ARBOR VERTITUR, 2019
The collection of brooches ARBOR VERTITUR (“tree transforming” in Latin) by Latvian jewelry designer Anna Fanigina is made using silver, vintage glass and wood – the Christmas tree that was decorating the designer’s studio last year. The main idea of the collection is transformation, exploration of the life cycle and the Christmas tree shows a great example of it. The day before yesterday it grew in the forest, yesterday it was the main Christmas decoration and today it blossoms with the vivid colors as an art object and piece of jewelry and continues to live its life in a different way.
