Jewellery is an art form, along the lines of music, painting, sculpture, theatre, etc. You cannot call jewellery an applied art, because it’s application is not purely functional like that of a ceramic pot. The function is emotional and very intimate. And it´s worth something. Emotional function means you don´t have to wear it, or it doesn´t have to be an object with a pin…It functions for our senses. Jewellery is an investment in emotion.

Beautiful Beast designed by Martín Azúa and made by the jeweller Roc Majoral.

 When I was a child I observed with placid terror how spiders manipulated their prey. A ritual as relentless as refined that i have tried to reproduce in a piece of jewelry. Normally jewels are kind objects, but in this case they have a different role; it is something dangerous to be handled with great care. It is a golden spider with 8 very sharp flexible legs. A temporal piercing which incorporates pain as an unavoidable aspect of the jewel. The process of fastening is almost surgical, the skin is disinfected, it is applied and it is removed with a small mechanical artefact. The process is not free of danger and pain. Beauty hurts and requires an act of bravery and submission. The jewel possesses and controls you as the spider with its prey.
Repulsion and fascination, the insects have exercised a strange fascination in the jewellers of all the epochs.

"This was 2007" by Silke Fleischer
The entire inventory of standarized everyday objects that inspire me are displayed: an open book.
The significance of this passion of objects types is exploring what is around me and effect me. The jewellery piece appears to celebrate these object as a materialisation of pure form. It feels like creating a new reality, a scene, that becomes a medium for human contemplation, presiding to show us something: Yourself in your world.

"…ordinary objects of daily life appear to interest him fist and foremost as exemplification of this theory of simple bodies that tigger off universal sensations. …These objects were now chosen merely for reasons of plasticity. They server as illustrations of another point of view… : The theory of figurative associations in art. "
