Jelizaveta Suska FROZEN MOMENTS

« My name is Jelizaveta but everybody calls me Liza.
I am a jewelry artist currently located in Gothenburg, Sweden. I made my bachelors in Art Academy of Latvia where I learned classical techniques and fine art disciplines.
In 2015 I graduated from HDK, Gothenburg with my Master project.
I have also held my education in HAWK, Hildesheim, Germany and Hiko Mizuno College of jewelry, Tokyo, Japan. »

and some awards :

*Amberif Award 2016: Amber Prize

WOW ! THAT is a LADY jeweller !

FROZEN MOMENTS began in 2015, the moment when I discovered Jelizaveta SUSKA (yes, should say « Liza » but « Jelizaveta » sounds so musical and « exotic » for me ……..) !

« In this project, I am aiming to create pieces that would express solitude and moments of happiness.
I used, as a starting point, the idea of a silent moment. What is a moment?
For me it is incarnated in a stone, landscapes and blur. I use a polymer material and cover it with crushed marble. Silence is light and transparent like the material I use.
The unique combination of these two components creates the illusion of a solid stone.
I question traditional approaches and instead of valuable jewels I celebrate the idea behind the material.  For the rear of the brooches and other supporting details of the jewellery I use valuable metals like gold, gold plated silver and titanium.
My idea is to show the beauty of a moment in a landscape or stone-like abstract figures crafted in to brooches.
To make this project I crafted more than 200 hundred pieces. I selected 21 and made them into jewelry. »

« You have probably heard of the fairytale Thumbelina written by Hans Christian Andersen. When I was a child I imagined myself being as tiny as her; the gigantic world seemed to me to be more beautiful and full of tempting adventures. I still think that, sometimes.
It’s striking where our imagination can take us. When I work on my jewelry I aim to be a demiurge, to create my own new world. At times, I craft my works so that if I were to become tiny and drop onto my jewelry, I would see a marvelous landscape. Such associations, are for me a vessel that transfer ideas to the material. »

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Roxy LENTZ – re-purposed metal

Classé dans : EXCHANGE-BIJOU,Exposition/Exhibition,Roxy LENTZ (US),Salon,USA — bijoucontemporain @ 23:16

« I fabricate contemporary art jewelry from re-purposed silver plate metal » she says.
Not « I CREATE », but I « fabricate » ….  In another place she tolds us « y jewelry is made from base metal, metal found at the thrift store. It has no real value, …. in « scrap »value it is about 10 dollars …. »WHAAAAT ????!!!!!!

But in another place,  I finally find this : « Uncommon jewelry for independent women » !
YES, it is THIS : jewelry with a character , jewelry with strength !

Yes, « wild », savage jewelry, rough, « rude », with suddenly a delicate detail, something to point out, where eyes focuses …. look at this bangle … it has a « savage » look, it is not perfectly squared, the round piece is not « perfectly » closed, the patina is irregular, and suddenly, a little detail that shows that, YES, someone brought attention to it :this little « goldy bouquet » on the left … do you see it ? this little detail brings EMOTION …. it is what we call in french « un supplément d’âme » (an « extra touch of soul« ), and it is why I LOVE so much the Roxy Lentz jewelry ! Each of her jewels has its little dosis of emotion !

« My work is inspired from what others often overlook. Man makes a street, a wall to control his environment, and then life – elements – slowly decompose this to bring it back to nothing. In the interim, I see beauty.  »
