Joanne Burke’s Grand Tour





Jewelery inspired by ancient Rome (but not only) by british designer Joanne Burke ♦

Once upon a time, there was what was called the Grand Tour. Young nobles and intellectuals of Northern Europe from the 18th to the 18th century went to Italy to visit monuments, paintings and frescoes of the Renaissance, to enrich their culture and make an experience. Even today, many people are fascinated by the testimonies that History and culture have left in Italy (as well as the pleasures of food for the truth). Someone, like Joanne Burke, decides to stay in Italy, in Rome. Not only that: the young and extravagant British jewelry designer has also chosen to create collections inspired by antiquity. Its bronze jewelry, sometimes plated with gold, resembles forms and icons used in ancient Rome, from the anthropomorphic sun to the relief figures found on friezes and marble stele. But they are not a mere replica of the past, as is evidenced by the curious jewelry applied on the eyebrows.

Another not common aspect is the choice of models and models wearing her jewels and appearing on her Instagram profile (we have chosen some pictures for example). Or the little not orthodox instruments she uses to make her pieces (it looks like tools for dentists). She began almost by chance, realizing rings for herself: with strange shapes of penis, eyes, a hermaphrodite. They asked to her to buy them and so she went on. And so, her Grand Tour was good: her work debuted at London Fashion Week. Lavinia Andorno
