Rock It! Alighieri Surreal Betrayal Earrings

Wednesday 30 May 2018

 Inspired by Dante Alighieri's 1320 poem Divine Comedy, considered to be one of the greatest works of world literature, each piece of Rosh Mahtani jewellery corresponds to one of the poet's 100 poems. As the pilgrim journeys through the realms of Hell, Purgatory, and Paradise, Dante encounters mythical creatures, scraggy landscapes, and terrifying demons. 

Lost Dreamer collection infiltrates the role of dreams to escape from the surreal nightmare of reality. Dante uses art, music and storytelling as a form of conscious survival. He is the narrator and character in the poem, putting himself in nightmarish scenarios such as waking up in a middle of a dark forest and encountering monsters so terrifying that he writes himself out of it. Sometimes the dream is magical verging on a mirage, with surreal concoction of haunting imagery and his own version of relentless hell, which causes him to lose consciousness. The line between reality and dreaming is blurred.

 The Surreal Betrayal earrings is influenced by his odyssey where characters are wrapped in liquefied gold. Like Dante's subjects, the earrings are battered, imperfect and melancholy, reflecting on the story of his ordeal.

 For Lady Grey Jewelry inspiration comes from the most unlikely sources such as the flawed and the incomplete, yet they transform such influences into flawless ingenuity and imperfect beauty, an underlying hint that the necessity to finish a piece of jewellery to achieve innovative results is a rule that most certainly requires to be rewritten.

The Brushstrokes collection is hand painted and cast in bronze using a distinctive technique developed by Lady Grey. One of the most eye-catching and playful pieces is the Louise ring where the brushstrokes appears to float on the finger when worn, or accidentally getting paint on your hand at initial glance. Another favourite of mine is the Gwendolyn earrings (meaning 'white ring in Welsh) a playful twist to the asymmetric trend with its mismatched brushstrokes in high gloss rhodium finish, its undulating strokes catching the light and glimmers at every tilt, twist and turn. 

Often, the simplest idea is a stroke of genius.
