Gabriella Kiss anatomical jewelry
Jewelry pieces created by New York designer Gabriella Kiss resemble miniature sculptures embodied in brooches, earrings, necklaces and pendants. Gabriella studied sculpture at the Pratt Institute, and after graduating she improved her skills at Ted Muehling. According to Gabriella herself, these eight years in his studio were the most valuable experience in mastering the art.
The designer created her first anatomical line jewelry with the movement of the hands and individual parts of the body in the early 1990s. The same anatomical line can be traced in the next collection of the artist – “Love Token”. Inspired by the tradition of the Victorian era to give to a loved one a painted eye. In addition to eyes, the designer added “a nose” design, as well as inscriptions in Latin. Also noteworthy is a series of ornaments in the form of insects, snakes or birds.
Remarkably, the jewelry designs and materials are so diverse that it is hard to believe that the same designer created them. Other significant collections include classic jewelry made with the use of precious metals, diamonds, sapphires, rubies, emeralds, and other precious and semi-precious stones.
The maker’s mark may include initials GK, or hand-scribbled designer’s name on the back and purity of gold.
