Cityscapes collection of wearable structures seeks to unify natural and manmade landscapes. Here, the functional support acts as a horizon line from which shards are reflected to create interactive elements with varying geometric intricacy.

Works in the collection include a double ring, large earrings, and a pair of cufflinks, all of which grow from aggregated clusters of folded shards - the primary unit of the designs which are inspired by metropolitan skylines mirrored on bodies of water.

Presented by Elisabetta Cipriani – Jewellery by Contemporary Artists.
