London-based artist and designer Eliane Fattal has been collaborating since 2011 with SJ Phillips, the connoisseur’s mecca for antique jewellery, to create unique, historic yet modern pieces. Consisting of archival treasures resurrected as contemporary, wearable, sometimes transformable pieces, the work draws as its inspiration imagery from nature: Flowers, leaves, insects, butterflies and animals.
Each treasure is encased in a red embossed jewel box in the form of a book, with the provenance and history of the piece inscribed on the inside. The book itself serves to remind its owner that this is but yet one chapter in the long life of their updated newly acquired heirloom.
Eliane has exhibited at Masterpiece and Pad London.
