Elisabetta Dupré makes use of colour contrasts in her jewellery by utilizing the warm colour of fine gold as opposed to dark, oxidized silver. These are the materials that she mostly enjoys using when making jewellery. The shapes are usually geometrical and quite severe, although she has recently incorporated free forms and white silver into her pieces, breaking up the severity. Her part Germanic family background and jewellery formation comes through in her pieces. It can be perceived in the meticulousness of her work, in a pleasant repetition of forms and patterns, texture and finish. The orderly recurrence of the patterns is interrupted by a spontaneity in the detail conferred to the pieces. Every single element in her work is carried out with great care, every minute feature becomes significant.
