Philipp Missaghi. Brooch: Schmuckstück 51, 2018. Silver, acrylic glass, dental wire.. 5 x 8 cm. Photo by: Dora Kuthy. From series: Mutation of Tradition. 
. The piece reflects on photo 51, an X-ray diffraction image of crystallized DNA, from 1952 that was the result of the research by the British scientist Rosalind Franklin. Although the image and Franklin´s work changed our understanding of DNA and can therefore be understood as the basis of modern day science, her achievements only received recognition recently.
. The material and form of the piece of jewellery were chosen to incorporate the materiality of images therefore photographs, light and shadow. Silver was chosen for its pale colour and for being the metal to reflect the most light. The composition of the piece in two layers allows direct light to shine through the acrylic glass, creating shadows where the glass is engraved and therefore recreating the act of making a shadow image. The structure also allows the shadows to wander, creating movement and realising the moment the picture of DNA was taken. The tubing at the back allows the wearer to choose whether they want to wear the piece as a brooch or a pendant, for which there are two different possibilities of hanging it.. Philipp Missaghi

Miriam Boehmerle. Brooch: HOMUTATION. Die Hominisation als Mutation, 2018. Sterling silver, stainless steel, tourmaline.. 8 x 5 cm. Photo by: Dora Kuthy. From series: Mutation of Tradition. 
. My brooch deals with the issue that the Homo Sapiens could be a kind of mutation because of its questionable way to the top of the food chain.The tooth symbolizes the connecting thread between all human species because its form is known to be one of the few aspects which distinguished them from other human ancestors. The wire rack represents a schematic depiction of Darwins phylogenetic tree and the tourmaline stands for the marking on a map which says „you are here“. This plays with the idea that the Homo Sapiens is on a journey and that the Mutation isn’t at its end.. Miriam Boehmerle

However, coral and pearl jewellery changed over and over and vary especially in the contemporary jewellery from the picture we usually have in mind. With my work I want to show those beautiful materials in a modern context and inspire to experience their full potential.. Lucia Buhr

Ulrike Burgholzer. Bracelet: Mokume Gane, 2018. Mokume Gane, 925 silver, bronze.. ø 7.5 cm. Photo by: Ulrike Burgholzer.  
. Bridging past technology withcontemporaryjewellery is not a mere matter of using an ancient technique, but a thrilling encounter of the two, thus fostering ongoing alterations and enhancements of this technique. In my thesis examples of ancient and contemporary art objects and jewellery are presented and allow to gain an insight into the wide range of Mokume Gane. In addition this book is intended to give an understanding of both, the technique and aspects of the theory of jewellery.
. Based on two japanese haikus:
. "tsuki to ware to mono omou koro kumo okoru" by Katô Kyôtai (As the moon and I wanted to think about something, clouds appeared)
. and "uekiya no oite yuki-taru kochô kana" by Ôshima Ryôta (Oh, the gardener left a butterfly at ours), the idea was to find new ways of interpretation of mokume gane. . Ulrike Burgholzer

Reinhilde Lahner. Necklace: 21N1, 2018. Gold 750, sterling silver, niello, aquamarine.. L 70 cm. Photo by: Reinhilde Lahner. 
. I love Niello. And I love Gold - of course. Both materials contrast in a mysterios and unusual manner with each other. The pure and simple shapes I use in my designs emphasize this contrast and assign more importance to the surface. 
. I found out about Niello during a workshop with Petra Zimmermann in 2017. Fascinated by this unique technique i decided to design my diploma project with Niello and write my thesis about it. The Niello I used for this necklace was made by myself according to the recipe of Maestro Philip Sajet.. Reinhilde Lahner

. The emotions of the space in between should be transformed into a haptical object. The tension between two people should be expressed through the object. It can be interpreted positive or negative.

Magdalena Tritscher. Object: Frida y Magdalena, 2018. Leather, cement, chrome plated brass.. L 160 cm. Photo by: Magdalena Tritscher. 
. Inspired by the life of suffering of Frida Kahlo it has been the aim to create an object deforming the body. One of these objects are corsets and they have been a major source of inspiration for my artwork. From a medical point of view, the corset provides posture to support healing. In contrast to that a body-forming object has been created, which does not push the body into the correct position, but deforms it. The body is bulled by weights into an unnatural position. It is an attempt to present the combination of mental an physical health problems without suppressing artificial expression and work.. Magdalena Tritscher
