Jewellery artist Ewa Sliwinska
has a creative eye fixedly focused on
future ideas and interpretations
Her MA degree project
at the University of Fine Arts, Poznan (Poland),
is a jewellery collection entitled:
The Living Points Structure
Ms. Sliwinska designed pieces,
with an ultra-modern perspective.
More total body adornments than traditional jewellery,
the objects are created with a vision for
simultaneous wear on several body parts.
Her inspiration arose from contemplation on
the manner and attitude of how people might
wear jewellery in future: a century from present.
Hence, the idea of pieces, which are not limited to
a singular body part: finger, wrist, ear, ankle, etc –
but are of a body inter-connective quality.
The pieces are made from elasticated PVC strips,
“translucent tendrils” extending from the body,
moving in concert with the wearer.
As Ms. Sliwinska eloquently states:
“By wearing the designed objects one does not simply decorate the body, but rather extend it both in the context of multidimensional shape and activity – the movement is given a new visual representation
The concept and finished pieces intrigue:
this notion of jewellery as elaborate objects
of body continuation in form and motion.
With this impression jewellery is organic,
maybe not from materials used in construction,
but as more intricate and intimate to the wearer.
