Intro
Emotive jewels are indelible works of daring, distinct beauty. Patina Gallery’s Allison Barnett reveals a new, curated collection by esteemed British artist, Daphne Krinos. Inspired by London’s urban landscape before her, Krinos evolves visions of skyscrapers, fences, and scaffoldings into wearable works of art.
Graphic lines in oxidized silver and high karat gold are paired with an array of translucent gems. To Allison's delight, emotive jewelry unfolds as she utilizes shape and space to communicate an opulent collage of geometric glamor and intrigue for the body.

Across Allison’s curation, an oeuvre of earrings and necklaces accentuate the artist’s desire to empower the wearer with daring, distinct beauty. Near crystal clear aquamarine, ocean tides of chrysocolla, and sparkling rock crystal delight in an endless, effulgent glow. Evocative colors and contrasts reside pleasantly as metal and gemstones unite. Sterling silver discs are set in elegant abundance against bright yellow gold.

With skillful ease, Krinos composes an exquisite assemblage of works that remain a comforting fit while a splendid composition in structure and form. Bold, architectural designs arise through intricate and wonderfully audacious jewels as the artist creates dynamic and indelible works to continuously stir the soul.

I have always been attracted by manmade structures and industrial sites. I have been living in London for over 30 years and my studio is at home in East London, a very lively area, where many artists work. I am near the City of London, which is rapidly expanding. I take many photos of building sites, and these images tend to crop up in much of my work. [...] I have been known to design jewelry, beginning with stones, as my design brief… A stone of a particular color or shape can often become that starting point.
