The formlessness of color itself defines a form.
New York, New York (PRWEB) November 28, 2013
Luxury designer jewelry line, Enfants Perdus, has released a preview of its ‘Blind to All But the Light’ collection. The new pieces, including hand-carved precious stones such as amazonite, tiger’s eye, and obsidian, will arrive in stores by the holidays, and are also available online. Pieces have been dipped in luscious 18 karat gold and sterling silver, and for the first time, Enfants Perdus has delved into beautiful, high-polished finishes.
The ‘Blind to All But the Light’ collection is inspired by the effervescent nature of light, and the prismatic colors that are hidden within each ray from the sun. This collection spotlights the role and presence of color – both from an aesthetic perspective, and also as an allegory for time states and the zeitgeist present within society as a whole.
Designer Quatre Tsien began the design of the collection by studying the behavior of people in public spaces and doing rapid sketches of the energy within the scene with colored pencils, which he broke down as follows. “The formlessness of color itself defines a form. The flow of people and their interactions throughout the day – from the breaking of the dawn and the handful of souls to venture from the subway, to the controlled chaos of Union Square in the evenings – form an infinite continuum of prismatic light.”
Highlights of the collection include the Encircled Pendants; each of these hand-carved precious stone pendants have been chiseled and cut from solid blocks of stone, and then set into highly polished and finished gold frames. High quality craftsmanship has been employed in each piece.
