Materials, Design & Function

09.09.2011 § 1 Comment

An artist jeweler based in Chicago named Gillion Carrara I recently discovered, creates the most amazing pieces. I really appreciate when jewelers think of their work as a whole. The problem with art jewelry is that if it becomes too conceptual it often will be unwearable. Carrara tells us “My work explores the relationship between materials, design and function.” Isn’t that exactly what jewelry is all about?
