Margherita de Martino Norante

I like making single standing pieces of jewellery. They are all different but have a common starting point: the idea that jewellery talks about the wearer.

A piece of jewelry is a powerful instrument of communication. It is worn on the body or on top of clothing so it’s directly between our selves and the world. Not only is the first thing to be seen, but more than clothes, it is superfluous and one makes a conscientious decision to wear it.

So I make puppets, reproduce undergarments, play with fetish and icons coming from my culture, education and everyday things.

My pieces are my way of ironically reflecting on human frailty and on those contrasting wishes of revealing, hiding and disguising oneself that each of us feels.

“Riflessioni Superficiali” is a new series of pieces that I’m working at. I’m using hand engraving technique to trace on a silver sheet natural patterns that, almost like a tatoo, adorn and characterize the wearer’s skin.
