CHRISTINA BRAMPTI - Necklace w/ rubber cord, wrapped ceramic chain & wrapped waxed cord
Christina Brampti believes that there are many ways to view reality and her jewelry reflects that. Using a wide range of materials, she explores different ways of working with each one, resulting in a collection that embraces geometric minimalism, soft undulating shapes, and relaxed, urban cool.
She explores scale, using brushed aluminum tubes, both rounded and squared in different sizes, & combines them with cords of varying thickness and materials, including rubber, leather, nylon, tulle, elastic, and cotton.
Different techniques are used in the combination of cords, from tightly wrapping one cord around another to create texture to inserting smaller cords inside net tubing to add weight and visual interest.
