Nature by Stella - Malta Playing Arts

Nature by Stella

s’ Perfect 10 was reserved for the oldest art form: jewellery, “square-cut or pear-shaped, these rocks don’t lose their shape, diamonds are a girl’s best friend” (1949) most famously performed by Marilyn Monroe (1953). Instead of semi-/precious stones, the approach here is to collect flowers and leaves which are then fossilized in liquid glass thus turning nature into wearable art. Threaded into and held together by a chain are 10 jewellery items of brooches, ear-/rings, a necklace and bracelet (gold, various floral materials and seashell, 49x24cm).
