« While attending this year’s SNAG Conference in Houston, a chronic nagging question was amplified. What, exactly, is it that I do ? In passing conversations I never seem to be able to explain it to any acceptable degree without endless digressive hurdles. In the simplest terms I set out with the word “jewelry” though even this is a personal conversational concession. The litany of descriptors we can now alter jewelry with can leave a person breathless – art jewelry, contemporary jewelry, sculptural jewelry to name a few. Casual conversations always include “no, I don’t make that kind of jewelry. And when I start using phrases like “abstract life forms” and “composite resin” people’s faces screw into frustration. When I’m feeling less motivated I just say “I make jewelry out of plastics . . . various plastics”. But it feels condescending both to whomever I’m speaking with, and what it is I like about my work. I’ve spent nine years and borrowed tens of thousands of dollars for two degrees – a BFA with the words “Metalsmithing and Jewelry Making” at the end and an MFA with the alternate “Jewelry and Metal Arts” attached. But I find none of this mixing and matching of terminology to be of any help when trying to actually articulate what it is I do with all of my time. »

« 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)

Momentaufnahme_9 par 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. «

COUP de COEUR ! Horse Hair Jewellery by Chilean Designers

COUP de COEUR ! Horse Hair Jewellery by Chilean Designers dans Amerique Latine manos+2+livPZ0_0064comunidad+plaza+2+liv dans COUP DE COEUR
Artesanas RARI (Rari is a small, pre-mountainous town 305 Km. South of Santiago in Chile)

« CUENCO is an aesthetic concept under which we develop and produce accessories based on the handcrafted tradition in Rari’s horse hair weaving, in Chile.
Our creations differ from the traditional forms of this type of crafts (figurative motives) being outlined for its innovation, plastic sensibility and for presenting a change of the handcrafted tradition with contemporary design of abstract lines. It is necessary to mention that the creations of CUENCO have received the “Recognition of excellence UNESCO for the handcrafted products « ; worldwide distinction for quality creations in manufacture and innovation where our work turns out to be formulated from a look that values the tradition and the most experimental aesthetic experience.
At present we are dedicated to develop a line of complements of major scale and complexity . In these new creations we will put an accent in the innovation in size, materiality (the silver is in use only in the hooks) and the abstract lines of our designs, with clear architectural references.

« Concept: Paula Leal is a designer, artist and architect. She studied at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica of Valparaiso in Chile. She has been involved in a different kind of architectural projects. During her professional career she has implicated herself into graphical design and furniture design, supporting always a strong interest in the experimentation of different techniques applied to diverse decorative objects. During the year 2007, Paula was seduced by the delicacy and color of the crafts weaved in the Rari’s horse hair technique. Then she meets Mrs. Alba Sepúlveda, artisan born in Rari, living now in Santiago, with more than 40 years dedicated with love and enthusiasm to the labor of the horse hair weaving. Between them, there arises a creative dialog which materializes in diverse works of more experimental and abstract character. In spite of possessing different aesthetic looks, both embark themselves in the production of a line of pieces of decorative contemporary accessories, which reveal and value the great versatility of this technique. In these small works, the feminine internal world continues to be expressed with the same delicacy, laboriousness, color and love that are found in the most traditional works, but with motives that speak to us from an urban environment and crossed by the look of Paula Leal’s profession: architecture.

bijoux de France, bijoux « bonbec » en résine

« Elles sont faites à la main à Chantenay. Dans la boutique du Museum of modern art de la Grosse pomme, les bijoux des Pingouins racontent un peu de Nantes.
On en mangerait ! Couleurs acidulées, formes tendres, toucher velouté, ces bijoux ressemblent à des bonbecs. Bracelets, bagues, pendentifs, broches naissent dans l’atelier des Pingouins à Chantenay.

Blandine Berthelot et Matthieu Rébillard sont deux Pingouins créateurs de bijoux made in Chantenay.< /> » width= »377″ height= »249″ /></p>
<p><font size=Créée en 2004, la petite entreprise de Blandine Berthelot et Matthieu Rébillard ne connaît pas la crise. « Nous en vivons tous les deux mais on ne roule pas sur l’or pour autant ! », sourit Blandine, ancienne étudiante en design. Leurs créations épurées, accessibles, habillent aussi bien les élégantes des bords de Loire que celles d’Anvers, Tokyo ou San Francisco. « La boutique du Moma à New York est un de nos meilleurs clients. » Un bon filon, ces échoppes de centres d’art contemporain que le duo voudrait développer, à travers notamment sa participation aux grands salons européens.
Tout part de cette résine polyester, achetée liquide et translucide en fûts de 220 kg. « Lors de son dernier stage, Matthieu a travaillé la résine. À l’époque, j’étais très branchée bijoux, je planchais sur la couleur, je me suis dit que la résine offrait d’énormes possibilités. » Brillante, mat, translucide, cette matière permet de jouer à l’infini sur les textures. Dans leur atelier, près des chantiers de l’Esclain, la résine passe entre les bras de machines très spécialisées. Moulée, durcie, poncée, elle devient parure multicolore. « Moins dure que le verre, elle se raye plus facilement mais est moins cassante. » Dans leur collection cohabitent des modèles d’origine plébiscités, accessibles (entre 20 et 30 €), et des produits « sur lesquels on se lâche un peu plus en création », plus chers, comme les colliers Paula.
En septembre, le nouveau site internet des Pingouins permettra la vente en ligne. D’ici là, rendez-vous avec Blandine et Mathieu à la boutique du musée des Beaux-arts de Nantes à la fin du mois. » (Magali GRANDET –
