From the Geometria Series
The Helix Pendants are part of the Franchi Geometria jewelry series, characterized by dynamic geometry and a contemporary exploration of the Golden Ratio, a mathematic proportion that infatuated great minds from Euclid to da Vinci, Le Corbusier to Dalí. These handcrafted, one-of-a-kind pendants are inspired by the Fibonacci proportions as seen in triangular and spiral forms, applied to the twisting structure of a helix. Renaissance artists believed that these particular spatial relationships were the hallmark of beauty. Claudio Franchi takes this a step further, proposing the golden ratio as an inherent feature of the spiralling helix of our very genetic material in a form of contemporary humanism. The Helix Pendants are entirely one-of-a-kind, with each infinite form uniquely handcrafted and singular. Each is a statement of contemporary elegance, harmony, and individuality.
