Patrizia di Carrobio
As I had to choose 40 pieces to exhibit, I decided to play. Play with jewels, with you visitors, with my imagination, let it dream and let you dream as well. So, I considered that a piece reminds me of the south, another one reminds me of America, another one of my childhood. And I thought what will evoke in all of you, how it will affect your imagination, and how to display them in a different way. The second point I think you have noticed is that I chose only brooches and earrings. Why? I chose earrings because I think they are the most playful objects. They have a huge downside for us women: we can’t see them when we wear them. But when we put them on, we have lots of fun, and once they are on, we don’t have to think about them anymore. As for the brooches, I think they are the most versatile of all, because we can mix them up or change them. Why pinning them only on the front of the dress? No, we can attach them on the border of the dress, we can put them on the cuffs, or on the shoes, or on a purse, why not? Or even on our hair.
