The acceleration of technological, social and political changes and developments and their direct or indirect consequences on the environment have led to the emergence of a questioning in art about the place of man in the world surrounding him. Contemporary art jewelry, especially narrative, does not escape this trend, even though the forms it takes to seize it are often
radically different, as illustrated by these these three authors: Chiara Scarpitti, Silvia Walz and Claire Lavendhomme. "Anthropocene is a term invented in the eighties by the biologist Eugene Stoermer, and later adopted by the Nobel Prize winning chemist P. Crutzen in the book "Welcome to the Anthropocene". Anthropocene is a new post-holocene geological time interval - a period characterized by the pervasive impact of human activities on the earth. This word comes from the greek "anthropos", which means man, and "olocene" used for the geological current era, in order to indicate a new period where mankind transforms in an irreversible way the physical, chemical and biological natural lanscape and ground. This jewelry collection leads to a reflection on this critical situation, through the creation of little devices of thought to wear. By the mixing of different techniques - both handcrafted and digital -, different materials - highly technological and precious -, each piece represent a different digital collage made by the author, with a relational research of extinct plants, flowers and endagered landscapes.
