Hello Sunday Readers,

is where art and design meet across the city, January 18-27, 2019. Over
100+ events and exhibitions are free, and the rest are ticketed or by
One of these events is Pattern Recognition from December 18, 2018 to February 18, 2019.
Jewel Envy joins DesingTO with the Asymmetric exhibition display in our three windows on Roncesville extending outside of the exhibition dates. 
The Goldsmiths at Jewel Envy made free design jewel pieces for this event,  with only one premise, the pieces must be Asymmetric.
Among the Goldsmiths than participated in this exhibition I want to show you three of them.

Mauricio Franco, Colombia
Catalyst, earrings, 2018
Sterling silver, purple cubic zirconia, 75mm X 26.3mm X 4.7mm
In his own words, “Catalyst consists
of two triangles with similar details and construction, but the
configuration of the parts and the placement of a few finishes make the
pieces stand apart from each other”. Mauricio Franco

Alexis Kostuk, Canada

Coral Growth II
, earrings, 2018
Sterling silver, turquoise, carnelian, 50mm X 28mm X 11mm
have “asymmetrical turquoise stones as the substrate for “Coral
Growths;” shaping how each is attached and creating similar patterns
with noticeable likeness but ultimately forming asymmetrical pairs”

Shafiq Sawari, Afghanistan
Untitled, earrings, 2018
Sterling silver, 56.5mm X 15.6mm X 1.5mm
word filigree
comes from the Latin word for thread or seed. This delicate and
intricate technique involves twisting extremely fine strands of a
metal—usually gold or silver—to form a pattern. One of the most
important characteristics of filigree is the use of sweeping,
spiraling designs. Filigree can be use across the whole piece or just
to emphasize key features. The reason I chose to make a filigree piece
is that it reminds one of my famous collections after graduating from
. Shafiq
You can enjoy
the rest of our pieces in our three windows on Roncesvilles.
Have a nice Sunday
