We all know already that you can discover an excellent collection of antique jewellery at the Garden of Adin. Now, you can also witness how everyone there goes fully bananas for this modern 18K yellow gold art piece by Belgian jewellery artist Demaret (1924-2013).
Since the 1960's, Fernand Demaret is considered a pioneer in modern jewellery art and more importantly in commercialising it. By using the lost wax technique, he was able to combine different elements into an abstraction while still creating a baroque style. True to the Demaret signature, this artistic composition is subtly touched up with two brilliant cut diamonds and a baroque pearl. And so every seemingly mechanical component and organic abstraction becomes more than a work of art: it truly becomes part of a jewel.
Furthermore, this brooch is rather of architectural dimensions beyond regular proportions, even for a Demaret. Even the more reason why this large piece of art jewellery ticks all boxes of being part of the jewellery world as well as the art world. Wouldn't you go bananas over this?

Extra information: Fernand Demaret - Fernand Demaret (Namur, Belgium 1924-2013), His grandfather was a watch maker and his father jeweler. His ambition was to resume the job of his grandfather watchmaker until one day in 1954 when he met Madame Liliane Nathalie Mosselmans. She asked her best friend André Lami to create contemporary jewellery which inspired Fernand Demaret to turn to his style. His first shop (1963) was first located rue du Bailli 10, Brussels and was moved in the 70's the prestigues Avenue Louise 31 in Brussels until its closure in 1992.
With his wife Liliane and many colleagues like Claude Wezelle, Bernard Francois, Jean Pierre Laloux and others created the jewels in the for him so specific style. After 1992 when the store closed, they continued in his showroom located rue Bosquet 31 a 1160 Brussels until his death in 2013. (From: www.bijoutierdemaret.be)
