Artistar Jewels 2019 collects the contemporary jewellery’s beauty in 500 ironic wearable sculptures, sometimes nearly not wearable. Artistar Jewels offers, every year, an unprecedented reading on contemporary jewellery proposing the trends of recent years. The approach is original because the selection is not carried out starting from a topic chosen by the editors. Maximum is thus the freedom of expression to offer visitors a real insight into contemporary production in the field of body ornaments. Several are the techniques used – from lost wax, laser cutting, filigree, hand finishing, to 3D printing, which is increasingly used in this sector. The animal world with its thousand nuances, the exploration of the human body, the criticism of the social networks universe are among the most interesting themes. Gold, silver, titanium, leather, fabric, polymers, diamonds, quartzes, even meteorites, lichens and nanosital are among the materials chosen with strong, unpublished and refined combinations. In the volume you can admire the creations of three protagonists of the art and contemporary jewellery worlds, whose works are internationally recognized: Turi Simeti, one of the most appreciated and quoted contemporary Italian artists and known for his 1960s outbursts; the German Ute Decker, sculpture jewellery author who works in London and has among her clients Zaha Hadid; she uses for her creations 100% recycled gold and silver, with Fairtrade certification and she is one of the first supporters of ethical jewellery. Finally, geometric jewels will be present from the impressive structures of the French artist and designer Christophe Burger.
