Inspired by Travel and Nature
What makes Furmanovich's work so appealing is, for many, her admiration for the natural world and the designs she incorporates into her collections.
Furmanovich told the New York Times in an interview: "The Amazon forest is such a powerful place... We have the colors, the flowers, the birds: a diversity in nature that is unparalleled. It's great to be able to show the best of our country in terms of nature, materials, and craft." She has taken nature to be her muse and incorporates its beauty into all that she creates. This can be seen throughout her work, from the way she uses color to her choice of materials.
It's this combination of a strong design aesthetic with a reverence for nature that makes Silvia Furmanovich's jewelry so special.
One of the things that makes Silvia Furmanovich's jewelry so unique is her use of marquetry. Marquetry is a technique where pieces of hand-cut wood veneer that have been reclaimed, making the process sustainable, are assembled to create patterns and images. This skill is often used in fine furniture making, but Silvia Furmanovich has adapted it for use in her fine jewelry and home collections.
She often combines these meticulous innovations with brightly colored precious stones to create bold, eye-catching designs. This gives her jewelry a very distinctive look that is sure to turn heads.
Using Natural Materials in Jewelry
Another thing that sets Silvia Furmanovich's jewelry apart is her utilization of natural materials. She often uses wood from the Amazonian rainforest in her designs, as well as a variety of precious and semi-precious stones. This gives her jewelry an organic look that is truly unique.
In some of her collections, she uses bamboo and elevates the material to a level of fine art. The result is jewelry that is both beautiful and environmentally sustainable and is one of the countless examples where Furmanovich's worship of the natural world and its materials shine through in high art.
