"The fundamental principles of my work are colors, movement and contrast. Using the kaleidoscope as a metaphor, I combine traditional materials with innovative, often forgotten or unusual for jewellery. I am the absolute precursor of the incorporation of horsehair in the Chilean contemporary jewellery.
My dynamism and personal curiosity, is transferred to my collections, thematic series with its own history, all prolific and generous. This perpetual motion gives as results suggestive jewels that are read between the lines and conducts always to a personal interpretation of the wearer and the onlooker, transforming reality into a personal paradise.
About the particular collection I am showing at Myday-Byday gallery in Rome:
This story is about me, my body, my soul and my essence. Just like it, is scattered, a bit chaotic and without a thread. Starting with a skein of wire, I untangled it and tangled it up again obsessively. I merged and fused zones. I laminated and forged these weaves, taking the material to the limit between being and non-being, seeking the balance between building up and destroying, showing that permanence and control are illusions and fragility is tangible; we are changeable and perishable. I did not plan the result; I only weaved for a long time, an act that unconsciously led me to feel and reflect without the urgency of the assignment. Here I present the biography of my soul, my “Animagraphy” narrated at my fifty two."

After his studies at the Technical School of of Silversmithing and Goldsmithing Techniques in Athens Greece, Konstantinos worked for years in various jewelry workshops. It took him a long time for the next step, his own workshop. Driven by his passion for jewelry, Konstantinos is experimenting mainly with metal. But what if a traditional metalsmith “abandones” metal and starts working with other materials? Is this transition easy and does he/she need to use different tools and machinery? Following his love for jewelry, Konstantinos is constantly trying to prove that there must not be “limits and labels” on creators. Devoted to his principles of simplicity and minimalism, his designs are statements of what “jewelry-creation” means to him: symbols of personal meaning.

We often let ourselves swept away by sounds of music, singing or dancing. And very often, we discover that inspiration is closer than we think. And in this case it was Bolero, a one-movement orchestral piece by the French composer Maurice Ravel, that triggered me to compose a one-movement pieces that follow the rhythm, the pianissimo and fortissimo of the melody, the emergence and the dive of each musical instrument, until the end, where all instruments come together for the final accompaniment. A real depiction of human emotions, with ups and downs and at the very end, the revelation.
"In my work I embrace both traditional as well as modern techniques and find great inspiration in their ensuing dialogues, love transforming simple objects into art and the surprise caused by the unexpected, charge objects and surfaces with human personalities and traits, generate new materials with a child's curiosity, weighed down by time melancholy. The outcome is contradictory, personal and political, a cry for freedom.
I don't always see limits between different disciplines as I restlessly experiment on new art practices, try to push the limits of how jewelry is still produced and perceived as an "object" and how it is connected to a limited understanding of beauty."

"Jewelry has always been important for me, my mother is a jewelry designer as well. Because of this I started to make rings and wearable pieces you can wear, at a very young age. Since then I have never stopped.
I studied jewelry design in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I live in the mountains and the forest. I have always had a strong connection with nature. This also comes from our culture, here it is very important to have a strong connection with her. So she is my main inspiration for creating my jewelry.
My pieces are very organic. I want to represent the shapes, the movement and the texture of flower petals, trees, branches in a very raw, delicate and abstract form."

Agostina Laurenzano received a Fashion Designer degree from the University of Buenos Aires. While studying one of the subjects, she got in touch with the contemporary jewelry world and this led her into her true passion and vocation in 2014. Her bold designs are groundbreaking as she creates one-of-a-kind jewels experimenting with diverse natural materials. This is her premise. Once a new natural element draws her attention, it awakens her imagination and she turns it into a functional piece of jewelry and art.
She is committed to the awareness of the environment and claims the craft world production to avoid the rampant consumption and the abuse of the natural resources. Her earrings, necklaces, bracelets, rings and brooches are fine and unique art pieces which are unrepeatable as their own origin is. She can´t imitate a piece as they are made from nature. “A leaf is never identical to another”

"Golden Goose collection represent some of my work utilizing 3D printing techniques.
Many jewelry designers use 3D printing to their advantage, it simplifies the design process and enables them to create intricate designs in less time compared to traditional silversmithing techniques. In my work, instead of using the new technology to create traditional work, I am pushing the boundaries of Jewelry design and creating new kind of jewelry. I am exploring the world of toys and motion and using this new technology to design and create one of a kind [or very limited editions] and interactive jewelry that is meant to be adorned and played with.
In the Golden Goose collection as well, I attempt to create a new type of design – one that plays with the dichotomies of metal and plastic, black and gold, printed and handmade – a series of combinations that lend themselves both to the sophistication and to the playfulness of the pieces."

Natalia Tapety is a Brazilian architect and designer, currently expanding her jewelry brand in Chile and living in both countries. While attending university, she took courses of parametric modeling and digital fabrication around the world. The fascination for technology employed in architecture generated the will to implement it in an area that it still unusual.
Over time, the manual making began to have fundamental importance in the process of work and creation. The architect was dedicated to study goldsmithing and to implant this new knowledge in the development of pieces. Today her work as a jeweler is defined by the mixture of her background as a curious architect, anxious to try new materials and mix production techniques. His greatest inspirations are the arts, especially the plastic arts.
"My work brings architecture and jewelry together, with unusual and creative designs that have to stand out by themselves, like a piece of art does. And just like a piece of art, the intention of my work involves concept and history in such a way that the accessory is deeply connected with your own story. I do my best to simplify the process of jewelry making and therefore, choose accessible materials, so the pieces can be acquired by everyone. In this way, it is also possible to value the idea, creation and design of the piece besides the added value or the nobility of the material. The combination of digital fabrication and handmade fabrication also brings out a more fresh and contemporary jewelry design. I love both technology and handmade work and that's is also part of my architecture background. Ours clients love to wear a meaningful accessory that they can connect with, I hope you like it too and I will be happy to tell you all about your favorite LAMA’s piece."

"My aim is to harness materials in such a way that they flow and take shape without abandoning functionality; and to create pieces that stand out and define themselves. I want to strike a balance between usefulness and beauty, and to respect materials and their qualities. I also want to highlight what is beautiful and ugly, good and bad, and capture that in an useable object, which must be timeless. The idea is to attain the freedom that lets the creative process flow until it loses control of itself, making things with my hands, starting from nothing. Journeys, stories, memories and emotions are the subject of my work."
