Following in the footsteps of the “Pulcinella Necklet”, this collection of gold, silver and pearls jewels is characterised by a strong element of quirky narrative and entertaining nature.
Universally associated with Italian tradition & flavour, Commedia dell’Arte (or Italian Comedy) is the inspiration behind my piece, Pulcinella Necklet. Elegant design & fantastic narrative come together here in a contemporary twist on the old world-renowned Italian tradition.
The fanciful collection of pendants and necklets, by the ambiguous forms and opulent tones is a clear display of a fusion of my interest in the mythological with my most intimate mindscapes, and it is to be understood in the tradition of ornamental Grotesque.
Drawing from a visual cauldron of Medieval Bestiaries and grotesque mythological figures, familiar anthropomorphic shapes are turned into ambiguous, at times disturbing new ones in this sculptural ring trio.
