Intro
With the main objective to show the quality and diversity of contemporary jewelry, Tincal lab invited jewelers from around the world for a challenge: the creation of up to 3 pieces with a maximum price of 100 €, inspired by the theme Jewelry and Cinema. More than 40 authors from over 10 countries have accepted - and this is the result!
All art is autobiographical; the pearl is the oyster's autobiography. / Federico Fellini
 
Cinema is one of the arts that probably combines more different kind of artistic expressions: fashion, photography, music, literature...
Either in historical or futuristic movies, born from invented universes or based on true events, jewelry can shine in cinema in various ways, being a single prop or the motto of the whole story.
Like fashion it can be one of the most striking ways to characterize a character, convey the spirit of a time or place, dictate trends – just think of characters like Cleopatra, Anna Karenina, Diana and Grace of Monaco, or even movies with intense environments like “Moulin Rouge” or “The Great Gatsby”.
 
Impossible to dissociate the film “Breakfast at Tiffany's” from the necklace of pearls worn by Audrey Hepburn or diamonds, considered by Marilyn Monroe as a girl´s best friend, of “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes”. Other times it's a piece of jewelry that dictates the course of the plot, as the ring in the trilogy of “Lord of the Rings”, the earring of the painting that inspires “Girl with a Pearl Earring” or the diamond Heart of the Ocean in “Titanic”.
 
Synonym of wealth and status, jewelry may give rise to envy, theft and betrayal.
While symbolic object is able to transmit memories, make commitments, reveal passions.
 
But we don’t want the source of inspiration to be merely formal, all the imagery of a film may itself inspire a jewel: the desert sands of “The English Patient” will surely inspire different jewelry from the surreal fantasy of “Alice in Wonderland” or the black universe of “Batman”.
 
We invite authors to feel inspired by their favorite movie and create jewelry able to carry us to the magical world of cinema!
 

About the Challenge:
With the main objective to show the quality and diversity of contemporary jewelry, opening its doors to the general public, we invite jewelers from different countries and lines of work to integrate an event of exhibition and sale, to be held at Tincal lab (Porto, Portugal), before the end of 2016. The exhibition will be accompanied by the publication of a catalog, presented on the date of opening.

Elizabeth Shaw. Ring: Rings for Mary Shelley, 2016. Silver. These rings were inspired by the 1931 classic movie Frankenstein that was based on a story written by 18-year-old Mary Shelley in 1816. In Frankenstein the parts of various bodies were combined to make a monster. In each of these rings, a part of an engraved sterling silver bangle has been combined with cast sterling silver formed from a range of other items. The joins are intentionally obvious alluding to the unnatural mix following the idea of marrying parts from different origins but of the same materials to make a new whole.. Elizabeth Shaw
