Hemmerle Nature’s Jewels: accessories’ Garden of Eden
Hemmerle, a fourth generation family-run jewellers situated at the vanguard of design, has just launched their newest endeavour of nature-inspired jewellery. The 16-piece debut collection takes notes from the origins of the natural world; with seeds, leaves and trees, all coming together to form awe-inspiring jewellery that Adam and Eve would eat the forbidden fruit for.
Stefan and Sylveli Hemmerle and their son Christian and daughter-in-law Yasmin joined forces in running the business which is renowned for their excellent use of materials to produce stunning, vivid and rule-breaking creations. The newest collection consists of 12 brooches, two pairs of earrings, a necklace and a ring that take the simplest but most bold form. The eclectic woodland-come-exotic scene of acorns, chestnuts, rose hips, pomegranate, arbutus and more was featured in TEFAF Maastricht early 2014, and has been a great success.
The collection also takes yet another step aside from the ordinary by being celebrated alongside the publication of Nature’s Jewels, the limited edition poetry book published by MACK and sourced by Greta Bellamacina. The unique twist in their already thriller movie of a collection is only enhanced further by this credit to their name. Christian Hemmerle says: “We wanted to produce a book that included poetry because our own philosophy resonates with it – originality, beauty, boldness, creativity, and technical understanding also all go into making a Hemmerle jewel.”
Each piece of jewellery is paired with a unique poem that matches its compelling charm, with the rose hip brooch being matched with Walking Past a Rose this June written by Alice Oswald, a contemporary British poet with a mesmerising charm. The vibrancy is only replicated further through the arbutus fruit, this is mirrored through orange-red sapphires and demantoid garnets that are embellished on gold, silver, copper and bronze-leafed bough, which is put along with My Love’s an Arbutus written by Alfred Graves.
The beauty isn’t cut short; it carries on with the next item of a rare sun-orange coloured melo pearl in a physalis brooch encased in gold; this ornate but vibrant luxury item lures the beautiful out of the dark, and is matched with an equally beautiful poem called Japanese Lantern Plant by Matsuo Bashō.
Like nature itself, these poems are international by being published in eight languages, and also being available in calligraphy in their original language and in English, to enhance the simple and earthy feel of the collection, and to add even more of a luxe appeal, lyrical writing of eight other poets also appear in the book.
Beauty like this is rare, (especially as it is limited edition), so when life needs to be shaped down to simplicity, choose poetry…and flashy jewels.
