Paris based Tzuri Gueta is the inventor of patented silicone and silk textile jewelry designs and perhaps the world’s foremost silicone artist. Through experimentation and a series of ‘happy accidents’, Gueta developed a way to extrude hot silicone through silk tubes to create these luscious forms.
Gueta’s signature collection of rings, necklaces and bracelets look as though they were plucked from the sea. Gritty, organic forms reminiscent of the raw, sensual sea coral. The element of surprise in this body of work? Though each piece appears rough-hewn, hard and heavy, they are instead soft, pliable and lightweight. A tactile experience.
