Lynn Wyatt’s Dazzling Venice Connection

How an Italian Jewelry Designer Wooed the World

BY // 09.14.16

How does an art project for the Guggenheim Foundation in Venice find its way to Lynn Wyatt’s nape? By way of artist turned avant-garde jewelry designer Grazia Fortuna Ward.

The Italian-born artist, who studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice, creates dimensional environmental works for studios and private collectors, and collaborates with architects on settings and locations worldwide. But her second venture — a collection of earrings and necklaces she calls GFW — is perhaps her most expressive.

Her oeuvre, 10 collections in, exists precariously at the crossroads between painting and sculpture, crafted of a mixture of porcelain and marble powders, 24K gold leaf and resin. Her clients are her canvases — truly constructivism at its finest.

$300 to $4,000, at Sloan/Hall.
