The strength of textile, jewelry

The strength of textile, jewelry is een rondreizende expositie van sieraden gemaakt met (elementen van) textiel of gemaakt door middel van textiele technieken in andere materialen. De 24 deelnemers zijn afkomstig van Argentinië tot Zuid-Korea. Ik voel me vereerd dat curator Luis Acosta enkele van mijn sieraden heeft geselecteerd uit de textielcollecties Grace en Amulets.

"The strength of textil, jewelry" is a collection of Contemporary International Jewelry in which 24 designers participate.

This exhibition is not about the textile jewelry itself, but about something that suggests it, regardless of the material and technique used. It is the ambiguous concept of the textile jewelry where the quality of the textile materials is contrasted with the hardness and coldness of the metal. The experience of each designer leads him (sometimes unconsciously) to produce an object that is later cataloged into a discipline he had not taken into account. It is interesting to see, within that experimentation, the application of these materials that are transformed into delicate pieces delivering a unique aesthetic to each design. All the magic of a transformation, coupled with mastery in the design of jewelry, to deliver a mysterious message of love.
