Milan, March 22, 2017_The contemporary jewel is on show. From March 22 to March 28, 2017, the sixth edition of Ridefinire the Jewel host to the Milan Space Center in Via Savona 99 will be presented. 41 unveiled jewels, designed by Italian and foreign artists, will be presented. Event that received the patronage of City Hall 6 of the Municipality of Milan and of the Municipality of Casalmaggiore.


Redefining the Jewel born in 2010 from an idea by curator Sonia Patrizia Catena over the years has become a point of reference in the material experimentation on the jewel of art. An interesting showcase for artists and designers, an itinerant project that promotes exclusive creations and selected by the jury and partners for: adherence to the theme, research, innovation and originality of ideas and executives. Jewelry between them is very different for materials used, but combined with a single theme: books, tales and poems. These jewelery become precious words, small books of wearable artists, fragments revealing the stylistic figure of each artist, which expresses an intimate and free moment here in the encounter with the text, where each phrase and direction becomes tangible matter that enchants and marvels .


A project that involved more than 2,000 creative artists, designers and goldsmiths who were able to push their research beyond the usual boundaries, demonstrating how the value of a material is in the ability to transfigure an idea Make it wearable.

In these years Renewing the Jewel has intercepted and at the same time stimulated the creative ferment of contemporary jewel, creating a synergic and continuous movement. The event, linked to an annual competition, aims to enhance and promote a new jewel, giving voice to various stylistic and material research. A point of reference and meeting for the same artists and designers who, over the years, thanks to the competition, made a net of dialogue and confrontation.



I have always felt the need to create from what already exists.

In the common objects that surround us, I see forms in alternative shapes and uses.

These objects want me to communicate something and I do nothing but stop listening.

I choose among the most suitable ones, both for materiality and ductility, for my creative purposes, materially altering them by exploiting their plastic characteristics and relocating them to totally different contexts from which they belonged, canceling their origins.

The book The Expanded Mind of Rupert Sheldrake inspired my Amoeba jewelry collection.

The concept proposed by Sheldrake in the book is that the minds extend beyond the body through intentions and metaphorically choose the Ameba or Amoeba, a unicellular organism that, like the mind, sends projections into the surrounding environment.

I see the jewel as an extension of the mind; Not a static object aimed at itself but alive, organic as a projection of the essence of the person who realizes it, the spirit of the wearer and able in turn to transmit projections to those who observe it.

A symbiotic exchange between subjects and object, a telepathic language between minds and matter, in which the mind can subject the matter to vibrate and make known its soul, in which the mind through matter can express its soul in which mind And matter can change shape just as the Amoeba and a poor object become precious thanks to the extended mind.

Symbiotic Necklace Simona Girelli selected for the exhibition tribute to Frida Kahlo - Association GioielloDentro.




Frida Kahlo and the reflexes of his soul .... the symbiotic and inseparable relationship with its reflection, with the pain and passion.


Materials: silk Chiffon - glass


I wanted to interpret the importance that has the reflex to Frida Kahlo, that reflection through which he saw his own image; reflection of that light from the depths of his soul emerged each time the fate forced her to shop.

Reflections projected, guided and controlled by a strong soul that, opposing vigorously, manages to free the mind and hand of the body that the cruel fate rendered inert.

broken lines but the dynamics are his body and his rebellious spirit, a dense tangle of twisting and angular lines interpret metaphorically the "prison" pinching her body.

With red, recurring color in his paintings, I wanted to represent the passion that Frida had for herself, for life and for everything he undertook ..... a hymn to joy and his insatiable desire to exist and to shouting the world its existence, but also his courage to live, to love, to shop and, through suffering and pain, to tell, without filters, if not that of art, what he saw.

Recycling project - The Table of the Future



The proposed project is the personal interpretation of Simona Girelli of The Table of the Future.

An optimistic vision of a future in which, now fully aware of the richness of our land, we know how to exploit it and bring it to the table in a healthy way and without waste.

A future in which man knows the Nature and, with full respect, exploit and maintains a perfect balance in its entirety (WATER, AIR, EARTH and FIRE), allowing it to limit the environmental and feed the entire population world.

A future where we are able to see beyond the nature and shape of objects, thanks to constant information and careful education which comes from the past, we know how to take advantage of the inorganic waste and make them part of a life cycle always in continuous renewal.

In "House of Reuse", La Tavola del Futuro remains tied to the traditions remains as a foundation of our daily lives; a table that does not disperse in the technological evolutional technological, leaving contaminate from minimalism to the lines, but not the contents. A informal table but super organized and dynamic in which, through careful recycling, shows the life cycle of objects (containers for the food, means to spread the light and furniture).

Communication between the guests is conceptually expressed through gestures.


The balance between the elements, WATER, AIR, EARTH and FIRE, defines conceptually installation.


EARTH: dummy (recycled materials) used as support center of the table, to represent our Mother Earth and Man, the protagonist of his future.

WATER: the "sculpture" to effect "cascade", which is organized around the central support, is the result of the merger and assemblage of transparent plastic bottles recycled.

FIRE: fire allowed to mold the material and change its properties, through the chemical reaction of the merger.



The objects that decorate the table are Etamina, fabric chosen for its close relationship with the kitchen (dish towel to filter soups, sauces or funds), combined with recycled plastic.



Hands of mannequins and displays for jewelery (recycled material), due to different positions, are the guests, through gestures, they shall express the dialogue.

The Silk, thanks to its chemical characteristics, is used for biomedical applications.

Recent studies are promising, in fact, in the use, in the near future, a silk protein as a biomaterial for the repair of damaged tissues of the human body.

In the futuristic vision of Simona Girelli this extreme use of alternative materials has long applied.

Through the Silk wanted to represent conceptually the human anatomy.
