Pilar Viedma Gil de Vergara Spain
Blank Page brooch
Piece created for Challenge 2022 Jewelry and Literature
Materials copper mesh, acrylic paint, oxidized silver, steel
A blank page is an eternal canvas where you can unleash creativity, where you can paint every letter and verse you can imagine and tell everyone that the muse has come.
It’s time to create a jewel in black and white and in colored inks. Take the pen and write on those blank pages and you will see how easy it is to fill the brooch with verses as they were messages travelling pinned on the lapel, like they were in a bottle thrown into the sea so that whoever picks it up can read them.
(The copper mesh is flexible, so be careful not to put weight on it because it can deform, but in that case don't worry: it can return to its original shape simply using with your fingers.)
