Experimenting beyond her signature coiled snakes, the Colombian designer's new collection is an array of geometric pieces rendered in her trademark vibrant gold-plated brass. Accents of onyx, turquoise and Swarovski crystal pop against the richly colored metal.
Lovin’ these tiny ink-wash people that artist + SFMOMA employee Tim Svenonius painted on our office’s wall for the staff art show. There are hundreds of ‘em wandering the blank whiteness of the hallway, reminding us to take our time and slow down. :)
This beautiful design for a head ornament was created in 1928 for the Maharaja of Patiala by Boucheron. Earlier that year, the Maharaja had arrived in the Place Vendôme accompanied by six large boxes of gemstones which he delivered to Boucheron with the request that they be used to make 149 pieces of jewellery. This design is just one of many that were drawn up as part of the most extraordinary commission the Maison has ever received.
