The new jewels of the artist-designer Suzanne Syz: fantasy, irony and a bit of nostalgia ♦ ︎
A journey through time with the art of a Swiss designer who is truly different from the others. Although his specialty is to propose new techniques and surprising shapes, his journey through time is turned backwards, to the fifties, sixties, eighties. In short, new forms to wink at the recent past, with a little ‘nostalgia.
As in the All Tired Up rings, which have the shape of tires. Almost a provocation if you think that they are the result of a refined jewelry technique.
The rings are made of titanium (but they are also available in gold or golden titanium), a difficult metal to work, which is favored material by Suzanne Syz. The traces of snow between the cracks in the tire are small diamonds. The Arctic Ice ring, in silver and enamel, instead uses ceramic to remember the ice of the North Pole, with a paraiba tourmaline that looks like a small iceberg. Another feature of the designer is the good dose of irony that she uses for her jewelry. An example is the large pair of earrings with the tap-shaped clip: there are not missed hot and cold writing. Also in this case, the idea of the drops of water that come down are paraiba tourmalines, next to small diamonds. Giulia Netrese
