“In the ten years since Joyas Jóias, Velvet da Vinci’s first exhibition of Latin American Jewelry, there has been a growing awareness and appreciation for the achievements of contemporary jewellers in México, Argentina, Perú and Brazil. For the our exhibition , Delirio y Cordura (Delirium and Sanity) we concentrate on contemporary Chilean Jewelry artists. Each jeweller was inspired by the themes of delirium and sanity, choosing one or both concepts. The idea of harmony and balance versus insanity and irrationality influence the creation of each work through an exploration of shape, color, material, and concept. Chaos, out of order”. Gallery Velvet da Vinci.
