ANDRÉ RIBEIRO - JEWELLERY DESIGN
light loves to play in the dark
Inspires by "objets trouvés" of the artist Marcel Duchamp the jewellery creator André Ribeiro in the 80s started to combine two contradicting materials with each other to new pieces of jewellery: Diamonds and black hard rubber. His decisive inspiration spring was a rubber ring which is used, actually, in the hydraulics as a gasket. With a diamond, hardest of all precious stones, Ribeiro has found the ideal contrast point to this unimportant object.
