The transformation of the lavish ornaments of the Baroque into contemporary jewelry has long characterized the work of Tamara Grüner. Inspired by the Berlin iron jewelry of the 19th century she combines pressed and stamped elements in the historicism style with black porcelain and plastic. In the series Brilliant Memories, the artist deals with the history of the Bohemian fashion jewelry-making family, Prade. From the glass stones, plastic components and metal parts that are still available, she designs jewelry at the borderline between art, craft and fashion. The rich ornamentation of the metal pieces and the intense colors of the glass stones do not act as ornaments in the jewelry but as essential details.
