The Power of Rings. What makes a ring powerful? Is it the interplay of shifting light, shadow and depth created by the unique combination of metallic, matched colors, or is it the vintage surface that recalls memories and projects unmistakable power?
Since 1995, I have been dedicated exclusively to jewelry design, particularly one-of-a-kind sculptural rings. My artistic interests have been drawn to the personal relationship people have with the jewelry they wear. Sometimes, I add meticulous mechanisms to give the stone set the freedom to follow the owner’s movements, reflecting the wearer in many small, intricate ways. Each of my designs represent a different thematic system—a mirror of multiple metaphors. Whether exploring systems in motion, metamorphosis of insects or the pace of urban life, my passion awakens first in the transformation of the raw material.
During the creative process, I never forget that someone will be wearing the ring. Therefore, rings first need to be very comfortable and belong to the hand. My rings come alive only when they find their owners.
Making jewelry is a way to express emotions, ideas, and narratives, and share them with others. It is also a way to stimulate our senses. The transformation of raw materials into something usable is limited only by our imaginations. -- Claudio Pino. – Claudio Pino
