Vivit Collection (Earrings and Ring) by Brazil & Murgel Contemporary Jewelry
2013 - 2014, Platinum A' Jewelry, Eyewear and Watch Design Award Winner
Inspiration
Inspired by organic forms found in nature.
Creativity
Inspired by forms found in nature, Vivit Collection creates an interesting and curious perception by the elongated shapes and swirling lines. Vivit pieces consist of bent 18k yellow gold sheets with a special black plating on the outer faces. The leaf-shaped earrings surrounds the earlobes so that it's natural movements creates an interesting dance between the black and gold – hiding and revealing the yellow gold underneath. The sinuosity of the forms and the ergonomic attributes of this collection present a fascinating play of light, shadows, glare and reflections.
Design Challenges
One of the biggest challenges in the production of Vivit pieces was set the curves corresponding to the project, and respecting the resistance of the bent gold plates. Another major challenge was the creation of the earrings mechanism that allows the parts to move freely, despite the pressure on each earlobe.
