‘Joias Coloridas’ New jewellery by Mary Odorcic
Celebration drinks Saturday 21st April 2012 – 4 - 6pm
Joias Coloridas means coloured jewels in Portuguese. It is also the name of the latest body of precious jewellery works inspired by Mary Odorcic’s recent travels to Carnival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Each piece depicts elements inspired by parade masks, including their shape, eyeholes and patterns.
Mary’s new collection celebrates the colour and vibrancy of Carnival through coloured gems, resin and silk. She pays tribute to the rich grand costumes by attaching the jewels and precious metals, by stitching with silk.
