Avui he descobert el projecte d’aquesta joiera de Providence i he quedat impressionada, no tinc paraules per descriure les seves peces. A més té un video on es veu ella posant-se cada una de les peces, genial!

Today I discovered this jewelery project of this artist from Providence and I was impressed, I have no words to describe her pieces. She also has a video wearing every piece, amazing!

“The body is a constant vehicle of art; it bleeds, sweats, and oozes creative force. My pieces are an attempt to capture and articulate the human form and its many traits and emotions. For this purpose I have found myself most drawn to the head, because of its close proximity to the senses. In order for my jewelry to serve as a window or rather a frame to the body’s creative manifestations I find that I must further delineate and even heighten the relationship of jewelry and of the body; making my jewelry as dependent on the human form as possible. The more site specific my jewelry is, the more the role and significance of the human body is amplified, thus exceeding ornamentation.”

La Nina Dinoff ens explica que ha creat un projecte “Ring a Day” en  qual un grup de joiers de tot el món es proposen fer i publicar a l‘espai flickr del grup un anell per dia. M’encanta la idea i des de 18kt els hi volem donar tot el nostre suport! Fantàstic!

Nina Dinoff tell us that she started a challenge called “Ring a Day” with a bunch of other metal artists and others to do a ring a day for the entire year of 2010. They’re published at the flickr group every day. I love the project and from 18Kt we want to give them our full support! Amazing!

Garbage Pin Project by Ana Cardim

“Garbage Pin Project started in January 2008 as a virtual process through the communication established, mainly by email, with the 90 artists that have participated. All of them were sent the Garbage Pin kit with which a common proposal could be carried out.
The proposal consisted in suggesting to them to use the jewel during five days and to select, create or recreate, the contents kept in five plastic bags according to the perspective and reflections generated from the project: worth VS waste’ in the current urban society.
In August 2008 each artist returned its concluding proposal, gathering this way a considerable corpus of rubbish bags.”

No us perdeu les diverses exposicions que anirà fent l’Ana Cardim del projecte “Garbage Pin”, hi han partcipat artistes de tot el món i les peces són increïbles. Una vegada més em trec el barret davant de la seva feina. La meva enhorabona!!
