Francesca Cecamore
Making narrative/conceptual/art jewelry is to me about keeping all channels permanently open for stimuli to pass through in order to better dive into my inner world, grab raw ideas and cut them into creations whose facets other people can reflect in, thus also originating their interpretation of the piece depending on their own experience
Human issues and their relationship with life, the whole spectrum of its events and its end are the main object of my recherche
Narrative/conceptual jewelry is the artistic voice that this mid 70s born mixed media italian artist uses to express her view on human issues and their relationship with life, the whole spectrum of its events and its end.
Even during her classical studies and while working as a lawyer up to 2015, this selftaught artist always kept on with her artistic research, until she felt she had to full-time express her creative vision. From that year on, she also attended workshops in metalsmithing, porcelain and ceramics to grow her technical skills. Four of her works (jewelry/small scale sculpture/wall art) now belong to private collections in Pescara and Rome.
On her bench now, an upcoming corpus about grieving process through narrative jewelry creation with the use of personal/family found objects and processed/selected bits of inherited jewels.This recherche ealso gave birth to a peculiar practice of creating one-of-a-kind bespoke jewels using objects-and-bits-of and suggestions provided by the commissioners themselves.
Also under development her ‘ꓤOOTS’ collection, in which 3d gold italian folk tradition jewels turn into 2d porcelain/acrylic empowering pieces with a punk rock twist.
