It’s Not Just About Hair - New York City Jewelry Week
It’s Not Just About Hair
The New Collection by Agustina Ros and Suri Jewelry
Presented virtually on the occasion of New York City Jewelry Week
16 - 22 November 2020
Adornment is thrilled to present the new four-hands unpublished collection by Agustina Ros and Giulia Vecchiato – Suri Jewelry, called It’s Not Just About Hair.
It’s Not Just About Hair mixes metal with blown glass, aiming at the perfect combination of these two materials, which naturally fit together giving life to delicate, fun, elegant and feminine shapes. The glass is blown directly onto the metal shapes, thus obtaining a balanced dialogue with the archaic nature of Giulia’s typical figures.
The project takes inspiration from the desire to celebrate the woman’s shared femininity, that particular convivial dimension connected to moments of complicity, during her simple daily rituals, spent with friends, sisters, and other women, especially focusing on the hair and the set of cultural, religious, social and sexual values that hair management for a woman in a given society can entail: hairstyle, poise, color …
The series consists of one of a kind pieces of different shapes and sizes that point to multi-functionality and alternating wearability between pendants, clasps, earrings and pins.
The collection will be presented in a short artistic movie made by Alice Brazzit, which will be launched on the occasion of New York City Jewelry Week on November 16th.
Pieces will be on sale on the new exclusive shop by Adornment
Agustina Ros was born in Misiones, Argentina. Now, she currently resides in Barcelona, Spain, where she opened her own studio with international projection. Her jewelry is crafted with borosilicate glass, modeled and blown by the technique of flameworking. Some pieces are worked with fine metal fuming (gold and silver), and carved and polished, which generates a faceted surface, looking for light reflection.
Giulia Vecchiato was born in Venice in 1992. In 2011 she graduated from the Art School of Venice. In 2014 she obtained a Bachelor’s Degree – Painting – and in 2016 a Degree – with specialization in decorative arts – at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice. In 2017 she continued her path in Traditional Goldsmiths Techniques at Vicenza Institutes (VI). Giulia continues, through SURI, her own research in the context of contemporary jewelry, designing and realizing her pieces in Venice entirely by hand.
