Unique and pow­er­ful jew­elry in­spired by hyp­no­tiz­ing bal­let pieces of the well-known Brazil­ian dance group

The Jerusalem Post Magazine - - FOOD -

Grupo Corpo (Grupo = Group, Corpo = Body) has been fa­mous around the world for its fas­ci­nat­ing dance seg­ments in­spired by the di­verse Brazil­ian roots of the group, tra­di­tional as­pects of clas­si­cal bal­let and mod­ern dance style. As a con­tin­u­a­tion of the orig­i­nal and beloved col­lec­tion that was launched in 2010, the cre­ative team of HStern ex­plored the chore­og­ra­phy of the dance com­pany and cre­ated four new lines in­spired by the pow­er­ful move­ments of the dancers and the en­chant­ing scenery that adorns the stage dur­ing the dance. The col­lec­tion ex­poses a wide range of rings, earrings and bracelets made from yel­low gold, Noble Gold and 18kt rose gold with dif­fer­ent styles and de­signs, all of which sim­u­late move­ment and some are even as Éex­i­ble as the move­ment of the dance.


The aes­thet­ics of sharp con­trasts of the bal­let Breu, mean­ing pitch dark, have been trans­lated into jew­els of bold three-di­men­sional forms. Com­posed of a twisted web of yel­low gold with sin­u­ous move­ments and open spa­ces, re­fer­ring to the marked play of con­trast be­tween black and white, light and shadow, the scenery and geo­met­ric cos­tume de­sign op­posed to the curves of the dancer’s bod­ies.


Sus­pended ropes all around the stage com­poses the vis­ually in­trigu­ing sce­nario of the Triz bal­let in­tro­duced in 2013. The in­spir­ing scene gave rise to jew­els formed by a con­tin­u­ous strand of 18kt Noble Gold – the ex­clu­sive HStern cham­pagne color al­loy. Strands of Noble Gold in­ter­twined with strands of co­gnac di­a­monds in­spired by the com­ings and go­ings of the dancers on stage; re­sem­bling the rope cur­tain of the scene where the bod­ies slide.


This solemn bal­let, cre­ated in 2015 to cel­e­brate the 40th an­niver­sary of Grupo Corpo, was an in­spi­ra­tion for the cre­ation of jew­els that com­bine bril­liant blades of Noble Gold with oth­ers of rose gold, in ref­er­ence to the sump­tu­ous red vel­vet cur­tains and leo­tards that dress the the­ater and the dancers. The two tones of gold re­fer to the beau­ti­ful duets of the bal­let. The sculp­tural com­po­si­tion of over­lap­ping par­al­lel blades cre­ates an im­pres­sive mir­rored op­ti­cal ef­fect.


ressed in white from start to Ènish, dancers move across the milky linoleum against the back­drop panel that grad­u­ally re­veals the peaks and val­leys of a struc­ture that re­sem­bles a gi­ant glacier. The arid­ity of the eerily white land­scape and the mys­te­ri­ous at­mos­phere of this chore­og­ra­phy of Grupo Corpo in­spired this line of amaz­ing jew­els made of Noble Gold and rock crys­tal. The facets of the rock crys­tal, spe­cially de­vel­oped for the col­lec­tion, cre­ate graphic shapes with dis­placed and dis­or­dered axes, like the nat­u­ral for­ma­tion of an ice­berg.
