GEMS OF THE WILD

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The News Bazaar -

Hav­ing worked with Harumi Klos­sowska de Rola be­fore, Caro­line Scheufele, Chopard’s artis­tic di­rec­tor, ap­proached the artist again to col­lab­o­rate on four fas­ci­nat­ing haute joail­lerie pieces. Daugh­ter of the late pain­ter Balt­hazar Klos­sowski de Rola, Harumi has gar­nered in­ter­na­tional ac­claim in the world of jew­ellery mak­ing.

It helps that both she and Scheufele share a vi­sion. “I was in­stantly at­tracted by the brand’s an­i­mal uni­verse, which is very pre­cious to me,” re­veals Harumi. Con­tin­u­ing the theme of bes­tiary are two snakes, a pan­ther, and a leop­ard. The high­light, a black snake, can be worn as a neck­lace or a bracelet. Its sen­sual curves are made of black­ened white gold, while glim­mer­ing emer­ald eyes pierce through a head of brown and black di­a­monds to give the cre­ation a life of its own. “She’s a true artist,” says Scheufele. “She de­signs pieces that are si­mul­ta­ne­ously strong and fem­i­nine.”
