La Pente (The Slope) brooch

Piece created for Challenge 2022 Jewelry and Literature

Materials vegetable tanned cow leather, sheepskin, alphabet pasta, steel

For this challenge, Flore Soria approached the theme of literature through its medium: the book. Inspired by French leather mosaic book covers from the Art Deco period, she invented titles of imaginary books and created the cover that goes with them, with leather assemblies.

The embossed letters are made with alphabet pasta that is usually cooked for children. She found this material terribly small and painful and will never work with it again!
