Once (about 20 years ago), I filled the drawing of a human figure with colors - it was a part of a self-analysis exercise. I filled forearms and hands with flames...
The idea sparkled suddenly. My memories smoldering here and there quickly burst into a warm palette of colors and spilled into new areas of thought, which quickly took up a new task. Suddenly whole my mind and hands were on fire.
This is how these hot cufflinks were made.
A feast of colors, golden gears shining in the fire, extended tongues of flames with smooth, nearly liquid shapes... yet sharp and hot!
It is an art jewelry piece for someone who creates with own hands - whether in wood, stone, metal/machine, paint, letters or numbers. For someone whose hands are burning to work, who can be lively and full of energy - as if he was supposed to steal the fire from gods. And everything he/she touches is melted into some new, amazing creations.
Flames sizes: 17mm x 29mm
Settings: sterling silver 925
Cufflink insides: brass parts of watch movements in resin.
The original artistic jewellery is something more than just a nicely framed stone - a shine of precious metal, buckle, clip or pendant. It is a huge dose of creativity, memories/knowledge and skills of the creator. Each time it is not only a product of a machine, but a genuine part of the man who created it, whose determination and will brought the object out of non-existence.
