Desire for lightness…
A new collection of “Glix Atelier” earrings in silver to start autumn wearing bright and light jewels, suitable for any occasion. Precious and ethereal objects in their simplicity. Each piece is unique and unrepeatable as always and as our philosophy dictates.
September marks the beginning of autumn and literally brings us back down to earth, after the lightheartedness of the long summer days.
Perhaps a certain dose of lightness can be the right medicine for the sense of uncertainty that pervades us upon returning from holidays, that lightness that Calvino meant as the ability to look at things from above, but with precision and determination, the ability to free oneself from weight .
Lightness as an aesthetic quality.
A quality, therefore, which contains both form and substance.
The collection for this start of the season is a small hymn to lightness; a collection of earrings, objects that inevitably have to have a very low weight in order to be worn.
To meet the requirements of lightness, a material such as metal must have certain aesthetic qualities: light is not only something incorporeal, but something that has a synthetic, essential aspect, devoid of redundant elements.
The earrings collection.
It is a collection of earrings, featuring designs of drops, reminiscent of the first autumn rains, and rounded outlines. The individual pieces (except one) are designated by female names with an ancient flavor, in homage to women and their beauty.
The silver, modeled in linear, sober, but refined shapes, curves and winds now like a ribbon, now with curvilinear volumes.
The surfaces are always satin, smooth or perforated, with repeating, symmetrical or random motifs. They are discreet ornaments, never flashy, perfect for any occasion, a precious detail, which adds a touch of light around the face, sometimes enriched by the presence of a small pendant stone.
Reality forces us to give ‘weight’ to things, it imposes rules on us.
Lightness can be a way to get out of the box and can be traced and cultivated in daily gestures, in one’s feelings.
It is found in small and delicate objects to surround yourself with or wear.
I like to think that an ornament is also a kind of good luck charm, a talisman, something to which to attribute a superstitious value that reassures us.
Some symbols give the jewel a magical and propitiatory value.
