Israel Roca

Textile jewelry designer Israel Roca is simply genius. His pieces are pure poetry. His aesthetic and drive is one of pure artistry and not motivated by monetary incentives. Cited from this piece
by Catherine Skerbic, Roca describes his elegant Medusa line :

"Combining applications such as buttons from the ’30s, ’40s and ’50s, and ornaments from 20th century hats, each piece in the limited-edition collection is unique. A large proportion of the materials were discovered on trips around the world, where he collected details and integrated them in a new structure that gave each piece its own story. He is also inspired by other passions of his: the cinema, 70s Italian, French and American music. Having spent his childhood in a city by the water, the infusion of the sea and what lies within is apparent in the Medusa collection – in particular, jellyfish."

Israel even cited an Albert Camus quote to describe his process, here

"As usual I finish the day before the sea, sumptuous this evening beneath the moon, which writes Arab symbols with phosphorescent streaks on the slow swells. There is no end to the sky and the waters. How well they accompany sadness!''

Beautiful and Inspiring. Love!

These spoke to the writer in me. Victoria Contreras uses quotes by famous authors to make her typographical necklaces. Poetry around my neck. How could I say no?
