Jacqueline Ryan sketches, models, and jewelry at Antonella Villanova in Florence

British born, based in Umbria since 2001, Jacqueline Ryan is greatly inspired by nature in various forms with delicate scales and subtle movements. Her sketches and paper models for her jewelry designs are works of art themselves. Details are translated into beautiful organisms recalling the geometry found in nature, transformed into intimate sculptures. Ryan makes “slow jewelry” with everything done by her own hands — all the incredible minutely pierced, sawed, and soldered elements, with colored accents of vitreous enamel and precious metals. Her work is part of many collections including the contemporary jewelry of the Galleria degli Argenti in the Palazzo Pitti. Here are images from her recent exhibition at the Antonella Villanova Gallery in Florence, Italy.
