Alba Cappellieri - Brilliant!
Publisher Corraini Edizioni
Idea Code 16303
From prehistory to the twentieth century, jewellery has followed a linear, sequential and deductive path, punctuated by precious materials and social symbolism. The timeline of contemporary jewellery has fragmented into multiple reflections of often divergent values and contexts, sitting precariously between the eternal of precious tradition and the ephemeral of fashion. This present fragmentary nature opens up windows on the futures of jewellery: the fine jewels of Admirable Manufacture, the elegance of Everyday Beauty, the artistic experiments of Avant Craft, the interactive jewellery of Precious Technology and the challenges of 3D printing of Collective Creativity.
