Elisabetta Cipriani – invites renowned international sculptors and painters to create exclusive wearable sculptures with the use of precious materials. These pieces are created exclusively for Elisabetta Cipriani in limited series or as unique pieces.
The creative process for these collaborations begins with persuading Elisabetta’s esteemed artists to create one of a kind jewel. These are challenging projects for the artists who welcome the opportunity to experiment with a new artistic medium and are often approaching the realm of jewelry for the first time. They ideate a design which condensate their artistic poetics and then realize a series of sketches for the making of the prototype. Elisabetta and the artists follow very closely the making process, and once the prototype is approved by all the parts, the artists themselves or specialized goldsmiths based in Europe produce the final piece. The ultimate result is an exceptional jewel that encloses the most intimate expression of the artist.
“Wearing artists’ jewelry enhances the individual and completes these extraordinary and unique pieces. Today artists’ jewelry appeals not only to art lovers and jewelry collectors but also to individuals with a desire to wear something exceptional.”
