Sculptor Blanca Muñoz’s collection (madrid, 1963) in collaboration with Grassy includes various pieces made of gold and precious stones, many of them with previous sculptures as a starting point. For example the “Salomé” like a gold skeleton drawn in the air, with the gaps sometimes occupied by chalcedonies or veined agates that have been carved to adapt to the twisted geometry and allow the passage of light through their milky surface. “Pandora” the choker which looks like a ruff made of yellow gold. The “Marañas” using different coloured golds dotted with minute coloured gems or diamonds that intertwine their links in a game of light and shadow. The artist came up with a series emanating from the gems that caught her interest and which she drew. It is the case of the “Gorguera” choker, where the gold folds over a giant tourmaline and the brooches “Cosmos” and “Nebulosa” and the large “Obispo” rings with unusual gemstones strung on a organic shaped mount. Also the “Tornados” a pendant and a ring using the same principle to embrace two stones, as different as similar: an aquamarine and a blue chalcedony.
