Silver Jewlery Collection
Tetrahedron is found in the structure of many crystals and molecule models, and can be combined into infinite spatial structures. The illusion of infinite structures symbolically implies infinity, and the solid structure alludes to permanence. With its pyramid-like shape, the tetrahedron, as one of the three basic solids, symbolises timelessness eternity. A firm silver tetrahedral structure creates featured contrast to the soft fluidity of the fabric.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The basic building element of the jewelry is the equilateral triangle, and in spatial terms tetrahedron. The tetrahedral structure of connected surfaces is mobile, it follows the shape of the body and provides numerous variations in terms of design. At this creation, the structure enwraps the body, and from below the chest gently falls onto the hips. The creation is completed by bracelets and diadem. Gleam of pyramidal tops is highlighted by embedded ground glass stones.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Conceptual design of jewelry in the form of mobile tetrahedral structure can be a foundation of various embodiments of jewelry covering different parts of the body. Implementation can be quite unconventional, but could in its structure include also different solutions of earrings, bracelets or necklaces. Jewelry can be used completely independently, in free combinations, but can also be adapted and, if desired, fit to design of the cloth.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Two garments with built-in gold and silver jewelry were created in 1998 for a fashion competition. On the basis of these creations, a depth was developed, often exhibited and awarded fashion and photography exhibition project Anima meditans. The creations were often a source of inspiration. But the idea was presented before its time, for the implementation into practice there had time to pass. jewelry collection Infinity is being developed under the trademark Stories design now.
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Silver jewelry pieces with embedded polished glass stones are, according to drawings, made in Zlatarna Celje, a world-renowned jewelry manufacturer with a long tradition of jewelry. The design of the jewelry is adapted to the specific and the structure of the fabrics chosen for female evening clothing. Consideration should be transparency, optical light reflexes, moving of the body and drop of material. Jewelry is swinging especially parts of the body that the garment does not cover, pointing up the harmony of the contrasts between skin, silver jewelry and fabric.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Top of the garment has integrated a bigger piece of silver tetrahedral jewelry structure, supplemented by two symmetrical bracelets 200 mm x 200 mm and diadem 60 mm x 120 mm. Single jewelry pieces can be worn also independently.

The basic question has been how to design jewelry that will, similar to the fabric, follow the shape of a human body. By tetrahedral structure with flexible joints we can form any shape, both in two-dimensional and in three-dimensional space. The mobile jewelry is adjustable, despite its geometrical structure it follows the moving of the body. The structure of the jewelry is emphasized and decorated by embedded glass stones shining on the joints of triangles and tops of tetrahedrons.
The structure of jewelry is geometrical, angular, but flexibility gives it softness and gentleness. The creation is unconventional. It is very important how to wear and to present it. It comes to its utmost beauty when set directly on the skin highlighted with a good direct lighting. Therefore, the jewelry is the most beautiful on evening occasions. The brilliance is the most powerful on the dark background, which also applies to photography of the creations.
