Artist list

Kazumi Nagano, Maria Rosa Franzin

Alternatives is proud to present the works of two jewellery artists, Maria Rosa Franzin and Kazumi Nagano, who have been protagonists on the international contemporary jewellery scene for many years. The two artists come from two very different worlds, Italy and Japan, but nonetheless share the same intent in their research, in the analysis of the weight of metals and the lightness achieved in the transformation process. This challenge has brought them to make complex structures formed by the use of tiny specks of gold or thin gold wire interwoven as if it were thread. Two worlds, two cultures, that are confronted on the diverse approaches to manipulating and transforming gold, by excellence the most noble of materials.
