The goldsmith who stopped at Eboli

  • • Rosmundo created the figurative honeycomb technique
  • • He is inspired by the beauty that surrounds him
  • • He seeks to convey emotions in his work

“I chose this profession,” says Rosmundo Giarletta, “because I think it is really special and unique to give shape and life to our emotions and feelings through the most noble and ancient of metals: gold. When it is expertly shaped by the goldsmith, gold spans the centuries, symbolising the culture and traditions of ancient civilisations.” The figurative honeycomb technique is Rosmundo’s invention and the signature ingredient of his creations. Now handed down to his sons Francesco and Giuseppe, this unique technique consists of a mysteriously intricate game of spaces and shadows, matt patches versus shiny ones, through which Rosmundo expresses the emotions and the history of his region and his clients.

Al-Noor

On the front of the piece, man’s paths to Paradise, where the centre of light dwells, are shown in the glistening Rosmundo honeycomb technique. The arcs on the top of the medallion draw together the human and the divine, while the eight gates on the pendant suggest the cosmic order around the central octagon itself a symbol of fire and of the divine light. The seven niches that surround the pendant represent the seven prophets of Islam.
