Naama Bergman's exhibition "Dissolved Revolved " she created jewellery and containers that were not wearable nor had a purpose. I can understand why she intended her jewellery to be more of "an emotional piece" or a "memory piece" as opposed to wearing because firstly, if someone wore it, it would not last as long due to it's natural salt structure which would most likely disintegrate over time. Furthermore, if it did not look like a necklace it would perhaps not have the same appeal therefore I can understand why it is not wearable. However, personally I would like to produce wearable pieces using alternative materials and metal that adorns the body. Nika Danielska produces quite gothic and dramatic pieces that have a skeletal form which I absolutely love!
During this project I began to realise which direction I see myself taking to persue a career in Jewellery and Metal design. I enjoy creating 'wearable art' which often tends to be made using alternative materials and make a statement. Gothic styles intrigue me but I always try to make my work look elegant. I began to experiment with salt and attempted to produce salt crystals by producing a high concentrated salt solution and putting materials in it. Read on to my next post to find out how I got on! ..
