„Fusion Design – Considering Roots”
Florence – Italy, Le Arti Orafe LAO jewellery school
February 2017

Jewellery has always been a medium for cultural identity, and in this respect it has been perfectly understood by the people making and wearing it. Contemporary jewellery transcends this local heritage by creating a more global understanding.

All inhabitants of the Global Village have grown up with cultural roots expressed in local art, design and architecture. However, “modern nomads” are at risk of losing the inner link to their original background.

The workshop considered each participant’s personal cultural origin, by researching local specifics in their art and design. With this in mind the participants designed new pieces of jewellery.
