Gioielli modulari by Elifontana

The kinetic jewelry modulating line (Circle in the circle, Golden Rectangle, Algae and OM), patented more than fifteen years ago, born from Elisabetta Fontana research on shape and materials, and inaugurate a new way of conceiving the jewel not only as monile purely aesthetic, but also as an interactive and playful element of the wearer. After high school he attended graphic to the Sforzesco Castle School of Art in Milan and finally graduated in design with a thesis entitled "modularity and kinetics in jewelry design." Expert connoisseur of traditional goldsmith techniques, gained by attending Milanese artisans and artists including the sculptor Davide De Paoli and his school "PriMateria" Elisabetta Fontana, she combines the technical craft to industrial processes. Using the impernatura and joints, instead of the traditional casting, the author manages to create dynamic jewelry – kinetic and rotating - using the assembly of geometric elements. Modular dynamism which is in turn actuated by the wearer that activates it making kinetic. Circles, rectangles and square sections, combine together, forming figures geometric perfect from clear symbolic value. In Circle in the circle, the sum of circles form a pentagon, clearly interpretable as a symbol universal harmony. The physical structure blends into the symbolic and metaphysical structure of the figures. Based on the principles of the golden ratio and the Bauhaus techniques, Elisabetta Fontana realizes the changing jewels that turn into pendants to rings and buckles. The creations of the line called “MODULANDO” is delineated by a continuous manipulation of modular geometry, analytical survey of the materials and playful and symbolic significance that goes beyond the object itself.
