Open selections for participation in the third edition of the project Artistar Jewels 2016.
Artistar Jewels, is a project conceived by Artistar.it that was born with the aim of offering contemporary jewelery designers and artists the opportunity to disseminate their creations in a widespread manner.
The intent is to expand professional connections by creating real media and commercial contacts. In the two previous editions, more than 200 designers from four continents participated in the initiative who, with their 500 creations, were the protagonists of the two international publications and of the exhibitions-events organized in the city of Milan.
The initiative is open to contemporary jewelery designers, high-end goldsmiths and wearable sculpture artists. The creations that will be selected will include unique pieces and small series made with the help of precious metals and hard stones, but also of less usual materials derived from the recycling of poor and everyday elements.
All proposals must be distinguished by originality, aesthetic and material innovation, coherence between the project and its realization and the emotional impact of the work.
Also for this year the project maintains the same formula that was very successful in previous years; artists from different continents will participate in the project; the selected jewels will be included in an international publication, published by Logo Fausto Lupetti Editore, with contents in Italian and English.
The book will be distributed in all Italian bookshops and in those of the major European capitals, moreover its digital version will reach 5000 professionals in the sector all over the world: concept stores, boutiques, buying groups, importers-buyers, designers-architects, online store, luxury hotel, thalasso resort and spa. All the jewels will be on sale on the online shop www.artistarjewels.com.
The creations will also be exhibited in the Artistar Jewels Exhibition.
The absolute novelty of the 2016 edition is the exhibition venue chosen by Artistar, that is, HOMI; the international fair dedicated to the home and the person, the innovative opportunity for the business of the lifestyle sector. The new great project of Fiera Milano dedicated to the person, to his styles, to his spaces. This choice stems from the desire to guarantee to all participants a real comparison and contact with the sector operators.
The fair represents the best place to forge business relationships and receive important media feedback. All participants in the project will exhibit their creations from 16 to 19 January 2016 and will have the opportunity to meet professional operators from the main reference markets, extremely qualified buyers and leading operators on the international scene.
