Time Capsule brooch
Piece created for Challenge 2021 Jewelry and Nature
Materials enamel, copper, patinated brass
What is not seen exists?
The “Capsules of Time” collection consists of a series of brooches that contain various elements. Elements that talk about nature, time, material and passion.
The brooches are the capsules, but they themselves also are a reflection of nature.
Made in enamel on copper, they show the silhouettes of the structure of Lime Tree leaves.
The structure of this leaf is a very delicate, residual frame, where remains of the pulp it contained can be seen, reminding us of the fragility of nature.
