COLLABORATION

 

In collaboration with SOME/THINGS S/TUDIO, Alicia Hannah Naomi has produced exclusive rings that remind of industrial tools spit out an erupting volcano. The designer’s meticulous study of shapes, textures and pigments translates into precious pieces that trap and reflect the light through an intricate design game. Seeking for a clash between nature and nurture, Alicia Hannah Naomi’s creative mind travels through desolate and austere lands, absorbing their bare melancholy and sharp strength to work them in the fine art of gold smithing. The blending of these intense emotions with Alicia’s fine crafting skills is expressed in the rough-hewn surfaces of her jewellery pieces, poignantly underscored by immaculately polished accents.According to Alicia’s highly tactile approach, the textures are burnished and blackened as if they were weathered slates, eroded by harsh winds and blazing flames. Breathtaking sublimes landscapes reflects in the rough brutalism of the jewellery’s profiles, shaped by the designer directly in the primary modeling materials of wax without the need of any sketches. Precious stones like Herkimer Diamonds and Black Sapphires enhance the pieces refined essence as well as their conceptual versatility; indeed the jewellery come with leather chains to be worn as a necklaces according to the wearers’ wishes. The unique value of each element is achieved through an entirely handmade working process that makes each piece different from the others.

The first piece in an ongoing collaboration, GRIS features an asymmetrically set Herkimer Diamond, designed to echo the natural formation of the double terminated quartz inside cavities within dolomite rock.

Alicia Hannah Naomi’s jewellery pieces for SOME/THINGS are exclusively available at SOME/THINGS CONCEPT/STORE, Paris.
