Brazil­ian jew­ellery de­signer Ana Khouri on her art­ful ap­proach to de­sign.

ELLE (Canada) - - Style -

DREAM BIG “I stud­ied art be­fore I went on to study jew­ellery. In art, ev­ery­thing is pos­si­ble be­cause it doesn’t have to make sense. It taught me to think about what I want my jew­ellery to say and put func­tion­al­ity sec­ond.”

BODY OF WORK “I want my de­signs to en­hance the form of the wearer. It’s not just about em­bel­lish­ment.” FREE-FOR- ALL “I think that jew­ellery is hav­ing a free mo­ment. Of course, there’s a choker mo­ment, and a hugeear­ring mo­ment, but now it’s about the girl who never wanted to wear [tra­di­tional] jew­ellery.” FAN CLUB “Jen­nifer Lawrence wears our jew­ellery a lot; she re­ally em­bod­ies the Ana Khouri woman and the sim­plic­ity of be­ing true to one­self. When celebri­ties un­der­stand [my] work and want to wear it, it’s re­ally spe­cial.” (From $826, at Ar­chives, archivesltd.com)
