Do you love surprises? We definitely do! This explains why we could not resist the temptation of participating in the first edition of ‘The Mystery Box’ creative challenge.
In this challenge each and everyone of the participants received a box with some materials completely unknown, that had to be used to manufacture, at least, one jewelry piece. Transforming these materials was allowed and only one additional material could be added.
Do you want to know which materials where inside the box we received? 10 balls and 10 discs made of cork, two aluminum sheets of 10×10 cm and one druzzy quartz cabochon. We decided that adding titanium wire with a thickness of 1 mm would be very useful, so that was our extra metarial.
Taking into considerations that most of these materials are not traditional in the jewelry-making realm, we though that a classical design would help us to find a balance.
A short video of the creation process may be found below:
In adittion, we would like to share with you a brief report of the creation process (in Spanish language).
Finally, we are thrilled to share with you a couple of pictures of the jewelry set that we created and that will be exhibited at the Cork Museum of Palafrugell from June 28th to September 1st 2019:
You can expect further information regarding the exhibition, of course. In the meantime, we want to thank very warmly all the Spanish organizations that have made possible this exciting event: The Cork Museum of Palafrugell, the Spanish Association of Designers of Signature Jewelry (AJA), the Town Council of Palafrugell, the Cork Institute of Catalonia, our fellow colleague Lluis Solano (jewelry designer-maker) and Mr. José María Pérez Buñuel (gemologist, lapidary and jeweler).
Stay tuned, more news about all this coming soon!
