« in the brooches « Memoria Aperta«  ………..  the artist effectively tests the value of the memories that bind everything and everyone. In this collection, ceramic animals, porcelain dolls, sculpted ivory shapes, woods, glass, miniatures of old photos—unearthed, inherited, and collected relics—are mixed in with incredible reproductions in lost wax of shoes, dresses, tiny tools of daily use, mini-bestiary, and gems. Paganin weaves her thick net of information on a sort of genetic algorithm in which everyone can find their reflection. Each brooch, every necklace starts a story. It’s up to us to choose the plots. »  (By Silvia Valenti on  AJF)

In esposizione per la prima volta fuori dalla sede ufficiale una delle rare collezioni pubbliche dedicate al gioiello contemporaneo. La Collezione permanente del gioiello contemporaneo della Fondazione Raffaele Cominelli comprende 78 gioielli provenienti da 25 paesi, sia europei che extra europei ed ha avuto origine nel 2011, grazie alla sensibilità ed attenzione dimostrate dalla Fondazione verso nuove forme espressive in collaborazione con l’Associazione Gioiello Contemporaneo, a partire dalla prima edizione del Premio Cominelli a San Felice del Benaco (BS).
Il percorso espositivo è articolato in quattro macro aree tematiche, a loro volta ripartite in specifiche sfere d’interesse.
La visita alla mostra è un’occasione per poter ammirare, osservare e studiare questa particolare forma d’arte, apprezzare l’ampiezza del raggio di ricerca delle forme stilistiche e delle soluzioni tecniche adottate, a dimostrazione della vivacità e dell’eclettismo di un’arte che arricchisce di sempre nuovi significati culturali il mondo del gioiello contemporaneo.
Mostra a cura di Mirella Cisotto Nalon e Rosanna Padrini Dolcini.
Gioiello concettuale
L’area comprende opere la cui ricerca verte principalmente su aspetti filosofici-concettuali indagando il mondo del gioiello e la sua relazione con il nostro vivere. Per una loro più facile lettura, sono state suddivise ulteriormente per ambiti di studio, in cui si cerca di esaminare il concetto di gioiello da uno specifico punto di vista.
Gioiello di ricerca storica
Nella seconda sezione sono stati raggruppati qui tutti quei gioielli basati principalmente sul concetto di memoria storica attraverso l’analisi e reinterpretazione delle forme in chiave attuale di tutti gli aspetti formali caratterizzanti il gioiello nel corso della sua storia (gioiello di ricerca storica formale) e attraverso lo studio e riutilizzo delle tecniche di costruzione antiche (gioiello di ricerca storica tecnica).
Gioiello di design
La terza macro area aggrega tutti quei gioielli che indagano sul concetto di riproducibilità e socializzazione del gioiello, attraverso lo studio del rapporto che intercorre tra comunicazione, materiali e nuove tecniche di costruzione.
Gioiello di ricerca estetica
L’ultima sezione comprende tutti quei gioielli il cui ambito di ricerca verte principalmente sull’estetica; analizza, investiga e studia il rapporto tra forma e bellezza, tra proporzioni e armonie.
Poiché non esiste sempre una netta separazione tra i diversi contesti di sperimentazione, nonostante la suddivisione, molti dei gioielli presenti in collezione utilizzano una commistione di linguaggi.

Giovanni Sicuro, Italy1st Prize Series of rings:  „Bianchi Untitled 1-3“, Agate, gold"Giovanni Sicuro, Italy 1st Prize Series of rings:  „Bianchi Untitled 1-3“, Agate, gold
« The effect of the rings fascinated the Jury; at first glance they are classic pieces of jewellery but the material used irritates the observer, awaking curiosity. The simple, white agate does not look like stone but rather like ivory or plastic. Only when touched is the cool, hardness of stone revealed and on closer inspection the concept of the pieces is exposed. A traditional ring is reversed here; the entire body of the ring is cut from a layer of white agate concealing the gold band. The stone is not reduced to being a decorative accessory but forms the defining element, which through exceptional craftsmanship replicates ‘traditional’ ring stones. This subtle play with the expectations of traditional ring design and with the notion of agate as a stone which is valued for its pattern or colour, won over the Jury unanimously. »
Levani Jishkariani, Georgia 2nd Prize Object: Wood, agate  Levani Jishkariani, Georgia 2nd Prize Object: Wood, agate 
« This object, made from wood and agate sticks, impressed the jury with its archaic expression. Its effect is earthy, as if it came from the distant past but at the same time it is very contemporary. The piece works on completely different levels, awakens associations and memories, from a piece of agricultural equipment to an instrument of torture, depending on the viewer’s experiences. This multidimensionality earned it second place from the jury.« 
Typhaine Le  Monnier, France3rd PrizeNecklace: Agate, elastic band Typhaine Le  Monnier, France 3rd Prize Necklace: Agate, elastic band
« The unusual combination of materials in this necklace delighted the jury. The elastic band is reminiscent of a brassiere strap; a very feminine element, which however remains mostly unseen, hidden. Through its use in a classic neck adornment, the hidden is placed centre-stage, drawing the observer’s gaze upon itself. The soft material enters into a fascinating combination with the hard, cold stone exacerbated by the positioning of the supple band, designed for proximity to the body, on the outside and the distal stone next to the body. Through the choice of materials, the colour and the form of the agate the piece relates strongly to the body. The jury particularly highlighted the haptic quality of the jewellery; when worn the cool weight of the agate is felt on the neck but the stone nevertheless fits itself to the body and is very wearable. Beyond its function as a necklace, the jury explicitly commended the effect of the piece as an object »

EXPO ‘Gioielloinarte – Il preziosismo pittorico di Gustav Klimt’ – Univesità e Nobil Collegio degli Orefici, Roma (IT) – 25 mai-5 juin 2013

Gioielloinarte – Il preziosismo pittorico di Gustav Klimt

 Gioielloinarte - Il preziosismo pittorico di Gustav Klimt- 25 mai-5 juin - Roma

Gioielloinarte – In mostra 113 gioielli unici di artisti italiani e stranieriche interpretano “Il preziosismo pittorico di Kustav Klimt”

“Il tema è sicuramente affascinante e ricco di spunti e il riscontro che ne abbiamo avuto per numero di iscrizioni lo ha ampiamente confermato”. Così dichiara la propria soddisfazione Corrado di Giacomo, Console Camerlengo dell’Università e Nobil Collegio degli Orefici, Gioiellieri, Argentieri dell’Alma Città di Roma organizzatrice del concorso gioielloinarte, bandito a inizio 2012 e che vede ora il suo completamento nella mostra dei gioielli selezionati. “Abbiamo scelto come ispirazione ‘Il preziosismo pittorico di Gustav Klimt’ nel 150° anniversario della nascita del grande artista, figlio di un orafo,” spiega il Primo Console Piero de Stefano “che ha saputo analizzare e interpretare lo spirito inquieto del proprio tempo e che, partito da una formazione tradizionale, divenne uno dei massimi esponenti della secessione viennese”.

L’inaugurazione e la premiazione dei vincitori del concorso sono in programma per venerdì 24 Maggio alle ore 19 presso la sede del Nobil Collegio in via S. Eligio 7 e la mostra rimarrà poi aperta, con ingresso libero, dal 25 maggio al 5 giugno.

Nelle due sezioni “gioiello tradizionale” e “gioiello contemporaneo” saranno presentate 113 delle 179 creazioni di artisti provenienti da Argentina (1), Austria (3), Brasile (1), Florida (1), Francia (1), Germania (9), Giappone (1), Gran Bretagna (1), Israele (2), Italia (150), Corea (2), Olanda (1), Serbia (2), Slovenia (3), Svezia (1). La selezione dei progetti iscritti è stata affidata a una Giuria presieduta dal Console Camerlengo Corrado di Giacomo e composta da: Donatella Fici, responsabile dello sviluppo prodotto della Jewellery Business Unit di Bulgari; Micol Forti, direttrice del settore contemporaneo dei Musei Vaticani; Anna Mattirolo, direttrice del MAXXI Arte di Roma; Laura Maria Vittoria Vallero, direttrice vendite Italia della Tiffany & Co.

La sezione”gioiello tradizionale” vede la presenza di 42 gioielli che privilegiano l’utilizzo di metalli preziosi e gemme naturali con limitato uso di materiali diversi, mentre nella sezione “gioiello contemporaneo” sono esposti 71 creazioni che utilizzano materiali preziosi in abbinamento a svariati materiali.

EXPO ‘True Colors’ – Museum voor Moderne Kunst Arnhem (NL) – 20 Fevr.-29 Mai 2011

True colours. New Traditional Jewellery

All over the world, jewellery is worn to decorate the body, to indicate status and identity, or for its religious significance. The biannual international design competition New Traditional Jewellery challenges contemporary jewellers from all over the world to use these emblems of historical or ethnographic significance as a starting point for new designs. In addition to this general concept, each year concentrates on a specific theme.
This year the theme is True Colours. In the most literal sense, it is about the history, meanings, value, magic, and power of colour. For example, the inhabitants of ancient Mesopotamia believed that the colour blue would protect them from evil, while 35,000 years ago primitive man used pink fibres to decorate clothing.
True Colours can also be interpreted literally as revealing one’s colours or one’s true nature. For example, the red and black pompons on the hats worn by women from Germany’s Black Forest indicate whether or not the person wearing the hat is married, and women decorate their clothing with traditional buttons.
Both meanings of True Colours appear again in again in over three hundred submissions from thirty-four countries. The exhibition presents a selection of these submissions demonstrating the great variation of colour in contemporary jewellery.

Serin Oh

The theme for the biennial international design contest New Traditional Jewellery is True Colours. This is the fourth edition of the contest and may said to have been very successful, with more than 300 entries of jewellery designers from 33 countries. The pieces submitted were judged by a technical jury of six persons, each with their own background – teacher, jewellery designer, academic, curator and fashion designer.
An important aspect of New Traditional Jewellery is that the participants should find their inspiration in historical and/or ethnographic jewellery. The theme selected this year has a double meaning. It is about colour, literally, but also means ‘showing your colours’ or ‘showing your true nature’. The entries were representative of this dichotomy with pieces showing an outspoken use of colour, but also with an enormous ethnic variety. It gave the jury a splendid opportunity to get an idea of what is happening at an international level in the field of contemporary jewellery design, with jewellers coming from countries like Finland, Iraq, Australia and Chile.
After some elaborate discussions the jury has selected the five winners listed below, among whom two students. While making the selection the jury aimed at diversity in order to show the various aspects within the theme of True Colours.

Amanda Caines (1961) multi-coloured Urban Tribal Necklace 

The multi-coloured Urban Tribal Necklace of Amanda Caines (1961) from Great Britain fits the theme of the contest perfectly. She has taken a good look at the necklaces of coloured beads worn by the Zulus where the necklace is a means of communication and the colours stand for a code that tells something about the age group and social status of the wearer. To make her contemporary version Caines uses rejected telephone and computer wires made of plastic in bright colours – she winds wool around them, fastens vintage fabrics to them and subsequently decorates them with beads.

 

The jury was pleasantly impressed by this year’s powerful entries of the students, with surprising and original designs. The prizes for the students were awarded to Penka Arabova (1980) from Bulgaria and Serin Oh from Korea.

203arabova-LRG dans Auk RUSSCHEN (NL)
Penka Arabova green brooch

Penka Arabova’s green brooch was inspired by an old Bulgarian tradition where red and white cotton threads tied together are worn as pendants, brooches or bracelets. The colour red of these so-called Martenizas is symbolic of youth and the colour white for age, and wearing them brings health and happiness. For her brooch Arabova has used different colours and materials which she associates with the old tradition in her native country and in doing so created her own modern guardian against illness and misfortune.

oh dans Carolina GIMENO (Chili)
Serin OH – ring

At first sight Serin OH’s ring looks like a bronze nugget, coloured black, mounted on a classic ring. But upon closer inspection all kinds of jewellery and parts thereof can be distinguished, among which precious stones and a small angel, which have fused together. It is a reference to the costume jewellery that is sold in the shopping centres of Korea, mass-produced and no longer bearing any relationship to the history of Korea. Serin Oh pictures the confusion and identity crisis of modern Korea by fusing these trinkets to a whole.

russchen dans Exposition/Exhibition
Auk Russchen (1971) brooch ‘Ode’

The brooch Ode by Auk Russchen (1971) was discussed extensively by the jury and became the surprising winner. To Russchen True Colours means who you are deep inside. Showing your inside to the world. Her unusual choice of material agrees with this. Using thinly cut strips of goatskin she crochets an organic form reminiscent of intestines. The tips are of pink yarn and resemble socks. The raw, almost grubby colour of the goatskin makes the small pink details stand out. She arrived at the colour pink after reading an article about primordial man using pink coloured fibres to decorate clothing as long as 35,000 years ago. Her brooch is an ode to her and our distant ancestors. 

rygg dans Hollande (NL)
 Tove Rygg (1963) necklace Link

The necklace Link by Tove Rygg (1963) from Norway does not catch the eye because of its distinct, but rather its very subtle use of colour. During a labour-intensive process she crochets long cords of gold, silver and high-grade steel. She adds small precious stones and plaits the cords into one long chain, based on old chains of the Vikings. The various stones, haematite, smoky quartz, agate and peridote, are symbolic of the various aspects of the Norwegian landscape, such as lakes, fjords and forests. The blood agate is a personal reference to her own blood and her personal relationship with her native country Norway.

SIERAAD Art Fair, international jewellery design fair – Amsterdam (NL) – 4-7 Nov 2010

SIERAAD Art Fair

list of participants 2010

SIERAAD

« People wear jewellery for very different reasons – from habit or from a form of self- respect, when one has to dress for a certain occasion, but also in memory of a beautiful moment or a certain person. Jewellery is also worn simply because one is happy to be alive, from the need for something new and in anticipation of things to come. Just as people wear jewellery for different reasons, they also differ in taste and physical appearance. Some people can spend more money on jewellery than others. But where is a contemporary selection to be found that, as far as diversity is concerned, surpasses all other forms of presentations in the way of ideas, materials and price range?

SIERAAD Art Fair, international jewellery design fair - Amsterdam (NL) - 4-7 Nov 2010 dans Alexa-Maria KLAHR (DE) sieraad2

SIERAAD was set up in 2001 as a platform for people who have chosen a fantastic profession in which they can realize all their ideas but who, being self- employed, have only limited possibilities to put their work on the market. The need for such a platform is apparent from the growing number of participants from many different countries who would like to present themselves. This year the work of independent jewellery designers from more than ten countries will be on show. The direct confrontation with the public does not only serve a necessary, economic purpose – it may also result in some feedback regarding the content of their work, which in turn may lead to new developments.
Realizing this edition of SIERAAD Art Fair means that the ideal form of the fair has been realized at the same time. With its characteristic outline and beautiful open space the former gasholder on the premises of the Amsterdam WesterGasfabriek is the right spot with the right atmosphere. The location is spacious enough to create an individual place for each designer while still maintaining the coherence. The fair displays jewellery in all its manifestations and furthermore, presents a small number of goldsmiths that design silver plate.

What goes for vases or paintings goes for jewellery as well – enough is never really enough. Obligations and restrictions are self-imposed values. What really matters is the joy that can be experienced from a work of art. Apart from the wealth of forms and colours, what is especially important are the associations one may have with it and the way one can live with it. That is why the fair is just as interesting for people who seldom buy jewellery as for collectors of these items of cultural significance. Unique objects in a variety of price ranges are to be found here as well as jewellery made in small numbers.
By means of a few centrally located presentations the range of the concept ’jewellery’ is shown. This year it will be an exhibition in which jewellery designers write history, entitled “Medieval Mystery solved”. Jewellery can also symbolize loss and sorrow, which becomes clear from the impact of “Bomb Wreck Jewellery”. As organisers of this fair, Astrid Berens and Maarten Bodt are aware that an increase in new talent is crucial for the profession of jewellery design. Therefore, this year they offer space to students of the section Jewellery & Product Design of the College of Arts in Maastricht. Using new computer technology jewellery designers associated with the Formativ from Düsseldorf make unexpected possibilities and jewellery tailored to the individual visible and tangible. For those who want to increase their knowledge about jewellery there will also be a stand with books on this subject.
In short, everybody can find something to his liking on this edition of SIERAAD Art Fair, if only, for starters, a personal remembrance of this confrontation with the many-sidedness of contemporary jewellery

NEW TRADITIONAL JEWELLERY GROWS INTO A BIENNIAL EVENT
THEME INTERNATIONAL DESIGN CONTEST AND EXHIBITION IN 2010: TRUE COLOURS
Starting with the fourth edition, New Traditional Jewellery (NTJ) will become a biennial event. The three preceding editions of this international design contest and the ensuing travelling exhibitions have been proof of the success of this project and its right to exist. The quality requirements as to the nature and scope of and entries for the event are becoming increasingly strict. In order to meet these requirements in a professional manner NTJ will become a biennial design contest.
The next edition will be in 2010. For the design contest and exhibition 2010 the technical jury of New Traditional Jewellery (NTJ) has chosen the theme ‘True Colours’ because literally as well as figuratively this theme offers considerable scope for inspiration.
The 2010 theme: ‘True Colours’
Showing your true colours means that you show what your real attitudes and qualities are. You can approach True Colours from a social perspective; society is full of topical colour coding. Other examples may be found in heraldry, folklore and science.
True Colours refers to colours and pigments. Over the centuries the palette of art history has been determined by precious mineralogical and biological pigments that were obtained from ground semi-precious stones, processed metals, and earth, seeds and plants – materials that did not always bear the test of time; in the course of time white lead e.g. turned black.
The link between the theme ‘True Colours’ and contemporary jewellery design is obvious. From time immemorial the significance and appreciation of jewellery have pre-eminently been determined by colour.
From the use of gold or silver to enamels and mineralogical and biological stones: colour is a language. In the seventies and eighties it became manifest how rich this language is. The application of textiles and Perspex in jewellery led to a new form language and use of colour – an important stage in the emancipation of contemporary jewellery design.
True Colours is about the history, meaning, value, magic and power of the language of colour.
The importance of NTJ
For every edition of New Traditional Jewellery an inspiring theme is chosen. Participants are challenged to reshape historical or traditional jewellery. They do not submit just their design – they must also submit pictures and information about the historical or traditional ornament on which their concept is based.
This is the characteristic added value of NTJ: past and present are bridged by artists in a very personal way. A technical jury selects fifty to seventy designs which are on show in an exhibition during the SIERAAD fair, where the winners of NTJ are also officially announced.
When taking part in this contest, jewellery designers from all over the world make use of a new platform where they give shape to their vision of a tradition and a theme. This design contest and the ensuing travelling, international exhibition have become a showcase for developments in contemporary jewellery in the new millennium.
Foundation Art in Business is the initiator of New Traditional Jewellery. Its objective is the promotion of knowledge and appreciation of the art of jewellery in the business world, among private individuals and civil authorities. In this ways FAB wants to bridge the gap between artists and buyers and between tradition and today’s world.

« The main topic of the event is the Mediterranean as the “sea between lands, border and connection sea between these lands”.
The Mediterranean is the line where north-west and south-east of the world meet and a crucial area for the future of humankind.
This point of contact may become, as the writer Samuel Huntington says, “the starting point for dialogue between civilisations”, where common features are mixed with differences and the respect for “diversity” is based on understanding and knowing other people’s nature.
Each community should learn from the others and teach to them: it is possible to break the “game” aiming at creating monolithic cultures only through these connections.
This was probably not understood in the past, but now a defined direction should be outlined and followed to achieve this objective.
Therefore, the “voice” of the Mediterranean is not coming from the past, but from the future, according to that balance between land and sea, belonging and freedom, where a living model does not demonize our need for establishing links or our need for freedom.
If it is true that hope is in the future, then assigning this message to an extremely contemporary and innovative art expression can help us achieving this objective.
This is the reason why Contemporary Jewellery was selected, as this is a sector of advanced research and experimentation halfway between design and tradition, as an expressive language to disseminate this message.

Through Contemporary Jewellery research, it is possible to highlight and give value to the cultural diversities characterising all communities living around the shores of this Sea.
This project has several purposes: promote the cultural heritage that has always characterised the Municipality of Nocciano, i.e. its Medieval Castle and Picture Gallery beyond the regional and national borders.
At the same time, this event includes the possibility to create a tourist-cultural movement between the Mediterranean Village and Nocciano, which are a few km far from each other.  »

« My work is inspired by old-fashioned activities such as sewing and embroidering. I admire how children transform ordinary materials into valuable assets and try to pay tribute to their game. I use natural materials – silk, wool, cotton, semiprecious stones. I produce small quantities because I work on my own. Every piece is unique and tells a story: of a couple meeting, a flower garland, and happy home. I search for vintage materials – buttons, textiles, stones. I want my jewellery to be funny but also detail orientated. I often use old garments, buttons and stones just to show that every material can carry a memory and still have a second life. » (Loukia Richards) (on CraftsCouncil page)
