When you want to get to know someone, you can find out a lot from their own way of introducing themselves. However, sometimes a third person may phrase things differently, and give you some more information to complete the picture. For today's post I'm excited to share with you some of my recent mentions in various publications.
Cages, geometric distortions and polyhedral interplays. The Israeli designer Hella Ganor manages to bring together classic style, sculptural ability and 3D elements to create fluctuating' jewels with an avant-garde allure Jewels in abstract shapes that bring to mind the geometric motifs seen on computer desktops back in the 1990s. Those interconnected lines in fluorescent shades that move in a continuous fluid dance to create ever-different three- dimensional shapes that hypnotize. These rings, bracelets and pendants feature a classic allure and sculptural quality that pairs well with the avant-garde spirit of contemporary technology. And let's not forget what for Hella is a jewel, Aos ultimate objective: to glorify and celebrate the power hidden inside the body of every woman.
Small works of art that are the fruits of a unique three- dimensional technology that is famous with the latest generation architects. This talented Israeli designer actually wanted to become an architect but her family and fate took her in another direction. After five years of study at the Basis School in Hadassa Neurim, Israel, and a lot of practice making handmade jewels, Hella began working on her own style in earnest. Her objective was to create jewels that are artistic but that are at the same time sensual and easy to wear. computer printing, the puzzle is finally now complete and the magic of this new technology has allowed Hella to arrive where hands alone can' t go.
In her Netline collection, the jewels seem to continue to move, to dance. These are three-dimensional rings and pendants with curving, airy silhouettes. 'Hollow' jewels that make extraordinary use of inner spaces, coalescing into pieces that feature soft, fluctuating geometric shapes. Cages, round prisons of light and mesh in 18-carat gold, studded with diamonds, green opals, lapis lazuli and white agate.
The intrinsic value of these precious masterpieces can be found in their design. Shapes that take inspiration from nature, from the outlines of post-modern bridges and the geometric aesthetic of artists like M.C. Escher and Richard Serra.
Contemporary pieces able to satisfy a lady as well as a mathematician or physicist who would appreciate this artistic use of polyhedrons, geometric distortions and concepts that have always been a part of science.
