Description

Silver Filigree Button Necklace is a contemporary piece made of alginate, silver 925 and an antique Slovak silver filigree button, that was used for traditional costumes. I’ve used this handmade antique piece for a contemporary wearable necklace. It is set in alginate, which is painted with flop lacquer in blue-green-violet changing colour. The chain is also unique and handmade of 925 silver.

I’ve made my first works with alginate in the collection Worms: Into the Unknown. Alginate is a material derived from algae. As a purely biological material it is safe and environmentally friendly. It is an exceptional skin safe body molding material. Alginate is suitable for making temporary molds, it absorbs water quickly. After the water evaporates, the shape shrinks and dries out. It is very lightweight. This was the moment where I decided to make jewelry of it. I’ve often changed, further carved, colored, or coated the imprint.

These pieces include cement, pigments or sand. What are these objects? They are mild forms, imprints of shells, skeletons of marine organisms, parts of melted sand grains together. Or the unknown nature which we cannot see. This jewellery shows how I see the real, or even the unreal. There are not real found shells, or coral skeletons, there are only three-dimensional pictures of it. What could be, seems more real than visible things. The game played by real and not real, takes place in jewellery and wearer’s body.

Silver Filigree Button Necklace is easy to wear and a real connection between old and new.
