The much-anticipated collaboration between Frieze London and PAD Art and Design Fairs was indeed the highlight of October in the realm of jewelry fashion. We at OGI had the most glorious time browsing through the contemporary and exciting collections showcased by modern bijou maestros, including Taffin, Hemmerle, and others.
The showcases were a treasure trove of originality, charm and masterful craftsmanship, and in this article, we will walk you through some of the most glorious collections that inspired our team.
Known for hunting down the rarest gemstones and the most valuable natural materials, Hemmerle is not your average jewelry brand, but in fact, each of its pieces are unique and dramatically exclusive. The jewelry maestros spend years on a single piece, for instance, finding the perfect natural pearls that are similar in texture, size, and radiance. We are greatly inspired by Hemmerle’s close attention to detail and its extravagant pearls, and we adored the natural pearl earrings, dipped in white gold and encrusted with reverse-set diamonds.
Ioanna Souflia’s collaboration with Objet D’Emotion was everything we hoped for: dramatic, intense and incredible. A spectacularly talented young artist, Souflia’s sculptural designs are known for their Greek-inspired classicism, and muted color palettes. Her work for Objet D’Emotion, a brand founded by Valery Demure to celebrate female jewelry designers, was spellbinding with its intricacy. Our favorite piece was undoubtedly the yellow gold chrysoprase earrings, encrusted with diamonds and chalcedony.
A dynamic Brazilian artist, Silvia Furmanovich’s inspiration for her traditional collection for Objet D’Emotion are deeply grounded in her travels across the world and her profound knowledge of cultural jewelry traditions. The artist has spent a great deal of time crafting with the artisans residing in the Amazonian rainforest, and her art radiates the charm of jewelry crafted with precious gemstones and wood marquetry. Furmanovich takes much of her inspiration from the artisans of India’s Udaipur, and her alluring designs also radiate the charm of Japanese hand-painted miniatures, sashes and antique obis.
The showcase by Glenn Spiro at the PAD was utterly magical, and we adored all his latest designs. Our absolute favorites were the dazzling earrings created with the snail shell and diamonds. Spiro’s designs are popular for their natural charm and beauty, and their gentle flair for elegance. Each piece is embellished with a multifaceted ensemble of diamonds, natural shells, and rare gemstones.
