Memory of the Land

Memory of the Land


price: 1 250 € / 1 322 $
Bronze, Silver
Focal piece: 5 cm


Bold, beautifully detailed, extremely eye catching necklace, made of bronze (sculptural elements), silver (everything else - stone settings, jumprings, chain) and amazing ammonites. Darkened to evoke feeling of rich soil, weathered rocks and rough ground. Only partially polished to create an interesting contrast. Every single detail was made by hand, without using any moulds or ready findings. It's a real one of a kind, collector's piece. Signed and marked with a year of creation (in this case it's 2016, when the focal piece was made - it's marked still with "Drakonaria" logo). It's a story about memory of the land. On a literal level - geological layers (every spiral was made by "painting" layers and layers of bronze until getting three dimensional effect) and past "trapped" in ammonite fossils.

Figuratively it's a story about passing of time and how we build on it and how this what we built becomes part of the past again and again. It's about recurring cycles - similar, but never the same. It's a question about collective memory of the land and how and what we add to it. This necklace is rather big and bold - focal, sculptural piece is 5 cm long (2 in), the biggest ammonite is 3 cm wide (1.18) and smaller ones are 1.6 cm to 1.4 cm (0.62 in to 0.55 in). Length of this necklace is around 44 cm (17. 32 in) plus regulation. It's definitely a statement piece of jewellery and I recommend it for a special occasion. The weight of this necklace is around 103 grams, which is quite a lot, but still very comfortable. It will come packed in a nice box. If you have any questions, please, ask.

Recently I had a pleasure of taking part in an amazing project called „Cabinet of curiosities”, started and organized by Marta Norenberg. Marta invited twelve fantastic Polish jewellery makers and asked them to let their imagination run wild, forget about the working time, forget about cost of materials and make something they always wanted to make...

  My pendant „Lair of visions” was published in AMCAW calendar (Alliance for Metal Clay Arts Worldwide) for 2021.  This piece is made of sterling silver, milled sterling sheet, fine silver bezel wire, electroplated gold, three labradorites and two peridots. This pendant was hand sculpted using simple tools. No moulds. Every element was formed from scratch. It’s a combination of sculpting in wet clay, slip painting and dry contruction. Stone settings were soldered after firing. The bail was constructed from milled metal, combined with an ornamental element sculpted in metal clay - the elements were soldered together. This piece is a poetic reminiscence of my strolls and meditations in the forest. Forest and its gifts as a source of vision See more photos of this piece here.
