Chloe Valorso is a Spirit Artist Jeweller
In the Witching hours of the 21st century, Chloe is investigating our reality, forging the unreal from fragments of the real.
Using jewellery as a shamanic language, she collages organic/manmade, seen/imagined, raw materials with contemporary digital associations. Her pieces are amulets, activated when worn, empowering the wearer through their compelling symbolic qualities and deep sense of history – an essential component in this innovative interpretation of mythology. Her pieces encourage a contemplative and spiritual approach to our environment. She aims to inspire a reconnection to the self, each other and nature. Her work is set in liminality.
