Amulet I; Amulet II
The pieces of jewellery are signs to be worn on the body, which connect people by their visual language.
These amulets are pieces inspired as sources of protection and force. The shapes of the fig sign and pepper, inspired by traditional Brazilian balangandan bracelets, since ancient times have been representing strength, radiation of light, vitality, and protection at the spiritual level.
Niobium, the metal that I choose to use, gives the blissful possibility to explore its magnificent colours reflected by its oxidised surface. 100% anti-allergic, immediately reaching the body temperature when in contact with the skin, it serves perfectly for making jewellery.
Niobium, 6×15×0,8cm, 4×20×0,8cm
