This 18 Karat yellow gold brooch N1 is from a Bamboo triptych, which can be worn in a Chinese calligraphy way. It is a new It-piece with multiple ways to encrust on your clothes. It has been featured in Vogue UA and Elle UA magazines.
This contemporary jewellery piece was designed as 'lines and spots' play, which is one of the principles of Asian ink calligraphy. Bamboo traditionally symbolizes the wisdom of flexibility. The shining of the beautiful metal meets the natural texture and lines of the brooch by the artist, and is the pleasant way to represent the best, what gold can give our eyes. The gold is not loosing its shining and beauty with the time, in comparison to silver, which needs cleaning once a year or two. Though the silver at some design cases can also be attractive because of its darkness.
The Bamboo brooch is a perfect gift for a philosopher or art collector, or a fashion hunter for new lines and jewellery ideas. It also can be gifted to three friends or family members to symbolise the union.
It is a limited edition piece, which was designed in 2010 by oil painter and ink calligraphist Polya Medvedeva.
