Sterling Silver and Lapis Lazuli
Eyes staring at the movements of the cardinal points, fed from ancient silversmith art and timeless charms, as much as from feminist science-fictions, all the roads led me to this goddess exploration. The aspect blurs the eventual origin to whisper dateless forms and subjects that survive us. It does not matter if these stories are not existing yet, it is wearing these jewels that will make them happen.
Drawing my inspiration from literature and mythology, I use symbols and metaphors to evoke strength, courage, protection, mystery. Conical and domed volumes, designed as temples, shelters, containers, nurturing breast as symbolic triangles and circles. Mirror finish that refects what does not lie. Jewelry worn as talismans to go on with this nomadic life with the serene certitude of not knowing what tomorrow will be made of.
May wearing those jewels make you proud as if you have just been tattooed, facing the horizon with an everlasting light narrowing your eyes.
The work presented to you grew out of sterling silver and rough lapis lazuli stone.
