Earrings and Ring
Mouvant Collection was inspired by some aspects of Futurism, such as the ideas of dynamism and materialization of the intangible presented by the Italian artist Umberto Boccioni. The designers aimed for the illusion of movement using static fragments to create a collection of jewelry with high perceptual value and timeless design.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The earrings and the ring of Mouvant Collection feature several gold fragments of different sizes, welded in such a way that achieves an illusion of motion and creates many different shapes, depending on the angle that it is visualized.

One of the biggest challenges was to make the pieces comfortable, despite being made of several small fragments. Another major challenge in assembling each jewelry was welding each fragment in the correct position, preventing the high temperature to affect the other welds - otherwise it would cause the pieces to collapse.
