Suzanne Syz’s latest jewelery, among unusual materials, pop and a stunning design ♦ ︎
Born in Zurich, who grew up in Paris, she moved to New York in the 1980s and attended Andy Warhol, Jean Michel Basquiat, Julian Schnabel, Francesco Clemente and Jeff Koons. Does anyone wonder why Suzanne Syz describes his business as Art Jewelry? It is, of course, part of his destiny, his attitude, his abilities. The jewels she shows attest this description. The last ones were shown at the Hotel Bergues in Geneva at the end of July. And, as always, they have surprised even by those who know Suzanne Syz very well.
Jewelery could be placed in three different typologies: those of unusual geometries that somehow seem to allude to endless volumes like Möbius’s Ribbon, exuberant luxury jewels, such as the enamel ring, tourmaline and diamonds, and those of Pop inspiration. This is the case, for example, of the fun straw-like earrings made of diamonds and sapphires. Also for these jewels Suzanne Syz often uses non-traditional materials such as aluminum or titanium. Next stage: Salon Art + Design NYC from 9 to 13 November. Margherita Donato
