Artemisia by Emanuela Bergonzoni
Emanuela Bergonzoni | Present-day ecological Jewels
"Metal has always captured my imagination: I am thrilled by the
infinite possibilities of expression that it offers. Polished,
pressed, laminated, soldered, cut, cast, bent, burnished, rusted,
etched... metal has always been worked by the hand of man,
serving as landmarks along his evolutionary path.
[...] I am amazed and astonished at how, at my will, my own
hands can forge and transform an amorphous mass of metal
into a beautiful ornament, harmonious and useful. [...] Working
the metal with my hands, without relying on industrial techniques:
this is what gives me the feeling, the knowledge, that I am
part of this history, part of the wave of
transformation". With these words Italian sculptress and
designer Emanuela Bergonzoni, describes her ecological metal jewels.
The Day After Collection is dedicated to those who appreciate
the beauty of simple yet strong shapes. A collection of
entirely handmade jewellery, each piece rigorously unique and
originally designed, bursting with vitality and harmony thanks to the
care with which they are conceived and crafted: the result of years
ofaesthetic and creative research, the fruit of a technique for creating
contemporary jewellery in tune with respect for the environment.
"The basic idea running through my work is to treat the metal as
if it were cloth: I translate this idea into crafting techniques that
express this intention. Over the last few years, I have concentrated
my research onenvironmentally sound techniques. For the Day
After Collection, I have made use of a complex hand-pressing
technique which renders the sheet of silver amazingly soft and supple".
