Silvia Furmanovich, the revered Brazilian jewelry designer who is renowned for her visionary designs that capture the most beautiful and minute details of nature, is releasing an extraordinary monograph, out this month, that captures the breadth of her exquisite one-of-a-kind creations.
The beautifully illustrated Silvia Furmanovich: Nature, Art and Adornment, which is a must-have for the libraries of jewelry lovers and collectors alike, focuses on not only Furmanovich's unconventional combinations of gemstones and natural materials, but also salutes the time-honored traditions of craft from the many cultures that bring her pieces to life.
From sharing stories of Indigenous women and their beadwork to the Brazilian artist working to preserve the art of marquetry and the master painters she works with in India, Furmanovich's (whose own great-grandfather was a master goldsmith, providing pieces to the Vatican) monograph pays homage to the great crafts and techniques that make her designs so singular, as well as the many places she's traveled to for inspiration.
“I am very honored to share with the world our collaborations with craftsmen from around the globe in the last 20 years," Furmanovich says. "It is very important for me that the book is most importantly viewed as a celebration of the tireless and brilliant work of all the artists who have ever worked with us.”
Silvia Furmanovich: Nature, Art and Adornment is out this month, published by Assouline, with text by Beatrice Del Favero.
