Intro
Jewels & Chocolate is the union of two artistic disciplines, in which jewelers have been asked to design and build an unique mold to be used by Master Chocolatier as a formal and conceptual basis for creating a chocolate with special ingredients and at the same time this mold will be used by the jeweler to create the piece of artistic jewelry.
 

In the framework of the 9th edition of JOYA Barcelona Art Jewelery Fair and with the aim of linking artistic jewelry with the main theme of this year "gastronomy", we present the project Jewels & Chocolate curated by Leo Caballero and Amador Bertomeu from Klimt02.

The exhibition will be held at the Museu del Xocolata in Barcelona, ​​from September 20 to October 10, where we can appreciate an artistic dialogue between 11 jewelers and 11 high-level pastry chefs masters.

Hsinyu Candy Chu. Brooch: Kachina, 2017. Copper, sterling silver, nickel silver.. 4.5 x 6.5 x 2 cm. 
. Hopi is one of the Native American tribe. They believe that all things in this world possess two things: the visible object and a spirit counterpart. Kachina doll head, squirrel and horse are separated chocolate modules but when the three parts connect together they make a complete Kachina doll which one can use as a brooch. The idea is that the parts of the Kachina doll can be separated and they can combine like a puzzle. 
.  
. This jewelry and chocolate project was a collaboration between me and a graphic designer Grace Min Shan Lee who designs the graphics of Kachina. Both of us were so inspired by the Native American jewelry collector Charles Mo who lives closely bounded to Native American culture, religion and spirituality.. Hsinyu Candy Chu

The image of my choice for the cameo is the one of the potato. Letting this every day object take the centre spot of the cameo to shine like the brightest star.. Elin Flognman

. It is hard to tell when mankind became religious and spiritual seeking beings. What we do know is that the early religious practice was strongly connected to nature.

Annamária Mikulik. Brooch: The Gourman, 2017. Sugar, paper, metal, 24 carat gold foil.. 7 x 12 cm. 
. The Gourman brooch outlines the luxurious food we select to display our social status and to portray our adherence to trends in a way that’s detrimental to the economies proving it. It’s a metaphor of our selectiveness, portraying the spoilt rotten way of merging our breakfast, lunch and dinners into social media, Instagramming the taste out of our meals, hunting for clickbait and popularity in a sense that’s feeding our egos much more than our stomachs.
.  
. Are you hungry? A quick glimpse in your Instagram feed of choice reveals carefully curated menus of endless dishes, beautified through a plenitude of apps and distributed to millions of customers. Are you thirsty? Everything is in reach, from the deliciously cotton candy colorized vanilla ginger organic chai latte to the blended flavours of your next best bio multivitamin king size smoothie.
. 
. Are you craving for more? Today we are replacing affordable grocery stores with extravagant alternatives, push out bodegas for yoga studios and irreparably alter the neighbourhood hum. There is sincerity in this lifestyle, but also a lack of understanding of how impactful the shift is long-term. Food is losing its core sense of nutrition, while we are crowning our food on high pedestals and buying it for big money just to show off ourselves. / Ioana Cristina Casapu

. Since ancient times, chocolate and garlic are related to the gods: the cocoa plant according to the legend of Mayas and Aztecs was brought to the men by the god Quetzalcoatl and from that moment the chocolate (drinkable) was taken in glasses of fine gold and was only destined for adults, elites and warriors.

XVI) and among other uses in Europe was considered as: try for the monk's fast days, the drug of love in the courts of France, disincentive and stimulating to provide well-being and energy.
