EXPO ‘Linda Ezerman’ – Galerie conTemporary, Alphen (NL) – 2-30 Mars 2014

This month stands dominated by the particular jewels of Linda Ezerman :
« In my  jewellery I express how I experience the outside world. I am fascinated by the surroundings I find myself in and what these surroundings invoke in me : paradoxical feelings of freedom, security and imminent danger.
A walk in the woods, for example, invokes a feeling of freedom, yet the woods also make me feel slightly ill at ease: there always seems to be lurking something in the shadows.
With the sea I also maintain a paradoxical relationship. There is space and  unfamiliar life, which I find both fascinating and frightening because of its  incomprehensible infinity.
Moreover, the history of my surroundings create meaning. Century-old remnants of industrial life have made this landscape into what it is today and shaped the people who live here into who and what they are.
The materials I work with originate from my surroundings: felt, wood, silver and copper, mixed with polymer clay, silicone and paint. My work is wearable, which allows it to offer security or protection from that which is so intangible and yet so impressive: the surroundings in which you find yourself.«  Linda Ezerman

« I am a Contemporary Jeweller from New Zealand. My work is dream inspired fantasy with elements taken from nature.

« My work primarily focuses on form and placement on the body. I enjoy the play on contrasts within my work. By using industrial materials to create an organic flow and femininity of form from a male dominated resource I arouse the curiosities and give my jewellery a touch of playfulness. »

HELLO EVERYONE! If your in and around london, interested in jewellery or art in general, please take the time to come along to our degree show! Come and take a look at what the class of 2011 have been working towards for the past 3 years! Meet the designers, have a gander and if you fancy it make an offer on something you like the look of!

This year the exhibition will stay true to the spirit of Central Saint Martins, the work of the 47 graduating students will be unique and remarkable. With pieces varying from one-off haute-jewellery to theatre and performance pieces; from everyday wear items to exquisite gallery installations; from precious metals and stones to plastic, porcelain and moss, this collection presents the students’ responses to a wide range of starting points; the notion of beauty, dreams, architectural styles, and personal histories, and areas of exploration range from 1940s glamour, medical prosthetics, bartered jewellery and the number 1,000.

« ‘Tomorrow’s Chip Papers’ was the name of Central St Martin’s Sustainable Catwalk jewellery show held on April Fool’s Day 2011. The creativity of the students blossomed under the challenge to create beautiful, earth-friendly body adornments.
Rubbish bags, twigs and discarded kebab sticks, the detritus of our indulgence, don’t exactly shout ‘glamour’ but in the hands of those inventive students at CSM they became striking, highly original jewels for the catwalk. The BA Jewellery Design 2012 graduates had been set the task of creating sustainable jewels and the result was an explosion of originality that twists our perceptions of what jewellery can be made from.
With a tongue in cheek nod the British throwaway culture, the catalogue was printed on ‘chip’ paper and guests were given origami-folded totes made from the daily London papers, more normally to be found swirling around our ankles.
The students’ work was divided into four themes: Nature, Glamour, Fantasy and Dark. Once the music started, guests were treated an extravaganza of fantastic creations to adorn the body made in a variety of un-loved materials.  Old tights and sponges were transformed into a bulging collar as chic as Parisian couture, woven black bin bags morphed into a glossy, oversized hood and drab old cardboard became an avant-garde face and body shield. Forgotten kebab sticks found glory bristling out from an all-white head piece and collar ensemble and a dead bird looked chirpy nestled amongst a tangle of twigs that enshrouded the model.  Enjoy the show, and remember, what you throw away might well become someone else’s treasure » (thanks to The Jewellery Editor‘s page)

Sammie-Jo COXON:
Here are a few photographs of my first couple of pieces for my final year degree show at Central Saint Martins. My work will be showcased at Southampton Row on the 17th of June (press invite only), and open to the public on the 18th till the 23rd of June (12-8pm, and until 6pm on the final day).
Artist statement
« For my final year collection I have drawn inspiration from the Surrealist movement. Inspired by the work of Claude Cahun, Joseph Cornell and Hans Bellmer, I am exploring the manipulation of the body through the use of glass, crystals and precious metals. By constructing bold, simplified and skeletal shapes, I aim to contain the body in an unusual and thought provoking way. I encourage the wearer to approach my pieces with a sense of discovery, playfully inviting them to engage with the structure and the negative space that surrounds it on a new and exciting level. The piece becomes a beautifully made puzzle, as apposed to ‘just another bracelet’. »

Mel MILLER, contemporary jeweller based in Melbourne

« I completed a Master of Arts in Gold and Silversmithing at RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia in 2009, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Metalsmithing) at Arizona State University, USA in 2004. My work has been exhibited nationally and internationally including at the renowned international exhibition of emerging artists ‘Talente’ in Munich, 2011, and in ‘Jewellery Topos’ touring to Galerie Marzee, the Netherlands and Gallery Loupe, USA during 2009-11.

I’m interested in the luminosity, colour and texture of materials usually regarded as mundane, and the transformation of materials and the stories they tell. My work explores transformations of landscapes into jewellery with an Impressionist concern for colour and light, as well as the transformative effects of memory and the tradition of storytelling. Background becomes foreground; the recollected story becomes history; the mundane becomes magical!

You can also find my work at Arbor Jewels in Melbourne and Studio 20/17 in Sydney. »*TfetoNH/IMG_7413_1.jpg?width=737&height=491

Gular Mustafa – résidus organiques ….

Gular Mustafa
« Radars and sensors,
I believe that the climate of the region is almost Felted by radars , watchtowers and sensors which drain the freedom and the movement of the objects and creatures on a small portion of our planet, where the first steps have been started to leave this warm and intimate portion, the birds left the trees, air, and water, and has become the land of no life and without features of civilization which were prevalent in the world of knowledge and art, and two rivers which were the pulse of that civilization.

Gular Mustafa - résidus organiques .... dans COUP DE COEUR front

Comme des restes de corps humain, viscères non identifiés, ou restes de « mère Nature », bouts d’os, restes de coraux usés, cheveux ou poils …. tout cela nous parle de quelque chose qui a ou aurait existé, et parfois le chuchotis se fait pressant/présent avec comme des traces d’écriture, qui insiste et veut nous dire quelque chose …. à ce moment-là le support se fait concave, comme une oreille tendue …. un radar …. pour moi ce sont des signes d’Orient, mystérieux forcément pour moi qui ne les « lit » pas, et donc avec une force magique plus pressante, comme une voix de muezzin transportée par le vent …. magique !

FELT FELT FELT… jewelry – upcoming book ’500 Felt Objects’

« Trumpet sound ! Some time ago, the call for entries went out for 500 Felt Objects, a book slated for fall 2011 release*. After seeing Fashioning Felt, the terrific show she curated, I enlisted Susan Brown of the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum to serve as the juror for this book. We’ve been reviewing the images to include in the book, and I’ve come across some really exciting jewelry made with this extraordinary material!
Now, please don’t think the decisions have been made for the book–we’ve still got a loooong way to go before selections are finalized. Just wanted to share the fascinating things some talented artists from around the globe are making. » (Larkcrafts)

Sabine Lang (DE) diamond skeleton ring (Ageing time)

« The three ages of life were presented by three pieces of jewellery: three different rings with a stone.
Childhood: A huge, oversized ring made of fabric invites the young to touch it. It’s soft and pillowy, something to play with. For an adult the ring is the size of a bangle and could be worn thus.
Middle age: A great rock crystal shows us luxuriance and vitality. This ring stands for prime of life. The zircon below the rock crystal makes the sparkle and glamour more intensive.
Ageing: At the end there is just the frame left. The skeleton of a ring symbolises the momentariness of our lives and all things. » (Sabine Lang (DE)) dans Stefanie CONDES (BE)
