Promoting Contemporary Art Jewelry since 2009

Juan Harnie | « Aesthetical Injection This collection, I used medical materials that are often linked to unpleasant situations like hospitals visits. Once removed from this context they could be transformed into attractive, floral looking jewellery. I got my inspiration from flowers and plants that, even when they turn out to be deadly, at first sight people will attribute positive feelings towards. Contradictory, syringes that administer medicine and heal people are met with fear and disgust. Using these syringes in colorful, floral pieces of jewellery, mimicking the shape and color of flowers, might just make people reconsider their initial feelings towards syringes and see the beauty the designer saw in them. I used medical gauze to imprint the silver or to drench in colored polyurethane and then mold into organic sculptured shapes sprouting silverwork and gemstones. »(*)
