Exclusive jewellery academy with artist and goldsmith Patrik Muff
Archaic handicraft, cool designs and lots of creativity: Around Pentecost, visitors of the Maldivian island Amilla Fushi will be able to create their own personal piece of jewellery
Sun, beach and jewellery: what a wonderful combination! From 19th to 31st of May, guests of the luxury island Amilla Fushi can create their own special vacation memory together with the well-known jewellery designer Patrik Muff. Jewels with the desired MUFF-stamp stand for extraordinary art of goldsmithing, passion for the handcraft and baroque ornamentation with a bit of punk and pomp. The creative mind behind all this is the swiss-born artist Patrik Muff who will conduct an extraordinary luxury academy for the first time at the island of one´s dreams Amilla Fushi. He also designed an exclusive signature piece which reflects the uniqueness of this exceptional place. The signature piece can only be ordered at Patrik Muff. The creative island timeout including the jewellery academy with Patrik Muff can be booked via the tour operator art of travel.
Patrik Muff draws his inspiration by observing people and nature, especially when travelling. As part of the jewellery academy at Amilla Fushi, he wants to share new perspectives and introduces his participants into a world of boundless possibilities. In conformity with nature Patrik Muff decided to use the ancient technique of molding with sepia. Therefore, the backbones of an octopus which is a natural product often found at the beaches of the Indian Ocean, are used as a negative form. The shell is extremely hard but the inside is soft, so that little shapes and objects can be dented and carved into the sepia. After adding sprues into the negative form both halves of the sepia are sealed and the hollow space in-between will be filled with liquid metal. The structure of the sepia bone then leaves a significant surface structure on the jewellery piece. The outcome is unique chain pendants with beautiful ocean motifs.
