Milan, June 10th 2015
Artistar Jewels, is a project launched by Artistar.it that was created with the aim to offer designers and contemporary jewelry artists, the opportunity to get a widespread promotion of their pieces. The intent is to expand professional connections creating real media and commercial contacts. In the two previous editions more than 200 designers, coming from the four continents took part in the project, with their 500 creations and were the key players of the two international publications and the exhibitions organized in the centre of Milan.
The initiative is open to designers of contemporary jewelry, goldsmith and artists of wearable sculptures. The jewels that will be selected will include unique pieces and small series made with the aid of precious metals and semiprecious stones, but also more unusual materials derived from recycled elements of daily use.
All proposals should stand out for their originality, material and aesthetic innovation, consistency between the project and its realization and emotional impact of the work.
Also this year the project has been conceived in the same way that was so successful in previous years; artists from different continents will take part in the project. The selected jewels will be included in an international publication, published by Logo Fausto Lupetti Editore with contents both in Italian and in English. The book will be distributed in all Italian bookshops and in the major European capitals ones. Moreover its digital version will reach 5,000 professionals in the sector worldwide: concept stores, fashion boutiques, purchasing groups, importers - buyers, designers - architects, online stores, luxury hotels, spa and thalasso resorts.

The past two years of Artistar Jewels meant the world to me. The 2018 edition was the primary reason that I made my brand official. I had been designing and creating for many years but mostly as a student. My confidence in my work wasn’t all that high but when you all took notice, it made me begin to take what I do seriously. It was a huge learning experience: I came home with a new mission to step up my game and I feel like I did just that. My confidence in my art continues to grow thanks to this amazing project.
Describing Artistar Jewels in three words? Audacious, professional and ambitious. Visibility is an important component, especially for those like me who come from "solo" projects. The opportunity to be part of this project and the possibility of being published in a contemporary jewelry book together with other talented artists from all over the world was really exciting and rewarding, especially after much work spent growing and establishing myself as an artist.
The professionalism, genuine care, devotion and distinctive selection of the magniﬁcent diversity of work distinguish Artistar Jewels. It is an honor and privilege to exhibit with them. All of the work in the 2019 edition was extremely fascinating. The quality and diversity of materials, styles and execution of the art was astounding. I look forward to Milano Jewelry Week. Milano is a global center for art and design and a perfect place for this event. The presence of artistar jewels will greatly enhance its stellar success.
