Devil In The Details? What Does Your Jewelry Say About You?
The devil is always in the details. Personal style is revealed most intimately in accessories, specifically jewelry and secondly shoes. For now, think about your jewelry and what it says about you? You can send powerful subconscious messages with jewelry intentionally or not. Some jewelry designers combine iconic, disturbing and beautiful things into wearable art. Wearing jewelry, from the three designers here, invites interaction and will not lead to a boring evening.
The graphic Extraviolet dog tags above are tiny collages hand-cut and sealed by the designer, Violet Caren. Each dog tag a unique combination of painstakingly individually cut diverse materials, patters, textures, and images on each side. The bright colors in the Extraviolet dog tags innocently catch the eye; a closer look is somehow disturbing. Sweet and sinister perfectly matched.
King of Pop Brooch by Delfina Delettrez in Marble
If Delfina Delettrez were not designing jewelry she might be creating Robot Chicken-eques characters in stop motion animation. Her detailed designs come alive betwixt and between wildflower autopsies. Like an spoken sweetly insult , Delfina's transgressive King of Pop Brooch might slip first glance, but when your eyes meet the macabre image brands on the subconscious indefinitely. Try not to dream about this bone-chilling pop star tonight.
Calourette Horse Ring
French designer Marianne Rautureau sculpts images from her dreams into her jewelry line, Calourette. Maybe headless horses and blood soaked sheets fill Marianne's dreams. The deep crimson color and studly steed (body elsewhere) recall "The Godfather" severed horse head scene. In the infamous scene, the beloved racehorse, Khartoum, is beheaded and his head is place in his sleeping owners bed as a warning from the Mob. A real decapitated horse head was used in the scene. Animal rights groups protested the horrifying scene. Coppola later stated that the horse's head was delivered to him from a dog food company and was not killed specifically for the movie. Seriously? This scene is more shocking today as it was then. Wear the Calourette Horse Ring as a pinky ring and your handshake becomes the ultimate warning.
