Eliane Fattal is a bit of an alchemist. From turning Art Deco hair combs into luxurious modern earrings to repurposing 19th-century diamond butterflies into a glamorous new necklace, Fattal transforms and sculpts antique jewels to breathe new life into them and reveal their timeless beauty and significance to a contemporary audience.
From 27 June–3 July, the artist-jeweller will present a number of pieces created in close collaboration with Sotheby’s Diamonds, in a selling-exhibition that will take place during London’s prestigious art fair, Masterpiece.
Each piece is based on 19th- or 20th-century jewels re-imagined to seamlessly incorporate beautiful rare diamonds. The results are modern and playful pieces of high jewellery, marrying the flawless craftsmanship of past masters, the impeccable savoir-faire of today’s best diamond cutters and the matchless vision of an artist. The designs are also highly wearable and versatile: as in many of Fattal’s signature pieces, they can be taken apart to create different looks.
