Arts Thread: Israeli Gallery Showcases Hearts And Flowers In Modern Jewelry
Drawing on romantic and floral motifs throughout history, seven graduate jewelry makers in Tel Aviv exhibit their contemporary interpretations.
Floral and heart motifs are omnipresent in jewelry design. From the Neoclassical jewelry of the late 1700s through to the Art Nouveau movement straight up to modern day accessories, the romantic connotations of these motifs have proven to be a timeless source of inspiration for both the designer and the wearer. For ‘Freshly Cut’ at Gallery Complete, Tel Aviv, seven jewelry makers have explored the aesthetic possibilities of these themes and produced their own contemporary interpretations.
