Precious ornamental work
How is a Glix jewel born? What cultural symbols and suggestions are the inspiration for these refined ornaments? A Glix jewel is born, above all, as a precious object. An object that embodies an additional quality of value, given by shape, technique, craftsmanship, but also cultural and symbolic contents.
Precious objects and memory
Every piece is a memory, a set of lines and points, whose interlacing lines thread the designs of the jeweler and the person who wears it.
My story begins in the Mediterranean, from the lands steeped in Greek and Byzantine culture, to the mysterious and fascinating Near East.
Traces of these lands influence the precious and complex ornamental lines of the collection. The themes and approaches are different. From architecture and ornamental motifs to nature, are referenced throughout the collection.
Organic forms, flowers and plants, aquatic creatures, small arabesques often recur.
The collection is steeped in Mediterranean culture and its myths. The spontaneous beauty of nature and the sea, the harmony and balance of forms lead back to archetypes that are part of a collective memory, which have come down to us from antiquity and which are part of an imaginary linked to a particular female model of style and elegance.
Through the ornament, a woman pays tribute to her charm by wearing rings, earrings, precious objects that enhance a part of the body, drawing the eye to a detail or a gesture, which becomes seduction.
The lunar collection
Silver is a precious metal linked to the Moon and to femininity. The satin effect of the collections gives the silver a slight opacity, making it whiter and more luminous, accentuating the contrast between the openwork design and it’s full shape.
This is a sophisticated and feminine collection, characterized by a contemporary design that finds expression in soft and elegant shapes.
These jewels are perfect accessories for any occasion. Light and delicate, the wearer draws attention to detail, to its uniqueness, harmony and beauty of the shapes.
The collection’s rings, earrings, pendants are what completes a dress and a statement. They highlight a particular aspect of the person who wears them. They are objects with which the body enters into a playful relationship.
This corresponds to the idea of a jewel as a game, according to the Latin etymology – ‘jewel’ comes from ‘iocus’, ‘game’ – that is, the expression of a will with no motivation other than pure pleasure, in this aesthetic case.
“Elegance is that quality of behavior that transforms the highest quality of being into appearing.”
