"Molto tempo fa, il sale era valutato più dell'oro. Il sale era come un denaro. Ma ora possiamo comprare sale ovunque e molto economico. Ma il sale è ancora un ingrediente molto importante per cucinare. l'idea è iniziata qui. Voglio dare il valore al sale di nuovo. Per questo motivo ho usato il sale come gemma. Quando lo guardi profondamente, sembra una gemma bianca. E mi piace la geometria. Le forme delle mie spille rappresentano un riflettore. La luce si forma molto liberamente a seconda dei fori che attraversa la luce. Quindi ho interpretato la forma secondo la mia tendenza: geometrica e la parte della luce, ho messo il sale."

Collezione SALUX- Sale verniciato, argento ossidato, ottone, acciaio inossidabile


"A long time ago, salt was valued more than gold. Salt was like a money. But now we can buy salt anywhere and very cheap. But the salt is still very important ingredient for cooking. the idea started here. I want a give the value to salt again. For that reason i used salt as a gem. When you look at it deeply, it looks like a whit gem. And i like geometry. The shapes of my brooches represent a spotlight. The light is formed very freely depending on the holes that the light crosses. Therefore i interpreted the form by my tendency-geometric and the part of the light, l put the salt. "

Born in Argentina, Andrea Vaggione started design studies and in 2001, she discovered the world of contemporary jewellery in Córdoba, her home town. In 2005, she moved to Barcelona and worked 5 years at Laura B where she discovered forging techniques. In 2012, she won the “Talents de Mode” contest and set up her workshop in Lyon at the Village des créateurs to develop her business.

Her jewels are the encounter of the craftsman's skills, art and design. This delicate and refined work, infused with botany and plants, focuses on the concepts of permanent transformation, perpetual motion, birth and rebirth.
The uncluttered minimalist jewels with a hint of ingenuity reflect both the strength and fragility of the designer.
Vaggione's work studies the patterns of nature, its proportions and inflorescences. It's a reflection on nature and flowers as a symbol of continuity. The flowers remind us that we can always start again, be reborn, reinvent.
She chose to work silver, combining strength and subtlety, using both traditional techniques (manual) and innovative processes calling on contemporary technologies. The sobriety of this material contrasts with the ephemeral beauty of flowers.

 

"I miei gioielli sono un mezzo di comunicazione - paesaggi utopici come rifugio di un mondo digitale rumoroso, caotico. Creo composizioni di legno, muschio e pietre preziose, che rappresenta la fertilità della terra e la preziosità della natura. I risultati sono luoghi onirici surreali che assomigliano a un mondo parallelo e scatenano un ritiro della vita digitale mentre osservano - un momento di esperienza estetica."

"My jewelry is a medium of communication – utopian landscapes as a retreat of a noisy, chaotic, digital world. I create compositions of wood, moss and gemstones, which represents the fertility of earth and the preciousness of nature. The results are surrealistic dreamy places which resemble a parallel world and spark a retreat of digital life while observing – a moment of aesthetic experience."

"Human life takes place between chaos and order, reality and imagination, fear and faith. This constitutive ambivalence makes life so diverse. But what is chaos and order? What is utopia and what is dystopia? And what about hell and paradise? There is no universal concept for any of these subjects. And that is what characterizes human beings: different perceptions!

My jewelry is a medium of communication – utopian landscapes as a retreat of a noisy, chaotic, digital world. I create compositions of wood, moss and gemstones, which represents the fertility of earth and the preciousness of nature. The results are surrealistic dreamy places which resemble a parallel world and spark a retreat of digital life while observing – a moment of aesthetic experience.

Through the application to the body and the resulting mobility, a journey begins for the piece and the wearer, which consists of carrying feelings into the world, creating space for interpretation, quietly thinking or concretely communicating.
