Ornamentum
Design Miami/ 2012

Founded in 2002, Ornamentum exhibits a dynamic collection of contemporary jewelry as well as related objects and artworks. Ornamentum hosts numerous exhibitions yearly in their gallery space -one of the world’s largest - dedicated specifically to contemporary jewelry-artworks, where featured designer-artists display their work in conceptual installations. Celebrating 10 years this past summer, Ornamentum is well-established as a major force for introducing this exciting medium to new audiences, working to help build many of the world’s most significant public and private collections of contemporary jewelry and playing a pivotal role in numerous acquisitions of important works by key museums. For the occasion of Ornamentum's 5th presentation at Design Miami/, a salient collection of works will be introduced to this exclusive audience, including a Design Miami/ premiere of Swiss designer Johanna Dahm's project "William Tell's Shot"- a presentation of rings created by shooting through silver and gold bars or coins with a machine gun. The exhibition also features a strong group of new and signature works, accompanied by a catalog created for this occasion, by German jeweler Gerd Rothmann, known for creating highly-personalized works using the imprints of the finger or other body parts, often taken from the wearer or his/her loved ones
