« Exciting materials, bright colours, sensual materiality and extraordinary forms deeply fascinates me.
This fascination is the basis, the essential mix, upon which my jewellery is growing.
For me, my works are like poems on the body, a poetry in objects. Colours and shapes forming sentences and signs, playing and communicating together and merging into new formations.
Through the effect of colours, materials and shapes, an independent, artificial and self-explanatory image
should develop and turn the wearer into a breathtaking painting.
Furthermore, my necklaces are about the unconditional beauty of colours, shapes, materials and about decorative equality. My necklaces are made of materials which fascinate me, of objects from everyday life, consumption and the environment, which represents me, my culture and the time I am living in.
I am working in different directions and searching for ways to combine diverse disciplines like painting, installation, fashion, graphic and jewellery into something new. That helps me to reflect « authentic me » and the culture I´m living in.
The restrictions of conventional jewellery form the background against which I develop my own, individual language of form, trying to find a new definition of jewellery as well as a new place for it in today’s society.
Moreover, I am questioning the boundaries between precious and non-precious. I am interested in the transformation of precious into non-precious and of non-precious into preciousness. But the question also is one about the ideal and intrinsic value of objects and their importance. For me jewellery is an inner expression, individual statement and an identification of the own personality.  » (Denise Julia Reytan)

« Snapshots »

« The fixation of the pieces of jewellery and other objects of peronal value I have collected by way of the rather unconventional technique of silicone casting, is a snap-shot of my time and the culture I am part of, the culture of an often unreflected consumers’ society, in which objects become easily disposable. With jewellery not the material but the ideal value should come to the fore, so that the personality of everyone can get expressed, shaped and reflected. The idea of democratic jewellery and of sharing my messages and my collected and unique objects is important for me. That´s also a reason why I choose the silicone casting method. There is a strong contrast between the material of non-precious silicone, the cast precious jewellery pieces and a very personal content. By changing the original materiality of the used objects into silicone or resin, a new harmony of material, colour is created, a novel entity. «

Gioielli di carta – Paper Jewelry – Bijoux de PAPIER

Milano : Gioielli di carta - Progetti di 60 designer – EXPO Milan sept-oct 2009

Organised by Alba Cappellieri, professor of jewellery design at the “Politecnico” of Milan and by Bianca Cappello, jewellery historian, Paper Jewellery: poor jewellery is an exhibition that represents the most complete exhibition dedicated to paper jewellery: 60 designers from all over the world – from Australia to Austria, from Italy to Finland, England, Germany, Belgium, Hungary, Poland – in an unmissable journey through distant cultures under the sign of only one protagonist: paper. Folded, embroidered, plaited, sewn, sponged, pleated, punched, recycled, glued, water-painted, paper takes on unimaginable decorations and shapes: rarefied like Nobuko Murakami’s origami, elegant like Daniele Papuli and Janna Syvanoja’s pleats or the Dutch Nel Linssen’s ruffs, blooming like Sandra di Giacinto’s geometries or materic like Ritsuko Ogura’s textures, joyous like Ana Hagopian’s flowers, the collages by Feroci Design or Andrzej Szadkowski’s spectra, conceptual like the Fritz Maierhofer compositions.

Paper jewellery imposes a reflection on preciousness, no longer entrusted, as with traditional jewellery, to metals and gems but rather to the project that represents the main theme of this exhibition. The vulnerability of paper is suitably pliable to design reflections that are usually far from the world of jewellery like sustainability, ecology, territorial valorisation. Free from exchange values codified by the market paper jewellery explores languages and themes covering many disciplines: ornaments, colours, shapes, surfaces, textures, by transferring influences and aesthetics not only from fashion but also from design. And so, with this aim in mind we have included the works of 5 designers, designers that usually have to measure themselves with internal decoration and lighting, who have produced their paper jewellery especially for this exhibition. They are Deep Design, Giulio Iacchetti, Marco Ferreri, Miriam Mirri, Marco Romanelli with Marta Laudani and Paolo Ulian.

Piegata, ricamata, intrecciata, cucita, spugnata, plissettata, fustellata, riciclata, incollata, acquerellata, la carta assume decori e forme insospettabili : rarefatte come gli origami di Nobuko Murakami, eleganti come i plisse’ di Janna Syvanoja e di Daniele Papuli o le gorgiere dell’olandese Nel Linssen, fiorite come le geometrie di Sandra di Giacinto o materiche come le texture di Ritsuko Ogura, gioiose come i fiori di Ana Hagopian, i collage di Feroci Design o gli spettri del polacco Andrzej Szadkowski, concettuali come le composizioni di Fritz Maierhofer.

Il gioiello di carta impone una riflessione sulla preziosità, non piu’ affidata, come nel gioiello tradizionale, ai metalli e alle gemme bensi’ al progetto che rappresenta il filo conduttore della mostra.

La vulnerabilità della carta si presta a riflessioni progettuali solitamente distanti dal mondo del gioiello come la sostenibilità, l’ecologia, la valorizzazione territoriale.
Libero dal valore di scambio codificato dal mercato il gioiello di carta esplora linguaggi e temi trasversali a molte discipline: l’ornamento, il colore, la forma, la superficie, le texture.
