Maria Cristina Bellucci

Statement
For several years I worked as theatre costume and accessories maker, creating also a wide range of jewellery for stage use. I developed a strong interest for contemporary jewellery and I dedicated myself to it. As much as designing and making my own personal jewellery collection, I work on commission, and also design and create jewellery in collaboration with other artists and designers. What characterized my early work was the use of very thin metal sheets and wires, experimenting with hollowness and fullness. In later work, I started using even thinner metal sheets, as if working with paper sheets, creating pieces that were voluminous and light at the same time. My more recent work is characterised by having more solid looking elements and also by the introduction of colour, not previously explored.
