For Julia Sáenz-Angulo.
The designer of jewels Consuelo Sierra has presented in his establishment of Fashion Shopping of Madrid, a singular exhibition of allusive jewels to the wine, good is for his color or the design of his forms, with fig leaves, vine shoots, bunches of grapes or representation of fables as that of the fox and the grapes of Esopo. Along with the jewels, different bottles and crystal glasses with wine made use of Rioja, Rivera of the Duero, The Spot, Sherry or Wine-cellar, to reveal the amazing equivalence of the color between the precious or noble stones, with the different broths of the country. At once of opening, Letizia Arbeteta gave herself a lecture on the topic.
Consuelo Sierra tells that it takes a few years doing this so singular relation collection between the jewels and the wine, with the idea of presenting it in 2009, twentieth anniversary of his signature.
Between the most singular pieces the earrings meet grapes bunches by means of seed pearl of the XIXth proceeding for his style of the Mediterranean Levant, Salamanca or Zamora. Surprising the big brooch with the said Esopo fable of the first of the XX.th. “It is a piece that me several times have wanted to buy but that I have refused to sell not to impoverish the collection”, says the designer. Not very far a purse of the 20s embroidered with fig leaves in steel facetado, that imitates very well the sheen of the ancient diamonds.
If we approach the color we will see jewels with brilliant color champagne, or dark brown like the Sherry wines. The equivalence of the red wines with the rubies or garnets is entire; of the rosés and clarets with the tourmalines and the beryl morganita is exact, as well as the emeralds and aquamarines in pink tone. Similar other amazing is of the tourmaline with the green glass of the bottles. “In sum, there can be a stone, a gem, for every wine”, tells Consuelo Sierra, at the time that it describes the typology of each of the ancient jewels, of epoch or avant-garde that they compose the sample.
“The jewel is probably the artistic form that better can represent the values of the grapes and the wine: the qualities of colors and textures; the intensity and the saturation of the tones that resemble straight the flavor of the best broths”, Consuelo Sierra concludes.
