Dear Friends,

Coming September 2014 we are going to launch a new Klimt02 website. The improvements will be implemented in phases.

Since long time ago we have been working on a new Data Base and a new CMS. This new tools are more powerful and allow us to relate more and better the contents published at Klimt02.net, as well as future developments.

In the first phase of the web publication, you will mainly find a new graphic design with a new organization of the information of each item, a new structure for the related contents and a new access to information through a new search engine and a filter tool. We have also created a Sign Up option for users in order to be able to add comments, use whiteboard service, Vote (appreciated) your favorites items, and follow projects you are intersted in.

In the coming phases a working area for members will be added, where you will be able to access and manage information of your pages. A new Newsletter, a new section Jewels, where the connecting node of the related information will be the surfing pieces, a new section Videos and a new way to organize the works of the jewelers grouping the works in series: by year, by concept, by series of work… A new section will be created too where we will show the different professional profiles of people related and around the jewelry scene.

Step by step we will be adding new tools and will announce them at the web and through our newsletters.

Our idea is better information related in the best way and push on the idea of making klimt02.net an international useful network and a platform to connect to the Outsite World.

We are very excited about this and hope you will too.

Interview to Daniela Hedman
Nature is an important influence in my work and it can be seen in my choice of color, material and a sense of spirit that could represent something nordic. At the same time I work with very basic and fundamental themes, and I think I have quite a direct and simple expression that reaches something more universal.

Klimt02 in conversation with Kevin Hughes
Interview filmed on the occasion of the solo exhibition A Fickle Sonance by Kevin Hughes at Klimt02 Gallery in Barcelona in June 2014. Kevin explains us about the exhibition, research and work processes, the use of found objects and importance of the titles on these pieces, how he see the future works to come and why jewellery instead of any other creative discipline.

Interview to Anna Vlahos
I create my pieces with nods to both the natural and historical. I hope for a viewer to get a sense of seeing objects that could come from a newly discovered horde or something equally at home on the forest floor.
Barcelona, Klimt02, 16.07.2014
Interview to Rita Rodner
My way to jewellery was through painting, drawing and photography and my works still reflect the two-dimensional attitude to forms and compositions. I like to show my jewellery pieces together with my other works as they all constitute a consistent statement.

New member of Klimt02
My work has changed since 2010, and this is clearly visible if we observe my practice in the twenty years that preceded this shift. Narrative compositions have been replaced by forms that allude more to the inherent qualities of materials. I am now more interested in representing the materials that buildings are made of rather than narrating what happened inside them.

William Llewellyn Griffiths
New Member of Klimt02.
I am a practicing contemporary jeweller, using modern technologies alongside ancient techniques to tailor my own specific method of making. I am greatly influenced by gothic revival architecture, the grandeur of medieval buildings and the unapologetic opulence of the rococo movement.
Selda Okutan
New Member of Klimt02.
Making Jewellery is passion for me and I call my designs, sculptural jewel with tiny figures. Every collection I created has a subject and every single item has a story of own.
Iliana Tosheva
As an artist and creator I dislike staying the same size and what has permanently inspired me over the years has always been a fleeting image of a less traditional shape, texture or colour that will take my breath away on a journey ‘back to nature’ (...).

Launch of the new website http://manuganda.it

In 2004 I decided to make my ideas physical and real.
Thus was born the project MANUGANDA, created by me, Manuela Gandini. A project focused on the creation of contemporary jewelery, that they were not just a surprise for anniversary, but that would express my vision of what these creations can be.
During these 10 years MANUGANDA has grown with me. We have learned, experienced, done and correct errors, worked hard,
