Intro
The criterion I have chosen to adopt for the selection of works to be incorporated into the Cominelli Foundation Collection, has been that of analyzing those elements that in the course of centuries have characterized the idea of jewellery, have been preserved to this day and reinterpreted by those involved in the making process.

Selection 2012:

Contemporary jewellery between past and future
When thinking of contemporary jewellery, we tend to associate this art form with the use of new materials and innovative techniques, but increasingly in recent years, many jewellery artists have found tradition to be a valuable source of inspiration, creating a connection between past and present.

The criterion I have chosen to adopt for the selection of works to be incorporated into the Cominelli Foundation Collection, has been that of analyzing those elements that in the course of centuries have characterized the idea of jewellery, have been preserved to this day and reinterpreted by those involved in the making process. Materials used from the origins of this practice, traditional techniques that have fallen into disuse and ancient or apotropaic forms reinterpreted with a new language and innovative ideas.

Thus the history of jewellery becomes the key to comprehend new elements characterizing personal adornment today, enabling us to have a more complete view of this form of art.

Accordingly, pearls that have always been central to jewellery making, have been reassembled so as to appear under a different form and light; the traditional cameo has been deranged in its approach, although maintaining the characteristics of identity that have always distinguished it; niello, used in antiquity as an inlay on engraved or etched metal, reappears as a material element; enamel, used in various historic contexts as a substitute for precious stones is now applied as a pictorial element through a new expressive language; claw settings, used to hold stones, are now deprived of their original function to become part of the jewellery themselves.

The recontextualization of forms that are typical of the past opens contemporary jewellery to new expressive routes, providing the spectator with a wide range of works that are filled with historical and cultural references to be discovered and interpreted.
