“Angel”

Eros, the most beautiful among the immortal gods.
Collection 2016

 

“Eros, the most beautiful among the immortal gods, loosener of limbs, who subdues the mind and prudent counsel in the chests of all gods and of all men.”
Hesiod, Theogony, 120-123)

“Angel” is a collection based on mythological scenes of Eros, the young boy, always depicted with wings.

There are many myths and legends about Eros, piercing without mercy with his arrows, mortals and gods alike. I was intrigued by one of those myths in particular- the story of Psyche, who falls in love with the image of Eros and how she fights for that love. The fruit of their sacred marriage is a daughter, named Hedone (meaning “bliss”, “pleasure”).

This is how, with a small collection of silver jewellery, I tried to get in touch with divine antiquity, with the archaeological and architectural treasures and the diverse mythological themes used in fine arts.

The pieces in my collection are made of 925 silver and 24k gold-plated silver, pearls and precious stones.
