Having grown up in South Tyrol, Gabi Veit creates jewelry that celebrates the rough and jagged shapes and outlines of her home country’s rocks and mountains. “Knott’n, Brock‘n, Stoan – my dialect has many words for the stone that forms the mountain, “ she says in a poetical text. And her jewelry always features stones in different forms. Some of her rings, for example, have been set with garnets in the rough from South Tyrol. For some time now, this artist from Bolzano has also been passionately engaged with spoons. Her unique pieces composed of bowl and handle surprise the beholder with unusual shapes borrowed from plant life. Her “Vices and Spoons” set picks up on an old theme in cultural history: each of these pieces represents one of the seven deadly sins.
