I'm glad to be a part of this project.
Gioielli in Fermento – Fermentation in jewelry – is an international contemporary jewelry competition, which is running since 2011 in historical venues of Italian Val Tidone, like Villa Braghieri Albesani, in Castel San Giovanni, Piacenza (Italy). The source of this project’s inspiration has its roots in the wine making culture. As a metaphor for the fermentation process in wine, when a healthy, alive element of nature – the grapes – turn into a different form – wine, with a different taste, character and value. Constructing similar thinking about the process of creating contemporary jewelry – turning various materials into a special design, form and concept – jewelry.
The result is a great wine and an admirable piece of jewelry.
