Shimmer-shammer fantasy is all that comes to mind when I see the wondrous work by Victoire de Castellane of Dior Haute Joaillerie. She conceives flowers and creatures that nature would envy and spins spectacular tales with gemstones that words cannot relay. One can discover the magic behind her creations in video:
In March 2011, she had a solo show at Gagosian in Paris titled “Fleurs d’excès” (Flowers of Excess), for which she created 10 inspired works that recall myths and fairy tales and transforms them into wearable, elegant hybrid jewelry.
Should I have the pleasure of wearing one of her creations, I’m not sure if the jewelry could beam more than I would.
