Ongoing research and experimentation with unusual materials are the main drivers of her original plans; the study of the shape and the obsessive attention to detail are the context in which it moves her modus operandi.

 

Materiality, three-dimensionality and dynamism are the characteristics that substantially define her work; alteration, alternative use and recycling, the means it uses to achieve them.

 

Her very personal contemporary jewelry are born by the unusual combination of unique components, obtained by the alteration of everyday plastic objects (or use of industrial scrap metal, resin and pvc) and traditional materials such as silk and glass .

The fabrics, which she treated and shaped, become wearable textile sculptures and objects, clay to be molded.

 

In addition to pass easily from one material to another, Simona Girelli manages to look so different objects and aspects of everyday materials, using them in an alternative way.

This ability results in a unique and novel starring the plastic wrap.

Fabrics and laces film, obtained by a special innovative technique she conceived, become clothes "scultpture" silky texture and flowing lines; dense interweaving of film, they are made its fashion accessories, evoking old lace but conceal their true origin.
