CAO JEWELRY /Covadonga de Viedma

(Shipping, tax, and service quoted by Seller)
5 x 6cm

Brooch made in bronze with lost wax.

This type of Viking brooch is part of the accessories used during the first century by many of the Nordic women, specifically those who lived in what is now Denmark. It was used to close mainly the thick fabrics as a layer that they used in the cold.

I have been found in many viking archeological vestiges of the country, dating from 600 to 900 AD.

His name is honor to Harald Blåtand (blue tooth), son of Gorm, the old man and Thyra, last kings of the Danish Viking dynasty.

by Covadonga de Viedma

CAO JEWELRY was born as an extension of my creative process as an artist. Painting led me to sculpture, sculpture to object art, and art to jewelry. And they all coexist together and they bear fruit day by day.

You will realize that my jewelry work is closely linked to figuration and that I have a special interest in concepts and volume. All my jewelry says something, tells a story or has a meaning.

My designs and my inspiration have to do with my experiences, my experiences, the different countries in which I have lived and the cultures with which I have related. My work has a versatile imprint, at the same time that it is free, authentic, and has a very large part of my personality.

The fundamental technique of my jewelry is the "lost wax casting", a very old sculptural process from the 3rd century BC; and that keeps me attached to the sculpture, and makes my works, small portable sculptures that can be used.

The basic materials that I use mainly are bronze, brass and silver. Incorporating natural semiprecious stones, cultured pearls and crystals. All my pieces are elaborated manually and each one has its "perfection in its own imperfection", since they are handmade and that precisely gives them my personal stamp.

The most important denominator of my jewelry concept is the emotion, passion and dedication and affection that I put into each of my works.
