How much do you know about facial jewelry? If you are like me, a person who doesn’t know much about fashion and beauty trends, the first thing that would come to mind after seeing these two words would be pierced eyebrows, lips, noses, or maybe cheeks. But, no, I’m not talking about facial piercing here, this stuff has been around for a long time. I’m talking about a new kind of experimental jewelry created by a new generation of extremely talented jewelry artists. Something truly beautiful and unique. So how about we take a look at some of the most extravagant of them?
Emma Ware Jewelry
Based in London, Emma Ware is a talented jewelry designer and an environmental activist. Her first jewelry pieces were made out of recycled bicycle tires. Her latest collection Celestial is made out of recycled silver. This collection features a number of particularly fascinating pieces: septum and a nose cuff.
Pêche Péché Amateur Jewelry
This concisely provocative brand was created by two Russian friends – a set-designer Marina Spirina and a photographer Elena Sarapultseva. Girls worked together on several photo projects that involved jewelry before they came up with an idea for the brand. Pêche Péché Amateur’s jewelry has a very simple design with quite a provocative meaning. The designers admit they try to give “a new meaning” to regular things and “find a new use for words”
ALAN CROCETTI Jewellery
Here we have another London based designer who couldn’t come to terms with the fact that only women are supposed to wear jewelry. He would go like: “men also have ears, wrists, and fingers, why can’t they wear what they like?”. This is why his jewelry is gender-neutral, he blurs the lines between male and female jewelry which gives us the freedom to wear exactly what we like.
Being a huge fan of Lord Of the Rings, I can tell you I dig this one. This is what Arven would wear if she lived in 2020.
Claudia Lepik Jewelry
Claudia’s edgy and avant-garde jewelry distort faces in ways that might seem challenging for a conventional eye.
Ewa Nowak’s Incognito Mask
Ewa Nowak is not exactly a jeweler. She’s actually a sculptor who works mainly with metal. Ewa made a name thanks to her genius and, frankly, very stylish creation – a minimalistic facial mask that blocks facial recognition. I’m telling you if I weren’t a four-eyed, I’d definitely wear this incognito mask.
People are obsessed with the way they look and would do anything to modify their faces in order to fit in a certain standard. This series reflects just that. And it’s both sad and fascinating.
Keren Wolf Jewelry
Keren came up with an idea to start her own jewelry line when she created her first piece of jewelry for her own wedding. Today Keren Wolf designs wedding accessories, such as unusual headpieces and bizarre jewelry. Remember the piece of facial jewelry Solange Knowles was wearing on the cover of the “When I Get Home” album? It was designed by Keren Wolf. Wolf also designed jewelry for Lady Gaga for her Joanne world tour.
Get Man Jewelry
This Moscow based brand offers a lot of really awesome luxury pieces like portupeyas, body jewelry, massive rings and facial masks made of metal elements and gem beads. Celebrities like Alessandra Ambrosio have been frequently spotted wearing jewelry pieces designed by this young but very promising brand.
