Nadıne Ghosn Plays Wıth Utensıls for New Jewelry Collectıon
Fine jewelry designer Nadine Ghosn will be presenting a new collection that centers around utensils reimagined as playful luxury bracelets in London.
The new styles will include diamond-studded curved straw bracelets in gold and silver, as well as gold pieces that look like a pair of chopsticks, a fork and a spoon wrapping around the wrist.
“The thinking behind this was glorifying these everyday objects and tools,” said Ghosn, who’s often looking to the everyday for inspiration. Her playful takes on burgers, Lego blocks, bicycle chains, pencils and paper clips helped her carve a niche in the industry, and led to major collaborations with the likes of Frieze and celebrity French baker Cédric Grolet.
The new collection starts at $9,800 for the straw styles and $16,000 for the chopsticks, forks and spoon models. The designer said she wants to create pieces that everyone can relate to regardless of the price point.
“It’s not only for the foodie who recognizes what the shape is, but it’s really for people from anywhere at any age to play with it. I did some research and I haven’t seen a straw glorified like that. Obviously, there are iterations of the cylindrical shapes, but never really like a fork, a spoon or a pair of chopsticks,” Ghosn said.
