These weeks are literally flying...
I'm working on orders, new ideas and some 'secret project' I cannot reveal, yet...
But it's finally time to share with you one of the biggest news!!!!
Back in June I've been contacted and invited by ARTISTAR JEWELS to participate to their event!! I was (and am) thrilled by the idea and I think it will be a great opportunity for Aglaia Jewelry!
Let me better explain what this is about, with their words...
"Artistar Jewels, reference organization for all the international artists and designer of the contemporary jewellery, selected the new protagonists of the unmissable event Artistar Jewels 2018, sponsored by Comune di Milano. The initiative, full of news, will take place during the Milan Fashion Week from February 22nd to February 25th 2018, at Palazzo dei Giureconsulti, nearby the Dome Cathedral in Milan."
TWO of my pieces -but I can't tell you which ones- have been selected and they are already in Milan, Italy! (drinking an espresso at the cafe, probably.... ah, la dolce vita.)
(Actually, we should throw down a challenge: "which pieces have been chosen?" What do you think?)
But there is more! The pieces, prior to the exhibition, are going to be professionally photographed and a book will be published.
The book will be distributed in Italian bookstores (like Feltrinelli and Mondadori) and in the major European capitals.
(This is the last year edition,just to give you an idea)
After the event in February, Artistar Jewels will cross the Italian borders.
A touring exhibition of 30 pieces, selected by the jury of the contest, will touch important European locations, as the gallery ICKX Contemporary Jewelry of Brussels, known for the variety of the pieces with singular design, sober to minimalist, in which every piece is unique or realized in small series.
But the 2018 contest involves many other awards like:
-the chance to attend the professional Goldsmithing course at Scuola Orafa Ambrosiana of Milan.
-to be selected to participate to two of the main European Jewelry Fairs
(Sieraad Art Fair, Amsterdam and AUTOR International Contemporary Jewelry Fair, Bucharest)
The pieces will also be on sale, for the entire year, on the Artistar Jewels website.
More news will be revealed in the next months so...let's stay in touch!
