Isabella Blanco, Custom Jewelry

You already know that I love the “jewels with history” of Isabella Blanco, right? Live posting! Are always created with items brought in fairs and antique shops around the world and that’s why they’re so special.
Isa’s work is so cool that it doesn’t stop there. She has a customization service parts which I think rocks! A super idea for giving a remodeled that family item you inherited, but doesn’t know how to use or an ancient piece that needs attention or even some more powerful element to bring life to it.
How does this service? The client takes the workshop the piece you want to transform to make feasibility studies, thinking not only in costs, but also in design, it has to be ergonomic and harmonic, at the same time. Soon after, a budget is submitted and approved by the client.
I’ve bought several things in my travels that turned into beautiful jewelry at the hands of Isabella-silver spoon that became an item in the collection, an Art Nouveau and Art Deco pendants that won pretty stones, perfumer. The list is great! So I had the idea to do a post showing some of the work that she has developed. Separated 3 cases, here we go:
1-the comb turned necklace
In this particular case, it is an art deco celluloid comb, years 1920/1930 that had belonged to the grandmother of the client, but it needed some restoration. In addition, the play was very big, impractical to be used as jewelry.
After analyses and studies, determined the cuts and the combination of the stone. First, I sawed the teeth and the sides of the comb to become more comfortable in the customer’s lap, and chose the lapis lazuli cabochon lapidary, which was in a kind of stoning very popular at the time. In addition, the lapis lazuli was a favorite stone of the client. Whenever I think of a design from an item, I’m looking to use the same types of stoning, metal color among other particularity, so that the final design does not become excessive in a mixture of styles.
Then, along with the Goldsmith, sawed the comb and conclude the parts that needed restoration.
We picked the silver with gold jewelry and mounting current Cartier style, with rectangular ties, combining with the art deco design of the comb.
A point that I always cherish and sets it apart from other designers, is that, while the others just use material from an ancient jewel, melting the piece and not worrying about preserving the history of same, I try to perpetuate the ancient jewel through a contemporary design. I hate melt antique jewelry! And, in almost 99% of cases, you preserve the original piece and the emotional value the item ends.
2 – the grandmother’s cameo
This cameo was my grandmother and I wanted to turn it into something modern and statement. So, I’ve created for myself a maximum paste using geometric beads of lapis lazuli from Afghanistan.
Think about the contrast of angled facets of the accounts with the delicacy of cameo; was super today, huh?
The big challenge was the passing of pendant: then conferred with the Goldsmith, we decided to do a sort of “the cage” to contain the largest square pencil account. For you see that the customization jewelry is much more than “melt metal and reuses it in a new design. Often technical solutions are required.
Being get and put, the pendant can also be used with gold chains or velvet Ribbon. And the paste, can be used alone or with other pendant. Voila!
Case 3-buttons in the décor
The customer had some old buttons of your mother and I would like to do a “bunch”, something to hang on a door handle of your House or decorate a corner of your room.
After a study of bakelite buttons – one of them quite special, with an embossed lizard, probably years 1930/1940 – decided to use volcanic lavas in Brown and silver tone with 18 k Yellow Gold bath for Assembly.
But, with only three buttons, I concluded that the “host” would be poor. So, I added two quartz rutilados and a drop of brushed silver. The mixture of bakelite with quartz resulted in a nice mix for your eyes and gave the modern twist to the buttons.
