Stop by Eve J. Alfille Gallery & Studio to view "Sacred Geometries", Eve's new exhibit featuring custom made jewelry.
Eve, a French-born artist, archeologist and gem expert has been designing unique jewelry for over 40 years. Her new series draws inspiration from age-old shapes and beliefs dating back to prehistoric times. Influenced by the "Heavenly Bodies" exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which examined fashion's engagement with the traditional practices of Catholicism, Eve has explored that idea much further with shapes and traditions of the Celtic World, Islam, Japan, of medieval alchemy and magic as well as Stone Age cultures. “Geometry’s use is to describe the world. When we feel awe at nature and the Creation, geometry becomes sacred. “States Eve as she describes her work.
She playfully intertwines basic circles, squares and triangles with sapphires, diamonds, garnets and rubies, creating at once modern and ancient jewels that would not be out of place in a ‘Game of Thrones’ universe. “What I design is wearable art, but I want each piece to tell a story, and if you see yourself in that story, it makes me immensely happy” says Alfillé.
Co-sponsored by Chicago Magazine, this event features a raffle for a Chopping Block Gift Basket valued at $200 and an Eve Alfillé “Sacred Geometries” necklace.
