I always loved creating objects, especially geometric ones. As I am
not a "real" artist with a "real" studio, jewelery seemed a good
choice, as you can make it on the corner of a table, and crocheting is
even possible during travels.
One day I tried to grow crochet stiches in an exponential way and I obtained a leaf!! Then I decreased the stiches in the same way, and I got a shell! The next moment my house was filled with wire and metallised yarn, and crocheted shapes reminiscent of ocean or terrestrial life.
Another day, I had the chance to experiment with a shape generator, and I started to interlock polygons in all kind of materials and colours. Here I show just a few results.
The "Platonic earrings" are made from small die cut triangles,
squares and pentagons.
The materials are plastic and autoadhesive vinyl. The pieces are not glued together; they are connected by notches.
The necklace pattern is based on powers of two. The vintage
Majorca pearls are of random size, separated by seed beads in
Fibonacci sequence .
Even though so simple, I am amazed each time that small variations of material or technique give a different result each time, but always create shapes from nature. Are mathematical formulas the alphabet of nature?
The pattern for the golden earrings uses powers of two on one side and powers of three on the other.
