The rhythm hidden in a necklace  

 

Elisabetta Duprè in her work applies not only the skills she has acquired in Rome and Munich schools of jewellery, but she also makes use of her musical education. Her creation is described as an attempt of entangling the rhythm within tiny pieces of art.

 

 

Her subtle necklaces evoke associations with the ticking of a clock or the swinging of a metronome. The authoress crafts her pieces engaging dozens, even hundreds of tiny pieces of silver and gold, small cubes, cups, flat bars, in doing so she enhances the sense of the rhythm, the repetition, but also the illusion of movement. Read more about exhibition (click here).

 


 

Over 1500 pieces of avant-garde jewellery in Legnica!

Tiny, huge, classic, modern, eliciting wonder or admiration, wearable or thoroughly artistic – these are the features of the opera of the art of jewellery exhibited and hosted by Legnica Jewellery Festival 2015. We have gathered over a thousand and half of these.

Their authors originate from a few dozen countries. We will see them exhibited in as many as nine places in the heart of the city. Some of these works bring associations with the traditional methods of design, linked with jewellery, whereas the others refer to the freshest worldwide trends, surprising with the approach to both the material and the form. Well, jewellery has many a name, and you will realise that in the best way if you visit our exhibitions in person. Feel invited!
