LA COMPAGNIA DEL GIOIELLO and Thematic Exposure
“THE FOUR SEASONS”
A very special exposure space within the exhibition, will host, for the first time at EUROMINERALEXPO, the Group of Artists and Goldsmith Artisans popular as "THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE JEWEL."
For the first time in Turin, Sarah Sudcowsky, Giorgio Borghi, Giovanna Bellini and Marilisa Parodi, will present Artworks which match the World of Mineralogy with that of Precious.
The main feature of this innovative Company of Artists is, in fact, the creation of “One of a Kind” Jewelry entirely handmade (sculpted, molded, wrought, welded, woven, knotted), but not only: to stand out on their Creations, developed from time to time on different and original Themes, protagonists will not only be the usual cut gems, how much more out-and-out Minerals, showing the beauty and uniqueness of each stone in its intact and original crystal habit.
For EUROMINERALEXPO2014, the FELLOSHIP OF THE JEWEL attend the Show with the Thematic "THE FOUR SEASONS", where will come to life, shape and color, Jewels which tell about the perennial Cycle of Nature, which crosses, over each Solar Year, three four Periods that trace the Birth, Development and Death, within an endlessly expanding time and becoming incessant evolution.
Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter will be originally portray by the 4 Artists, who will choose the most inspiring Crystals and Gems for every Season, mounting them among sheets ofcurled and wrought metal, mergers of burnished silver and gold drops, pastes made of natural fibers carved and shaped by hand, ropes and fibers woven and knotted to complex works of macramé.
"The SEASONS represent the Cycle of Life: birth, adaptation, reproduction, development, death and inevitable re-birth, as in a Universal Circle travelled to Infinity that is endlessly in a constant state of becoming."
Thus introduces the topic of the impending Thematic Show on ARTISTIC JEWELRY, SARAH SUDCOWSKY ("Fairies's Gems"), Founder and Coordinator of the Group:
"With the Solar Year’s Seasons, our work has the aim of resuming and deepening, in a contest still more connected to Nature and Terrestrial Life, Theme previously touched at Edition 2014 of BOLOGNA MINERAL SHOW: " THE FOUR ELEMENTS. "
Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter are actually the material and “earthly” manifestation of the Four Elements that make up the Manifest Universe: Water, Fire, Earth and Air.
The completeness of the Year Solar - symbol of the Full Cycle of Life itself- observe fulfilling the harmonious fusion of Principles YIN and YANG, essential components of Duality that shape the Earthly Dimension: we live between the Hot and Cold, between Light and Darkness, Rest and Activity, Sleep and Wakefulness, Sowing and Harvest.
Seasons give us shades of color, shapes, climate, gently chained to each other, offering every aspect of Existence in a large "loop" face to infinity, while the same every Season it is a minor one that takes place entirely as enhancing four phases of the salient features.
We just think like flowers in bud, and the emerald green of nature in full bloom immediately remind us of the Spring; or as golden fields of wheat, the waves of a crystal clear sea and red hot sunsets let suddenly the heart fly at the thought of Summer; or even to what some gardens cloaked in melancholy rugs of yellow and red leaves make us back to the classic imagery of Autumn; and finally, who would be able to imagine expanses of a white, pristine icy mantle of snow crystals of perfect geometry, without immediately thinking to Winter?
What the FELLOWSHIP OF THE JEWEL aims to realize for THE FOUR SEASONS is just that: to give shape, color, LIFE, every single Season to materialize in form of Jewel, the complete Cycle Life does in Nature.
As always, every Element of the Company will work according to their most distinctive prerogatives, styles, techniques and sources of inspiration.
We want our work to be as homogeneous as possible in the development and collaboration, as much as varied and polyhedral in the final result.
We are four we too, such as the Elements, such as Seasons themselves, such as the solidity of the Square that, stronger of its any corner, depicts the primary foundation of Earthly Creation.
Each of us is different and recognizable among others, yet our work, close to each other inside the cabinets of the Exposure, do not contradict, but rather they support and complement each other. "
Again for THE FOUR SEASONS, SARAH SUDCOWSKY uses sculptural techniques where matter is pliable and malleable for shaping Dreams and Wishes of Crystals, Dragons, Fairies and enchanted geometries, where sometimes stands out the sparkle of silver wires, between torchons of Precious Yarns and fantasies of shapes and colors.
GIOVANNA BELLINI ("Jewels EtiChic") introduces herself in the Group and in the issue of THE FOUR SEASONS telling:
"The idea that inspired me in the creation of these jewels is to represent, as well as with the colors of crystals and metals, the energy of Life in every Season, through shape and movement of the Metal.
At Spring Energy of Life pulsates and pushes, buds pushing to get out of the ground, as the springs ready to shoot, as far as possible; Spring is growing, developing, moving, tender but firm to the renewal of Life.
In Summer Energy is Light, Heat, Color, Reverb, rays of Sun, blue sky, ice in drinks that refresh, Green Meadows, Red Ground burned by the Sun.
In Autumn colors light up with warm colors, while Life slowly gives way to Death. The forms shrivel, fold back on themselves, fly off course by Wind.
In Winter Energy is Static, the ice takes rigid and pointed forms, Cold freezes Movement. Geometry and Rationality inspired shapes.
In the creation of my Jewelry I only use recycled metals, which are made from disused objects or industrial waste: brass, copper and silver take on a new life and form, showing their ability to morph in time and eternity. I also do not use any type of welding or adhesive, leaving that both the structure and the elasticity of Metal to gently wrap each single Crystal.
Also MARILISA PARODI (“Elementerre”) talks about her work:
"The macramè, mostly known as" lace nodes "is a technique in which a series of wires are variously twisted and knotted to form a substantial lace from geometric design. The origins of this technique can be sought in the Arab countries, but through trade, spread throughout the Mediterranean area.
The same twists and knots that were once precious to form fringes with towels and curtains are kept alive today in current and creative fashion accessories, such as necklaces, bracelets, earrings and handbags. This is how unique pieces and small collections, evolving, interweaving past and present, technique and Creativity.
With this ancient Art, through skilful and precise gestures, wires create complex textures that retain an intuition then be released again, welcoming every time new materials. They are like little journeys that tell little stories.
This time the invitation to journey is into the World of Crystals and Stones, to tell of the Seasons, which with their succession mark the Time of Life.
I will try through the plots of my wires, their colors and materials, to bring out the story that, from a look on the outside, will enter to a deeper level, to tell about the personal Seasons interiors.
Concludes GIORGIO BORGHI (Vulca), still pictorial, incisive and metaphysical:
Four points of Energy
Four the number of madness and visions "
Vulca frames strong opposing of Ethics; mergers in Silver and Gold made entirely by hand with Crystals in their pure essence.
All that remains is to wait for the 3 - 4 - 5 October to access the EUROMINERALEXPO 2014 and, through the Thematic Show "THE FOUR SEASONS", enter, through the Creations of THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE JEWEL, in the sphere of interpretation of the Artists for travel with them through Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter, and discover what Minerals, Gems, Materials, Shapes, Symbols and Colors, will have been chosen to give the matter the Essence of this Representation of the Cycle of Life for excellence.

Ora vedo di riscriverlo in italiano e non in googleiano
Belli, ma a noi .....? Bei tempi quando si andava a Torino anche per scambiare minerali e fossili e, al massimo, si potevano vedere delle pietre tagliate e delle fette d'agata o di legno fossile. Ora solo i minerali reggono la sfida mentre i fossili sono in ritirata di fronte alla bigiotteria. Si dirà che le mostre seguono Il mercato e che gli organizzatori non sono Opere Pie, ma, lasciatemelo dire, una volta Torino era una delle migliori mostre in Europa, molti espositori stranieri venivano prima a Torino e poi andavano a Monaco, mentre ora ... ..
