Avui he descobert la feina de l’Anna, una dissenyadora afincada a Seattle, que fa unes peces molt delicades, m’agrada la combinació de les textures i les pedres que fa.

Today I discovered Anna’s works, a Seattle based designer that makes very delicate pieces, I really like the combination she makes of stones and textures.

M’encanten les peces de resina d’aquesta artista polonesa. Depenent de les col·leccions utilitza divereses fotos per crear peces úniques o directament fulles i flors naturals. Genial!

I love the resin pieces of this polish artist. She uses photos of diferent things depending on the collection and she also uses natural leaves or flowers inside the resin. Amazing!

Ja fa uns anys que vaig publicar les peces d’aquesta joiera al bloc, però aprofito que vaig poder-la saludar a Inhorgenta per tornar-la a publicar. Les seves peces són simples, contruccions de fulles de plata i or amb algunes pedres. La trobareu també al Twitter i el Facebook. M’encanta!

A few years ago I posted about this jeweler, but I meet her at Inhorgenta and I thought I will be nice to talk another time about her works. Her pieces ar simple, she builts jewels using small metal leaves and some gemstones. You can find her also at Twitter and Facebook. I love it!

Impressionant les joies d’aquesta artista americana…formes orgàniques de fulles, plantes i altres elements de la naturalesa. La seva peça estrella és la “Tiara” que ella mateixa ens decriu com al corona de la sabiduria. Us deixo el seu propi escrit, és molt bó!!

“The Tiara of Useful Knowledge focuses on the Importance of plants. It is inspired by The American Philosophical Society’s charter [1743] “for Promoting Useful Knowledge,” and The Academy of Natural Science’s [1812] goal of “connecting people to nature.” It consists of portraits of 10 plants, an ant, and a pebble, made from oxidized sterling silver, 18K and 14K gold, and quartz. The Tiara transforms into 12 pieces of jewelry that can each be worn separately.

Tiaras are rooted in the ancient Greek practice of placing laurels upon the heads of victors, and grew into an icon of British royalty. My American version is modeled after plants in the vacant lots near my studio and home. I just assumed they were unique to the USA until I read about Invasive Species and Aliens replacing Natives. Many Natives are now described as Rare, Threatened, Endangered, Vulnerable, Extinct or – Extirpated, while others are labeled Nuisance, Noxious, or – Worst!”
