The Metafore by Giulia Barela





Giulia Barela’s Metafore collection inspired by the great twentieth century sculptors ♦ ︎

The metaphor is a rhetorical figure that implies a shift in meaning. Calm, it’s a very simple concept. For example, we can say that among a thousand collections of jewelry we choose one. But the word thousand is not to be understood in a literal sense. We do not have a thousand collections in front of our eyes. When we say a thousand we mean, simply, that the collections are very many. We use a metaphor, in fact.

Just like the new collection of Giulia Barela, which is called Metafore.

Why is it called Metafore? Because the jewels are inspired by the sculpture of the first half of the twentieth century by artists such as Brancusi, Arp, Moore and Hepworth. The collection consists of ten models including rings, bracelets, necklaces and modular earrings. The whole “refers to a primordial alphabet made of universal geometries”. Even more philosophically, “the morphologies, although apparently abstract, are linked to the relationship between man and nature and man and society, revealing the most intimate aspects”. In short, we are on the edge of intellectual speculation. The jewels are made of gold bronze 24carat gold and silver, with smooth surfaces, polished, and large volumes emptied inside. In a literal sense, it is not a metaphor. Lavinia Andorno
