Carrera y Carrera has created two extraordinary pieces inspired by the sinuous snake.  Basel 2013.

2013, the Year of the Snake, brings new designs full of creativity and character.  The powerful symbolism and sinuous lines of this animal endow these spectacular pieces with a strong personality made for lovers of a goldsmith’s art.  Each year, Carrera y Carrera adds exceptional new pieces to its successful Bestiario Collection, a tribute to the sculptural origins of the international Spanish jewelry brand.

The Serpiente (Snake) bracelet is born of the duality symbolic of this animal that leaves no one indifferent, an allegory of the confrontation of opposing feelings – the worldly and the mundane, the sacred and the profane.  When viewed in detail, this piece tells a different story than at first glance.  The harmony of the shapes transforms into a battle between two completely different snakes.  A line of white diamonds runs along the body of one snake, while its rival’s back is covered with brown diamonds that serve to distinguish the two struggling bodies.  Hidden inside both snakes and directly in contact with the wearer’s skin are two rubies placed at heart level, symbolizing the animals’ strength and fortitude.

This spectacular piece of great technical complexity is crafted from more than thirty individual components.  The six months of intensive work due to its size, the required craftsmanship, and the unparalleled quality of the details have yielded this singular accessory for exceptional occasions.

The life-like Serpiente (Snake) ring in yellow gold with green quartz is another example of the company’s expertise.  The snake’s position and perspective capture the instant just before attack, filling this jewel of magnificent realism with energy and power.

The Bestiario Collection from Carrera y Carrera comes to life once again with these two new dynamic and unique pieces.  The matte-gloss finish of the gold, characteristic of the company, endows these two mini-sculptures with an exceptional realism that is the fruit of the careful attention to small detail and meticulous carving of the master goldsmiths.
