New amazing work by Victoria Ioannidou jewelry-object designer,maker
The time has come to leave behind and part ways with all that is negative and preserve the quality of my life
because I am the one who will choose …to give up….. to live in the past…. to loose my fear…
OR to react… to feel anger… to fight ..and finally to move on.
You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” ― Mae West
I had to destroy the path ,leave no trace, so the evil could not follow me

(58) No Expiry

ALAFRANGADimitar Stankov seeks a way to depict the sound images emerging in human mind after its interaction with certain sound or traditional Bulgarian folklore music combining craftsmanship and innovative technology. The music represents the traditional manners and it can be used to chase away evil spirits or to bring happiness and joy. This duality inspires him to materialize the sound that can be heard but cannot be felt by touch.NIGHTLIGHT SKIN: Jonathan Hens’ work speaks of recent developments in today’s world, which has seen a fusion between the banal and the subcultures and becomes a place where men and women have merged into androgynous beings. His designs are the result of an intense search for an alternative identity. Rather than a classic example of beauty, the viewer gets to see Hens’ interpretation of it.

(Lost) Paradise, with Ying Chen(Lost) Paradise, with Ying Chen
« As a jewellery artist, I believe my work is the bridge connecting myself with the outside world, which shows my thoughts, inner feeling and philosophy. What reflect on me from outside? How do I reply to it? I address my answers by making the questions tangible and personal. Fortress Besieged is one of my projects. The whole project is about my thought and feeling of the renovation in my city. “Shikumen”, the typical kind of buildings in Shanghai which I used to live, has been replaced by high-rises. I can not help but doubt, whether the demolition of Shikumen is necessary. Shikumen is like a paradise of all the memories from dwellers who have spent most of their time in Shikumen. However, their opinion was neglected. My work shows my inner struggle and sadness in the journey of finding the right answer. »

« The piece ‘Danger… woodworm!’ it is part of the exhibition ‘Life in the Urban Paradise’ , which was born from a previous collection, ‘Cities’. Nowadays, urban parks and public gardens are a safe haven. They are green areas where we can relax and recover the energy we nees for life. This piece is a subtle critique our society, because I think the man is the woodworm of the planet. Love the planet is to love ourselves. »

« Ominus, Pesimistic,Disapointing, contradicting,negative messages deprive the oxygene from our little but important beings.. However there is a small spark of hope far away that fills our dull lifes with color and light. My own paradise is my concern to strengthen the spark ,prevent and restrain the evil.. »

(Lost) Paradise, with Viktoria Münzker(Lost) Paradise, with Viktoria Münzker
« Breathless attention fills two parts of a complex called life. Tenderness and violence, love and hate, harmony and conflict, birth and death, heaven and hell. The emotional side of my work is based on my personal experiences. Suggestions for the creation of Paradise were my emotional forces, experiences and mental images. Paradise – Garden of Eden from that we were expelled forever, and what we must now create alone. This term, in old Sumerian « Adina » – Garden means a place that seemed to be fruitful… Did we lost it? This land is real, it is an another dimension in this world, the real paradise can’t be lost. It is inside of us. If we believe that we are a part of it, there will always be a place that we call paradise. Jewellery is my art to show the world my own inner self, the inner world where I feel safe and beautiful. It’s the inner paradise that survives only with our power. »

« My paradise is a small space rediscovered in the middle of a chaotic reality, tended to the geometric and formal. A non-enclosed space, but yet communicative with new points of view from different perspectives. Apparently aseptic but a generator of light, ideas, energy, thus of a new life! Il mio paradiso è un piccolo spazio ritrovato fra una caotica realtà, teso alla pulizia geometrica e formale. Uno spazio non chiuso, ma comunicativo di nuovi punti di vista, di diverse prospettive. Apparentemente asettico ma generatore di luce, idee, energia, dunque di nuova vita! »

« The Archangel into pieces / THE BODY, THE HEART, THE WING The falling Archangel, crashing into pieces, is the metaphor of man who is walking on a road paved of self-destruction. Falling on lost paradise, The Archangel crashes into pieces: his heart moves from the body in order to survive – aware that his own wing will lead himself safe. On the contrary, the body will wear down gradually. The stone we have used for creating the three parts of The Archangel testifies, with its color and its porosities, the consequences of its own closeness with the human being. »

(Lost) Paradise, with Nanna Melland(Lost) Paradise, with Nanna MellandLost Paradises. In 1977 Bob Marley sang; “Exodus, movement of Jah people!” His words could not fit better for the situation of refugees today. Masses of people in a seemingly endless flow, leaving their home country in search of a better future somewhere else. Paradise lost. Paradise search. I chose to work with the suitcase as an object of our time. A time of flux, of movement, of wanted and unwanted journeys. It can be disturbingly absent or disturbingly present. For the exhibition Lost Paradises, I present a serie of rings called Suitcaserings. Cast in bronze in the lost wax technique, coloured afterwards. You need strength to wear and balance these heavy skin coloured Suitcaserings on your hand, A strong grip to get by in this world of suffering. Of Lost Paradises. »

Sebastien Carré - Lost Paradise(Lost) Paradise, with Sébastien Carré
« Just imagine… Living in a world in which we would not have destroyed our relationship to nature. In which, the society, the moral, the value or our belief would not have put us in a virtual cell. A world of difference, of similarity, of ambiguity but after all isn’t it what is making a more interesting world. Vegetation, Animal, and Mineral are all combined in objects reminiscent of organic forms, the shape of the central figure in all form of shamanism around the world, the Tree that connects us all together. Mixing materials in order to create a symbolic life in an object by using interactive mediums allows me to wake up a body which tends to be more insensitive due to an over-communicativity of society. Let’s hope for a world with more shamanism, more bound between all living forms. Let’s Cherish the diversity in our small world, being together is already a treasure. »

Rosa Borredá -  Lost paradise(Lost) Paradise, with Rosa Borredá
« LOST CIVILIZATIONS Accumulation of different objects left over the centuries that are worn, eroded by time. Ancient architectures with traces of gold leaf and polychromy. Lush vegetation but withered at the same time. Paradise and decay, everything has a place in the lost and imaginary paradises. »

(Lost) Paradise, with Claudia Steiner(Lost) Paradise, with Claudia Steiner
« The earth as the ideal for a happy and content existence, with indescribable natural beauty. Is this still true? This is not the case anywhere in the world. It is precisely our time that makes us doubt whether or not this is indeed true. Everyone has their own ideas of paradise and can explore it in a variety of ways. Sometimes with the look at hidden details sometimes viewed at large. The contrasts of geometric lines and round forms, the uneven surface, reflect the contrasting variety of our earth. The way to the personal paradise in life is different and sometimes requires detours, means unevenness in the life cycle – one up and down – in order to somehow have found his personal ideal of a happy and content life. Not everything is at first sight recognizable as such, some « paradise » requires a longer confrontation with it and will only be discovered in small. »

(Lost) Paradise, with Nadine Smith(Lost) Paradise, with Nadine Smith
« I live in Wellington and work part time as an artist and nurse. Caring for others has developed my fundamentally humanist philosophy. Fueled by this and the fragility of life, pieces often reference the relationship we have with the developing technological world and how this creates possibilities for enhancement or re-creation of our environment, our lives, even ourselves. Being an avid recycler with magpie tendencies and an active imagination lends itself to a diverse range of work. Medical and other recycled paraphernalia when used out of context can create a tension between the familiar and the unknown. The works aim to intrigue, inviting the audience to reflect and make connections from their own life experiences. »

« Demolition Neckpiece This piece is made using found electrical components gathered at the beach beside Cockenzie coal-fired power station, along the coast from my home. The power station, which dominated the coastline since the 1960s, was demolished in 2015. It was the cause of much pollution, changing the nature of the coastline, creating miles of new land with infill of the spoil it generated and leaving huge ‘lagoons’ of fly ash, some of which are now reserves for birds and wildlife. The power station destroyed a wild, natural coastal habitat, but nature is slowly reclaiming the site. In using found plastic components from the site, which have been sea and weather-worn in combination with silver and opals, I aim to question notions of preciousness and disposability. »

« Return to origin. We yearn for happiness, seek peace, love. And, generally, we seek outside ourselves. I suspect none of this depends on external circumstances. My heart tells me that the lost paradise is inside me, waiting to be found. »

(Lost) Paradise, with Wiebke Pandikow(Lost) Paradise, with Wiebke Pandikow
« Without the ubiquitous plastic our civilization could hardly have become what it is today, but at the same time it is a burden on the environment with far-reaching consequences. Especially plastic bags are an obvious symbol for mindless consumerism and a throw-away society. This makes them so interesting for me to work with, to create from them, with the help of a clothes iron and a soldering iron, textures and structures that recall forms of the natural world which we have set ourselves apart from. Hand-formed leaves form lush necklaces, but they can only ever be pale images of the real thing. We feel safe with plastics, at home and comfortable in our modern paradise of artificiality. But it is the natural world around us which is the real paradise, in danger of becoming a paradise lost. »

« My natural paradise, my oasis, flows the meandering waters of the Parana River Delta. I find no better place to muse about life and to relax than when I am rowing my boat in this maze of water and rainforest. Every concern or fear seems to vanish while I row my way through this cluster of islands. Nature in all its glory to admire: golden water, green trees and vines and colorful birds. This brooch illustrates the landscape of this Delta, its colors and textures, and the feelings it arises in me. »

« Fruitfully Yours, extinction With this work I focus on today’s paradox: simultaneous population growth and entering the sixth mass extinction. Jewelry from Extinction are silent in comparison to their colorful opposites (Fertility) like extinction is silent in comparison to birth. With color contrast from black balloons I want to put forth the feel of fading away. «

EXPO ‘Omnia Vanitas’ – Wcc-bf Mons, Anciens Abattoirs de Mons (BE) – 24 Oct. 2015-10 Janv. 2016

Omnia Vanitas By Wcc-bf Mons

Exposition du 24/10/15 au 10/01/16 aux Anciens Abattoirs de Mons

puis/et à la Galerie Koma, Mons  du 24 octobre 2015 au 20 décembre 2015



Résultat de l’appel à candidature aux créateurs des pays de l’Union européenne. Toutes disciplines des arts appliqués, ainsi que design, photo,…
Resultat of the call to the artists from the European Union countries. Each discipline within the applied arts, as well as design, photography,…

Vanity is a theme as old as the existence of Art itself. “Remember you will die” whispered the slave to the Roman General during the triumphs. Nowadays, this superstition which became obsession cannot be hidden. Her rebirth in the Contemporary Art is such that Vanity has become true fashion or a lifestyle. “Vanitas vanitatum, omnia vanitas”. How better than the current age of technology and overconsumption to update this adage? In this month of the dead, Omnia Vanitas proposes a stop in space-time, a time for reflexion to ask themselves the right questions once again.
On this occasion, the WCC-BF and the Koma Gallery exposed 62 artists from Belgium, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, France, Italy, Portugal, Poland, Finland and Estonia. In their own way, each of them present their personal interpretation of death and Vanity. As in the exhibition of the European Price for Applied Arts, the artworks will be seen with all the contemplation and the reflexion it requires. In its own way, Omnia will propose to visitors a more intimate perspective on our relationship with life and death.

Bijoux Celtes - de Trésors en créations - 21-06 - 9-11 2014 - Haguenau (France) - avec bijoux de Sébastien Carré

Les collections les plus prestigieuses du Musée Historique de Haguenau concernent les bijoux de l’Âge du Fer. Afin de mettre en valeur cette richesse ainsi que le passé archéologique de la forêt de Haguenau, l’exposition « Bijoux Celtes – De trésors en créations » confronte parures, bracelets, colliers et autres torques à la création contemporaine avec le concours de créateurs indépendants et d’institutions artistiques et joaillières.

En partenariat avec des créateurs indépendants et des institutions de formation

reconnues (La Table d’Emeraude, Haute Ecole des Arts du Rhin (HEAR), Pôle Bijou  Baccarat), l’exposition offre une lecture contemporaine du bijou celte et fait découvrir les techniques et savoir-faire des artisans d’art d’hier et d’aujourd’hui.

« Bijoux Celtes » se découvre sur trois lieux : Musée Historique, Chapelle des Annonciades et Espace Saint-Martin. Tout trois situés au centre-ville de Haguenau, ils permettent de découvrir différentes thématiques de l’exposition et se visitent sans ordre chronologique défini.


A l’Espace Saint-Martin (place d’Armes)
Dédié à la forme et à l’esthétique, l’Espace Saint-Martin est l’écrin des parures d’exception et fait découvrir les différents types de bijoux celtes dont les formes et décors ont évolué au fil du temps.
Exposés en parallèle de leurs homologues contemporains, les bijoux anciens montrent néanmoins toute leur actualité. Les techniques décoratives utilisées par les Celtes sont d’ailleurs toujours utilisées de nos jours.

Pour l’exposition Bijoux Celtes plusieurs créateurs du Pôle Bijou Baccarat ont accepté de se prêter au jeu en créant des bijoux s’inspirant d’authentiques bijoux celtes.

« Me and Tanel only have palindromes on our minds right now… Here is the concept behind our collaboration and our two upcoming exhibitions in Munich next week.
Tanel Veenre & Märta Mattsson
[palindrome] is a word, phrase, number or other sequence of symbols or elements, whose meaning may be interpreted the same way in either forward or reverse direction.
Palindromes like, A NUT FOR A JAR OF TUNA or EVIL RATS ON NO STAR LIVE, might not make so much sense to us but nonetheless they are symmetrical riddles that play with our perception of how we see things. Many believe that symmetrical objects have an inner harmony, and value them for this. In nature, symmetry is approximate. For example, plant leaves, while considered symmetric, rarely match up exactly when folded in half. If there is no such thing as perfect symmetry in nature, can we find perfection in imperfections?

What happens when two artists decide to mirror their own work but also reflect and bounce off each other’s visual language? Will we BORROW OR ROB ideas from one another? Will we feel the need to be the one who MUST SELL AT TALLEST SUM? Will our work end up at the same LEVEL? Or will ‘DAMMIT I’M MAD!’ for doing this pop up in our heads? Our new series of work has been created under an echo of two minds exploring the contradictory meanings of symmetry in nature and life. Mirrors are commonly used for personal grooming or admiring oneself. In the mirror you can see yourself, but not quite… The mirror image is reversed. In a mutual admiration can we create a MEGA GEM? This might get interesting, WON’T IT NOW? Have we hit your RADAR? Come and see this TOP SPOT that is TOO HOT TO HOOT! »

Y’a un OS ………..

« Y’a un OS » ….

this expression (« Il y a un os » or « tomber sur un os » [to hit a snag]) means that there is a problem when you « find a bone » … but the dog seems happy when finding a bone ??! why men are not happy ??

But, with this post, perhaps women will be happy when « finding bones » ! ;-)

« …I recently began using pre enameled sheet steel, forming it, soldering it, and creating simple forms that reveal the life cycle of the resulting piece. They are intentionally raw, their surfaces containing hundreds, thousands of little cracks.  Solder is left on the surface, flux will come out over time, and because the steel is distressed (by forming), it will continue to shed bits of enamel.  They will age and evolve, gaining rust losing enamel while the diamonds and rubies on the surfaces will remain the same. I am considering my own evolution and what it means to transition into the next period of my life.  In a culture that values youth as the highest form of beauty in an industry (jewelry) motivated by beautification, these pieces reflect back the changes I see in my mirror every morning.  This jewelry will eventually disintegrate leaving some lonely diamonds and rubies behind. (In my imagination, they are the true loser in the story). Optimistically, I want this work to “die” making room for what will come next.  Part of my responsibility as an artist is to think of future generations and what they might need in order to make room for what jewelers sometime down the road will want to make… »

Margherita Marchioni - collana di pastaès Propeck : “Le collier de la Reine”- collier géant d’un mètre par un mètre entièrement composé de pâtes alimentaires.
Collier exposé en juin 2007, à l’occasion de la 5e édition du Parcours Saint Germain ,intitulé « SWEET’ ART ou L’Art de la Gourmandise » (MERCI au blog « Carnets d’une Marraine« )

Agnès Propeck : “Le collier de la Reine”

« Entièrement composé de pâtes alimentaires percées et cousues, il est refait à l’identique d’après une gravure de l’époque. Le joyaux original, qui comportait 540 diamants, n’a jamais été porté ni commandé par Marie-Antoinette, et a mystérieusement disparu. Présenté chez Christian Lacroix dans une vitrine écrin, il ressurgit du passé, et malgré sa facture inspirée de l’enfance, le collier fait parfaitement illusion…. à s’y méprendre.  Galerie Alain Gutharc, Paris « 


Exposition « Al dente » organisée en 2005 par Claude Deloffre à l’(ex) galerie Food, Paris : la galeriste parisienne Claude Deloffre a eu l’idée taquine de proposer l’idée du fameux « collier de pâtes » aux designers suivants :
Abdi Abdelkader –  Antoine et Manuel –  Sam Baron –  Pascal Bauer –  Christian Biecher –  Mathilde et Marc Bretillot –  Philippe Di Méo –  Christian Duc –  Pierre de Gastines –  Adrien Gardère –  Kristian Gavoille –  Christian Ghion –  Éric Gizard –  Olivier Guillemin et Olivier Védrine –  Benoît Méléard –  Marco Menacci –  Jean Oddes –  Nestor Perkal –  Andrée Putman –  Eric Robin –  Pucci de Rossi –  Matt Sindall –  les TSE & TSE –  Frédérique Valette / Chrys Campos  –  2/ Sam Baron pour l’exposition « Al dente » organisée en 2005 par Claude Deloffre à l’(ex) galerie Food, Paris  —
3/ Olivier Vedrine et Olivier Guillemin pour la même exposition

Claude Deloffre (…) a eu l’idée, pour la fête des Mères (2005) , de demander à une trentaine de designers connus de travailler sur le thème du collier de nouilles. Ainsi, Marc et Mathilde Brétillot ont créé une colonne vertébrale de dinosaure longue de trois mètres, Andrée Putman a imaginé un collier en boules noires de macaroni et Christian Ghion a transformé les ‘fusilli’ en un bijou rare recouvert d’une couche d’argent…

  »Bande de nouilles ! -
« Depuis l’invention de la coquillette et de la pâte alphabet – merci Rivoire & Carret -, il n’est pas une maman qui se soit vue régalée, à l’occasion de la fête annuelle consacrant son statut, du sempiternel collier enfilé nouille après nouille par la chair de sa chair, le sang de son sang. Inscrite depuis la maternelle au programme des travaux pratiques dits d’éveil, cette nouillerie annuelle peut aussi prendre l’allure d’un « Maman je t’aime » en vermicelles à la sauce tomate séchée sur fond de papier de crèche avant de se transformer en travail du galet pour vide-poches (ça c’est pour la fête des Pères), nettement plus embarrassante.

C’est par et pour ce souvenir, «autant attendrissant qu’atroce», que la galeriste parisienne Claude Deloffre, fondatrice de la librairie culinaire Food, incontournable cocotte des signatures et lectures gourmandes du jour, a imaginé, telle une maîtresse de CP, de soumettre à la question une classe entière de designers. Au menu, interprétation espiègle et contemporaine du collier de pâtes par vingt-cinq « écoliers » (de nouilles) allant du chouchou au retardataire, du premier de la classe au petit Nicolas, du redoublant au planqué radiateur. Ont répondu à l’appel, et par ordre alphabétique : Abdi Abdelkader, Antoine et Manuel, Sam Baron, Pascal Bauer, Christian Biecher, Mathilde et Marc Bretillot, Philippe Di Méo, Christian Duc, Pierre de Gastines, Adrien Gardère, Kristian Gavoille, Christian Ghion, Éric Gizard, Olivier Guillemin et Olivier Védrine, Benoît Méléard, Marco Menacci, Jean Oddes, Nestor Perkal, Andrée Putman, Eric Robin, Pucci de Rossi, Matt Sindall, les TSE & TSE, et Frédérique Valette. Bref, rien que du gratin. Exposés et vendus jusqu’au 22 juillet chez Food, 58, rue Charlot, 75003 Paris. Pour collectionneurs sentimentaux, nouilleurs contrariés et parents d’élèves cruels. » (Les Echos 2007 – Série Limitée n° 37 du 10 Juin 2005 • page 15) »Jade » Pierre Juvigny et Magalie Harant  –  4/ Ivan Duval

« Vive la fête des mères ! Le célèbre collier de nouilles semble indissociable de la fête des mères. Pourtant, chaque année, elles sont de moins en moins nombreuses à recevoir avec émotion ces cadeaux fignolés plusieurs jours à l’avance par leurs rejetons. Certaines écoles ont en effet décidé de supprimer cette activité. Le conservatoire des Curiosités, qui avait déjà sévi à Chevilly-Larue avec « la ménagerie mécanique » et « La crèche à moteur » a donc décidé d’aborder ce sujet difficile du collier de nouilles au travers d’une Conphérence singulière. Au programme les responsabilités éducatives des uns et des autres, les limites de la créativité en milieu scolaire, la valeur des preuves d’amour et la célébration de la poésie brute des imaginaires extravagants. » ( novembre 2007 )
