Jacques Jarrige

"Omega" Necklace , 2015
Gold plated brass
9.50 x 6 in (24.13 x 15.24 cm)
This elegant piece of jewelry is hand-sculpted and hammered in brass by Jacques Jarrige then gold-plated with 18-karat gold (3 microns). The movement achieved in this necklace is reminiscent of his iconic screen, mobiles, stabiles and lighting Jarrige's jewelry is more companion than ornament, heightening one's physical awareness and bestowing the pleasure of inhabiting a well-built structure — a structure so light that it doesn't weigh on the body while delivering the theatricality of Jarrige's fluid gestures, translated into common yet gorgeously crafted metals. The intentional lack of preciousness allows for a sense of spontaneous playfulness.
