After the first and the second edition, this time the exhibition will also present foreign artists, including some of the most important names in the international artistic world of jewel. The exhibition wants to celebrate the best choices of this sector that is between art, design and craft. Thanks to ESH Gallery closeness to decorative arts, once again will be given the chance to know better this peculiar world, made by little and precious artworks, some really ready to wear sculptures.
Contemporary creations will be presented, where the jewel is not only an aesthetic ornament, but above all it is an object with a deeper meaning, that is the unique artist’s point of view.
There will be shown some unique pieces with an artistic meaning and value, where the added value will be the handmade fact and the personal interpretation of the single artist to the chosen material. The nature and the space will not be the only subjects of the show; on the contrary, the exhibition will be presented as a collection of curiosities, a modern Wunderkammer, where people will be enchanted by the most innovative shapes, and will be surprised by transformation and metamorphosis concepts. A world made by possibilities, ready to explore the imagination of different authors. A world that will also lead the sight of the viewer with wonder and curiosity.

These subjects will be explored through the experience of some Italian and foreign artists, interested by the various aesthetic chances that are given by the jewel. The Hungarian artist Orsolya Losonczy mixes precious metals to raw ores, giving birth to poetic jewels, recalling peculiar shapes with colors by nature . Especially in Mynerals series, the artist’s wish is making real her personal view of a wondering garden full of her childhood memories. New this year will be taking the attention the works of Israeli Daniella Saraya, young and award - winning designer by the most important shows of the system.Her creations, mostly made with stones and elements from nature, explore the multi functions of jewels from the handling materials to the conceptual research based on human experience.

The works of German Carina Shoshtary are shown in the most important galleries that are specialized in contemporary jewels. Her research is on the color properties and their physiological effects. Through the choice of unusual materials, like graffiti pieces and vegetable peels, her jewels give to the viewer a strength and power sense, telling stories between real and imaginary.

The concept of metamorphosis is the starting point for the creations of the young Sara Barbanti, winner of the last edition of JOYA 2018 Price. Her jewels are mostly made with wood turned into carbon, based on the contrast between simple materials and precious metals, natural shapes and simple geometries, shades and lights. The research based on the relationship between different materials, is the added value for her artworks. We will find the same theme in Lodovica Fusco’s artworks, who creates jewels processing materials from her own land. The same subject is linked to Lucilla Giovannetti's and Valentina Caprini ’s technique, who turn fabric elements into precious jewels.

As a confirm to Esh Gallery’s interest into the minimalistic aesthetic linked to the oriental world, will be presented the new collection inspired to the punctuation made by Eleonora Ghilardi who will be facing Yoko Takirai ’s geometric jewels, and the elegant simplicity of Laura Volpi ’s creations.
