Art Jewelry and Wearable Art by Izabella Petrut
Izabella Petrut is an artist and designer who hand-makes each ring, necklace, brooch and pair of earrings herself, in her studio in Vienna, Austria. Izabella likes to experiment with a plethora of materials like silver, gold, iron, brass, pigments, epoxy resin, pretious and natural stones, textile, paper, food, toys, ready mades, roller skates and many more. In her work, she likes to take advantage of the serendipity and the beauty of what every moment can bring into the aesthetic of a piece of wearable sculpture, therefore, each of her pieces are unique and tells a story.
Jewelry is more than diamond rings.
Art Jewelry is just one of the many identities of the jewelry discipline. When wearing a piece of wearable art, you are part of a bigger conversation. It is a conversation that discusses politics, raises issues, annoys and disturbs, or brings laughter and smiles. Thus, Art Jewelry makes you an actor on the every day scene of performance, happening, culture, sculpture, fashion and street style.
Art jewelry is a lot of things. It is a conversation starter, and a heart igniter. It is also a constant reminder of our own passions, hopes, worries and fears. It is meant to bring art out of the museums and galleries, into the street. It brings together a very special and experimental type of craft, and an artistic approach in terms of a certain level of autonomy, conceptual charge and accurate positioning in the contemporary art and social discourse.
