Zaha Hadid Silene Bracelet, 2014 18kt white gold with white diamonds bracelet 11 cm edition of 12 signed and numbered   Zaha Hadid created the Silene series in collaboration with The House of Aziz and Walid Mouzannar. The Mouzannar family has been creating jewellery since the 18th century, and they continue their tradition of crafting remarkable pieces with the Silene series.

An intricate web gently envelops the pristine white gold cuff resulting in a delicate piece that explores the evolution of organic geometries and patterns. Inlaid with diamonds that float between the fluid forms to accentuate its composition, Silene orchestrates an ever-changing play of refraction and reflection that conveys its formal complexity.

Sophie Whettnall Bracelet, 2019 18kt satin yellow gold bracelet 5 cm edition of 6 signed and numbered   ‘I had never designed wearable art before, nor had the idea of doing it ever crossed my mind. But when a friend asked if I’d be interested, I immediately said yes. My points of reference were very personal: I wanted to design something that I could see myself wearing, and something that would have a continuity with my work as an artist. That meant that there would have to be holes; recently, I have been particularly fascinated by the texture created through drilling. And there would have to be folds or curves, because they are elegant and mysterious: what’s on the other side? These two considerations led me to think of the bracelet and ring: flat surfaces that would become textured through drilling and voluminous through folding. Surprisingly, pretty much the first sketches I made felt right, and I resisted every impulse to tinker with them.’ – Sophie Whettnall

Paolo Canevari Piovra (Octopus), 2019 oxidised silver and cultured pearls bracelet 10.2 x 7 cm made bespoke edition of 10 signed and numbered   The Octopus, which elegantly wraps around the wrist of the wearer, symbolises various facets of power. The seductive power of the eroticism in Japan, the omnipresent power of the mafia in Italy, and in Hollywood, the enigmatic creature of the ocean symbolises the uncanny power of the criminal and terrorist organisation Spectre in the famous Bond movies. The bracelet invites its wearer to reflect on the complex interconnectedness of seduction, danger and authority, as the eight-armed animal once inspired the creation of the gorgon Medusa’s head, in Ancient Greek mythology.

Comet Cuff

Liliane Lijn Comet cuff, 2008 Silver sulphur electro-formed cuff Edition of 8 + 2AP Signed and Numbered   Evocative of her visual abstractions and material manipulations, Lijn’s concept of the primal earth are finely tuned with the geological sciences, paralleling these raw materials with cosmic elements such as meteors and comets. With her cuffs, they  resemble the same characteristics of the highly volatile liquid magma that keeps the planet alive and constantly rotating. This same magma that reaches the surface from volcanic eruptions, maintains the cycle of life and death, are drawn into continuous momentum of renewal and vitality that Lijn echoes in her work. The way these cuffs so fittingly encase the wearer’s wrist engages in a very personal dialogue with Lijn’s motifs of the primal earth. In a very personal, meditative approach with these pieces, Lijn begins her pieces by moulding a clump of very hot wax around her wrist to create such cuffs. The high temperature, although stung her skin, the malleable nature of the wax manipulated the mass to resemble the magma of the earth. As technology has allowed her to work with a diverse range of materials in her sculptural work; instead of cast metal, electro-forming […]
