We had a chance to talk to Luna Scamuzzi of Lucifer Vir Honestus about what drives her jewelry creation. She’s an incredible woman. Formerly an architect, she brings a shape-and-structure driven eye to her work, but has dispensed totally with the strict rules of architecture and allowed herself to explore the boundaries of jewelry freely and without many of the aesthetic constraints of her contemporaries. She’s like an Alice in Wonderland. Luna – whose name itself grounds her to natural forces – is inspired completely by nature, looking to the stones she’s working with to lead her to their best possible presentation. She follows her instincts and the deep origins of her designs is reflected in her work.

Sometimes you fall in love with something and just can’t shake it – which is what happened to me with these splendid earrings.

I’ve been waiting for this earrings while they’ve traveled all around the world with their designer, and I’ll finally receive them in January. [ Materials: Rose & black gold aquamarine]

Since I was so enchanted, I figured I would ask Federica Rettore where she got the inspiration for these, but her answer intrigued me even further! “Eleganza e leggerezza  ispirati alle onde che si rifrangono sulla battigia e portano tesori in superficie dalle profondità del mare.” – I started to translate this into English but realized how difficult it would be to translate such poetry.

The Italian language definitely has its “fascino” (charm), and it’s no wonder that the language has its share of admirers. But here’s my best effort at describing her inspiration: “Elegance and lightness inspired by waves that refract on the shoreline and bring the treasures from the bottom of the sea to the surface.

Still, not satisfying. Federica is a poet of words and jewels. Her pieces make me daydream. We are lucky to have so many talented young artists around us. As far as Federica goes, her pieces are all handmade in Italy, one of a kind, and can be engraved just for you. Feel free to reach out for more information.

HOW I LOVELOVELOVE  La Mini D de DIORr SATINE….

 

 

 

The intricate stiches of the Milanese mesh steel bracelet invoke the supple threads of a satin ribbon. And as ever with the artist Eleri Mills you can see how the landscape of her rural Welsh childhood has inspired her work: the threads here recall the summer fields of Powys, where she was born, and import them into a watchmaker’s vernacular. From afar, they look like a painting. Close up, the detailing will take your breath away. The watch’s delicate ornamental stone dials are beautifully embellished with gold bezel and crown. In short, this timepiece is a beautiful marriage of Swiss watchmaking expertise with Dior fine jewelry.

Here I wear the watch with a Chaumet Ring Serp from Terres d’Or collection: an oval-cut yellow sapphire weighing 12.36 carats from Ceylon round yellow sapphires, lacquer, and brilliant-cut diamonds.
