JEWELS TO LISTEN TO

THE GOLDSMITH ARTISTS MARIA CRISTINA - DESIGNER - AND THE CREATIVE DIRECTOR GERHARD ARE THE FOUNDERS OF UDIRELEFORME.

AFTER LEARNING THE BASIcS IN AREZZO AND FLORENCE, IN 1997 THEY LAID THE FOUNDATIONS OF A FRUITFUL COOPERATION IN VENICE.

THEIR LOVE FOR THE SEA NOT ONLY INSPIRED THEIR FIRST WORKS BUT ALSO THE CHOICE OF THE NAME OF THEIR PROJECT UDIRELEFORME (LISTEN TO THE FORMS). MODELLED BY THE WHISPERS OF THE SEA THE WAVES TAKE SHAPE IN the DARKNESS.

BOLOGNA WAS THEIR NEXT STEP. THEY DEVELOPED THEIR DESIGN AND TECHNIQUES THROUH THE COLLABORATION WITH SEVERAL TREND MARKS FOR THE PRODUCTION OF LIMITED EDITIONS, PROTOTYPES AND BEAUTIFUL UNIQUE JEWELS USING selected precious gems AND ANTIQUE ELEMENTS.

TODAY THEY LIVE IN LUGANO AND CREATE THEIR OWN INDIVIDUAL JEWELLERY IN THEIR STUDIO, LOOKING AT THE MOUNTAINS AND FEELING THE SEA IN THEIR HEARTS.

LOVE FOR ANCIENT TECHNIQUES

Repoussé is one of the most ancient techniques of goldsmith's decoration, whereby the design is raised above a metal sheet laid on a bed of pitch. The relief is obtained by hammering the design alternatively from the right and reverse side of the sheet with chisels and mallet.
When the repoussé work is completed, the sheet is removed from the pitch, cleaned and finished on the right side by chisel work to mark PROFILES and add small details.

HOW DO YOU SEE A JEWEL?

BEFORE LOOKING AT IT, GETTING IN TOUCH, EXAMINING IT CLOSE UP, YOU NEED TO SEE IT. SOMETHING ATTRACTS YOUR ATTENTION? A DISPLAYED NECK, A HAND WELL IN SIGHT, AT LEAST A RAY OF LIGHT IT CALLS. LOOK!

IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW YOU NOTICE IT OR GET CLOSER. WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER IS THE MOVEMENT IT GIVES YOU.

IT IS LIKE A TOUCH, A CONTACT ITS CLOSENESS.

 

EACH JEWEL IS SOMETHING INVISIBLE WHICH CAN ONLY BE SEEN UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS.
