Silver: the element of change

The Silver Institute released a new video. The video covers numerous facets of one of the most widely-used and indispensable precious metals: silver. The video explores silver’s role in history and how it changed the course of countless lives in times of the Greek and Roman Empires, when it was used to prevent infection.

Very interesting video!!

Art Jewels by Suzanne Syz at Assouline

Great post!!!!

the CITIZENS of FASHION

A unique universe, at the borders of dreams and reality, to discover in this beautiful book, published by Assouline.

“I started to create my own jewelry because I could never find what I wanted.” By writing these words in the preface of the book, Suzanne Syz delivers all the keys of her creative process. At the beginning of this beautiful jewelry history is therefore … frustration. For this Swiss creative expatriate in New York in the early ’80s,  jewelry were much too serious. Suzanne Syz immersed herself in the New York bustle of the time, feeding her creativity with the energy of Basquiat, Andy Warhol and Julian Schnabel.  To express her dreams, fears and desires, Suzanne Syz chooses colored stones and unconventional materials that were closer to her ideas. The result? A rich collection to the delight of a customers looking for a new freshness, like Princess Gloria von Thurn und Taxis…
