BY BIBI VAN DER VELDEN
Inspired by the smoke that swirls and lingers after you light a stick of incense or blow out a candle, a momentary, visual art experience. The collection is an interpretation of the beauty of a single line of smoke. The simplicity and complexity. Awakening your 4th-dimensional awareness.
DISCOVER THE COLLECTION
Contemplating how to capture a moment in time, Bibi studied these shapes, ever-changing, quickly dissolving. Observing the lines, simple to complex weaving in and out of eachother. Sometimes cloudy and full, billowing, taking up space before seamlessly disappearing into nothing. A fleeting dance, always different, always mesmerising. Intrigued, Bibi, a sculptor at heart, set out to translate these dream-like visions through her favourite medium, stone. How could something so solid evoke movement and energy? The challenge excited her and inspired our new collection Smoke.
/fjuːm/ noun an amount of gas or vapour that is dangerous to inhale.
The simplicity of the shape of a line of smoke without stones has an ultra modern feel. The diamond version elevates, accentuates and frames your face. Dazzling with its ombre tones, a darker side of smoke, curious, mysterious.
/ˈveɪpə/ a substance diffused or suspended in the air, especially one normally liquid or solid.
Invisible closure makes it an easy wear everyday piece. Classic and refined, whispering smoke. Sleek on your wrist. The diamond version is a beautiful eye capturing piece for your wrist with moody tones of smoke.
/ ˈsməʊldə / verb to burn slowly with smoke but no flame.
Exquisitely crafted. Opulent earrings reminiscent of the fragility of smoke, wavey rings that start strong and fade to ripples of gold. The mechanism gives the illusion of being a contemporary cuff with the hidden security of the post.
