Microphilia

These are images of some of the beautiful work by Carina Chitsaz Shoshtary and Annamaria Leiste in their exhibition ‘Microphilia’, a reference to the micro world they both work in, spending hours working on tiny elements which make up their jewellery. Annamaria’s work is made from fish scales amongst other materials, strung upon delicate gold and blackened silver chain. I find her the pieces  have a fragile, ethereal beauty. Carina’s work is made from pieces of wood that she finds close to her home, she covers these in tiny pieces of graffiti, a signiature material she has been working with for some time. It was a real pleasure for me to get a chance to work so closely with Carina’s jewellery, not only are they beautiful shapes with exciting colours, they are also incredibly tactile. I had admired and coveted Carina’s jewellery for some time and seeing them up close made me love them even more.
