and the last two from ALCHIMIA :

« Alchimiajewellery school presents ‘Tastes just like chicken….’ the Quaternitas exhibition 2011, curated by Ruudt Peters.
Michelle Kraemer and Maru Lopez present the final results after a yearlong development under the guidance of their tutor and curator. The work of both started with an exploration of gender, identity, sex, skin, touch, within the borders generated around those concepts by the individual and society.
The artists have worked in a close dialogue and with corresponding materials like fabric, latex, nylon and foam, but the resulting jewellery pieces show clearly their difference in cultural identity and personal interest.
Set up in the beautiful entrance hall of Alchimia, the exhibition is articulated in two installations referring to the display of ‘organic material’ , one related to commerce (the butcher) the other to curiosity and science (the natural history museum).«

Découverte : Ulrike Strempel – knitted jewelry

Ulrike Strempel – ring & earrings (primé au Legnica Festival)

« Germany’s Ulrike Strempel has created a collection of jewelry that is largely bold with angles and color and hard lines. However, there are several delicate, knitted silver and gold pieces that made me want to whisper. . .so softly« (DailyArtMuse)


Myung Urso – sculptural jewelry forms, between metal and fiber

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Myung URSO (S.KR),www dailyartmuse — bijoucontemporain @ 0:49

« The South Korea native stitches together the best of her history, education and life experience, carefully pairing materials like cotton and sterling silver or loofah and pearls. Myung URSO ’s jewelry has been exhibited in prestigious shows around the country, including the Philadelphia Museum Craft Show and SOFA NY.«  (DailyArtMuse)

Myung URSObrooch ‘Korea‘ – silk, thread, oriental ink, lacquer, chrysoprase, sterling silver – 2008

« My artistic imagination transforms itself from life and nature. Painterly and sculptural jewelry forms convey personal stories and memories from life. The forms rendered through collaboration between metal and fiber reflects my interest for abstracting from nature. I challenge myself to emphasize the special characteristics and beauty of materials while expanding the boundaries in creating an original identity for my jewelry art form.« (Myung URSO , South Korea)

« Calligraphy and sewing serve as my fundamental techniques, which I have practiced throughout my lifetime.  I also found that my elderly mother’s traditional way for the preparation of food, such as the shaping of rice cake and arranging vegetables for winter storage, combined with my previous work experience as a reporter and curator for art and craft have shaped my own interpretation of contemporary jewelry. » (Myung Urso)

COUP de COEUR ! Anna Wales : felted and forged

Classé dans : Anna WALES (UK),COUP DE COEUR,feutre / felt,www dailyartmuse — bijoucontemporain @ 0:59

« My work is designed to create a powerful visual impact along with an enticing tactility.  It features a combination of felt and silver, or of oxidized silver with polished precious metals which are arranged to form stark contrasts or subtle transformations throughout a singular piece……. Having initially studied textiles during my art foundation I found it natural to continue using these materials when I went on to study Jewellery at Middlesex University.  I was particularly attracted to this course due to the diverse nature of the work that it produced and whilst I was there we were encouraged to explore and experiment along with learning about materials more traditionally associated with jewellery »

COUP de COEUR ! Pawel KACZYNSKI where textile meets metal

« pawel kaczynski : metal pleats, crinkles and wrinkles »

« Textile meets jewelry in an explosion of color and texture in this body of work.  The closures on Kaczynski’s cuffs and collars are a striking example of how an artist’s work can sing when the functional elements of a piece are incorporated into the design. I want to touch them and memorize the way they feel under my fingers.  Wrinkles have never been so sexy.«  (
