The secret of fashion jewellery in 2016 has been revealed at Amberif in an richly documented book. As an original perspective, the author Slawomir Fijalkowski from Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk, proposes us a transposition from emerging architecture styles and indoor decoration to the jewellery field. The Trend Book 2016+ shows five artistic trends, which could influence jewellery, while emphasizing amber from Baltic through creation made by students from the Academy.
The copper is becoming the matrix of amber and indeed, we can notice a very nice match between colours. The Stone Age is reappearing by associating amber with pebbles, flint, marble or granite. The geometry within nature or architecture, textures and art objects are exploited in a new way of jewel creativity. The increasing use of 3D modulation for everyday products is expanding to the conception of innovative jewels easy to reproduce in high quantity. Eventually, the pop culture and its bright colours are coming back on rings, bracelets and necklaces. The jewel is really perceived as an art of living ; beyond our cosy or contemporary indoors, we wear our accessories and expose them as an extension of our way of life.
Emilia Gizowska, Académie des Beaux-Arts de Gdansk, bague en argent et ambre, tendance modélisation 3D.
Aleksandra Kalinowska, Académie des Beaux-Arts de Gdansk, pendentif polyamide et ambre, tendance géométrie.
These trends still show rather shyly on Amberif stands or the opening of the 20 years of the International Association of Amber. Nevertheless, it is possible to observe some specifications.
Returning to the stands Amberif and specifically to our favorites ! In the gallery of the designers, we noticed the remarkable work on the theme of the orchid by Bondarowski. With diamond and amber, the creators combine original materials such as carbon fiber, or more rarely used enamel.
Once again, I will talk about By Jewellery. Having had the opportunity to meet the father and the daughter in their workshop in Warsaw, I have been immersed in their world and understood where their inspiration came from. It was all around them, as the family home which brings together today for their work, is surrounded by forest. Branches, plants, fungi are transcribed in refreshing jewelry.
In front of their stand, that of Dorota Kos presents a world all in delicacy, in poetry, the grounds in arabesque or inspired by nature.
A little further in the show, I met Kacper Schiffers. The creator, jewellery professor at Warsaw and restorer of antique jewelry, combined the art deco patterns to contemporary jewelry.
Finally, a bit of blue and purple in the jewelry Studio Rox. Titanium anodized highlights opal or amber and theirs flowers are impressive.
