Nico Delaide Belgium
The Bridge brooch
Piece created for Challenge 2022 Jewelry and Literature
Materials lacquered silver, yellow rhodium
“Le Petit Prince” by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, "The Bridge” by Ian Banks and “The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein, inspired Nico Delaide in making three jewels. What a coincidence, knowing that he chose "Literature" as theme, "Le Rouge et Le Noir" by Stendhal, to celebrate his 40 years being an independent goldsmith, jewelry creator and writer of short stories and poetry! His "everyday" jewelry can be seen on www.nicodelaide.be while his more conceptual work, short stories and poetry found shelter on www.fictualart.com.
