CRAFTED & CARVED

"Crafted & Carved Part II is an interesting sequel to Crafted & Carved; a collection dedicated to vintage everyday objects such as lighters, make up boxes, match holders and jewelry boxes. 

Back in the days these everyday objects were transformed into little treasures, by engraving them with patterns and adorning them with gems. Especially the idea of engraving decorative lines & checkers on the surface of a simple object to give it a classy and sophisticated look, fascinated Studio Collect. 

The same source of inspiration applies to Crafted & Carved Part II, but refreshing new designs and materials make their appearance. For example, they integrated bayong wood into various pieces."

Back in the days everyday objects were often transformed into jewels by adorning them with gems and engraving them with textures; think of vintage lighters, match holders, makeup and jewelry boxes in precious materials. High End houses such as Cartier and S.T. Dupont have a rich heritage in manufacturing these type of extraordinary pieces. Especially the idea of engraving lines or check patterns on the surface of an otherwise simple object to give it a classy appearance fascinated Studio Collect. The lead role goes to the different textures and patterns in “Crafted & Carved”, a jewelry collection dedicated to those treasured everyday objects. The collection exudes a smart and sophisticated elegance by combining traditional craftsmanship with stones in an earth tone color pallet of different shades of soft pink, green, orange, warm grey and light blue. Cartier describes their luxury goods as faithful companions, and that is exactly how Studio Collect sees every piece in their collection.
