Alexander McQueen Atomflower Skull Brooches Ottone
  • Aurelie Dellasanta The last flight brooch
    boticca.com
    In an embroidery shop in India I found plenty of these antique Air force army emblems. I decided to transform them into the shape of a skull with wings by adding eyes made of two garnets in the middle of the parachute. The emblem's setting and the brooch system are in silver. Size: W5,5 × H2 x L1 cm. During my stay in India in 2008, I worked with indian embroiders. In India, handmade embroidery is currently used to realise badges and emblems. First, I recycled old embroideries that I found in the workshop. Then I designed new patterns. My desire is to use this ancient handmade work, which has almost disappeared in the West and was replaced by factories, in order to give it a new value and update it.Most of the time, I chose images which denounce the madness of our modern society, but was also inspired by symbols of India.

  • Aurelie Dellasanta The Super Hero brooch
    boticca.com
    This brooch refers to characters with super powers invented in popular science-fiction. The fact that this Super Hero is made of bones questions on the ephemeral and illusory aspect of life and beliefs about our timelessness. Each bone of the skeleton and the skull are hand-made in silver and are jointed with rings so they can move. The outfits are made of an aluminium black enamelled armour. The mask is in black painted silver. This piece is made with a brooch pin, closed with a pin protector in silver. Size: 8,5 × 4 × 1 cm. After several trips to India, I was really impressed by the omnipresence of death in this culture. This society accepts death like a natural process; it is perceived as part of humanity’s destiny, as a life’s cycle. Destruction, degradation is present everywhere and in every mind in daily life. During my contemplation of cremations, I realised that we are but small things on earth: only bones and ashes.
