gold leaf and hematite beads. « The collection describes an interior world where shapeless, ethereal visions are floating, suspended between two worlds: the world of dreams and the world of reality. They represent my inner voices, emerging from the deep layers of the subconscious, whispering to me and displaying -like in a mirror chamber- a multitude of possible « ME »-s.« 

« Some of the pieces that I presented in Joya were about one of the essential myths of  Romanian folklore. I documented by reading Mircea Eliade’ s “Comments about the Legend of Master Manole” It’s a legend full of emotional and even if not singular in the European area (there are Bulgarian, Serbian versions), many people did not know it and were heavily impressed. One of the brooches represent a bright Ana and her spirit, a face like a transparent aura, immortalized in the wall. On the back of the brooch, on the part that is not seen, there is another face, hidden, that only the one who wears it knows about it. That unseen face represent the sacrifice that we all do for our accomplishments in life and only us know the measure of it. The audience was visibly interested in the history full of emotional and many returned to my booth accompanied by friends, especially to see this piece and asking me to tell the story over again for their companions, Even the organizers of the fair, captivated by the story, often brought visitors to my stand, showing them the brooch and telling them the legend they got to know by heart. »Alina Carp - "Undisclosed" - brooch - 2014   - steel mesh, silver, brass, resin, pigments, hematite.Alina Carp – « Undisclosed » – brooch – 2014   – steel mesh, silver, brass, resin, pigments, hematite.
