[Jewellery between Art and Design] A collection of five contributions recounting the stages in the history of this artist of jewellery, who mixes and integrates invention and technical ability with an interest in art and design. The written text is illustrated with photographs by Mario Mulas, portraying various celebrities wearing Rivière’s jewellery.
Since starting work as a goldsmith in 1967, James Rivière has developed a very personal style which he has elaborated over the years, sometimes with the collaboration of artistic personalities such as Munari and Veronesi. An expert in classical goldsmith techniques, he delights in using new and unusual materials alongside the precious materials traditionally used by goldsmiths, making use of primary geometric forms and creating jewellery that transmits a sensation of novelty and uniqueness.
