TEFAF Online opens tomorrow and Didier and I will be taking part in Meet the Experts Live on Thursday 9th September at 5pm Uk time, 6pm European time and 12pm New York time.

“Discover wearable art with Didier Ltd” will be a conversation with Lin Jamison of GemX discussing artists’ jewellery in general but with a focus on the three jewels that are our TEFAF online presentation: by Arnaldo Pomodoro, Lucio Fontana, and Claude Lalanne, all of which were produced by the great facilitator and editor of artists’s jewels GianCarlo Montebello.

The talk is open to everyone and is free to join. There will be time for questions at the end, so please invite friends, log on, listen, and participate.

And why the “Anti-Sofia” so called?
According to GianCarlo Montebello, Sophia Loren and Carlo Ponti had behaved arrogantly while visiting Lucio Fontana in his studio, so the great artist decided to design a necklace that Sophia would never be able to wear due to her famous expansive bosom.

The original drawing is in the @luciofontanafoundation and the finished piece shows the delicate hand of GianCarlo Montebello. Only eight gold examples were made of this truly iconic artist jewel.

The Anti-Sofia necklace was designed by Lucio Fontana and produced by GianCarlo Montebello for GEM Montebello, Milan, model LF/1, in 1967 in two editions. The first in silver was to be to made in an edition of 200 proposed pieces, only six were made, and of the gold edition of 30, only eight were made.

The rod pendant suspended from a torque is decorated with 51 evenly-spaced drilled holes. The elegant construction means that the rod can accommodate the curve of the collar bone away from the torque around the neck as well as enabling it to be folded back in order to lie flat in its fitted red felt packaging.

The glorious Elizabeth Taylor - look closely and you can see one of the bracelets she is wearing is one with a pair of gold acrobats designed by the British sculptor Michael Ayrton who would have turned 100 today. This bracelet was intended to be included in the 1961 Goldsmith’s Hall exhibition but the glamorous Dame got there first. It was cast by Alan Davie with another example with subtle variations cast ten years later (1972). We are fortunate in having sold the first, but currently have the second in stock as well as the heavy bronze hinged bangle that dates from 1959 - acrobats bring a recurring theme in his art by a man who suffered terribly from arthritis.

Celebrating Lucio Fontana’s birthday with some holes - next year it will be with slashes.

This beach dress with a revolutionary band of holes cut below the breast was exhibited in L’Antagonismes II. L’Objet in Le Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris, in 1962 together with three unique gold jewels that had been executed in the Milanese studio of Arnaldo and Gio Pomodoro.

The bracelet “Concetto Spaziale” and the necklace “Anti-Sofia” were produced in a proposed edition of 200 in chrome-plated silver by GEM Montebello. On the master’s death production stopped but his widow agreed for 30 then to be produced in gold but again only a few of these editions were ever made.

Today marks what would have been the Italian artist Franco Cannilla’s 110th birthday. Born in Caltagirone, Sicily, he moved to Rome where he created jewels and sculptural silver works for both Mario Masenza and later for the Fumanti Brothers. This magnificent hinged bangle has two heads, one bearded, decorated with enamel and set with diamond eyes, and further set with emeralds, sapphires, rubies and amber. From the collection of the visionary gallerist Graziella Folchini Grassetto in Padua and now available #forsale

And if you want to show that there is no limit in showing love for your Valentine may we suggest this gold, ruby and diamond pendant brooch designed by the great man himself Salvador Dali in 1953. We know of two other examples, both of which have faceted rubies, but this example appears unique in having c. 180 cabochon rubies. The heart is asymmetrical with a honeycomb lattice in the centre highlighted with 13 diamonds. It is known as the honeycomb heart because ‘there is a little bit of sweetness in the heart of every woman’.

You could also spell out your love for your beloved with an iconic LOVE ring designed by Robert Indiana in 1968. The originals were made in 18ct gold but this ring, made in gilt metal, was designed for Charles Revson’s Ultimate II perfume as a purchase with purchase - buy some perfume for $5, then this ring could be yours for $4.50 a contemporary advert with Revson’s then wife Lauren Hutton proclaims - it costs a little more now though. The brown velvet ring box and brown outer cardboard box with gold lettering couldn’t be more late 1960s.

Two abstract sculptural jewels formed from hollow cast sections to celebrate the 85th birthday today of the French Sculptress Parvine Curie. Made in sterling silver the earrings, which can stand like miniature sculptures, have clip fittings and are the artist’s proof. The pendant is formed from three sections and is the no. 1 from an edition of eight produced by La Monnaie de Paris in the 1980s.

Possibly my favourite piece in our virtual gallery @thewintershownyc and fit for a queen is this gold torque by the Swedish goldsmith Gunnar Cyrén with a friendly leopard with sapphire eyes extending his front right paw to caress the décolleté of the wearer.

This is one of three unique versions - the King of Sweden purchased one with a silver tiger with gold stripes as a Christmas present to Queen Silvia in 1989. Cyrén only made a handful of jewels and this is a beauty. He was awarded the Lunning Prize in 1966 and the Prins Eugen meadaljen in 1988.
