Jewel’s anatomy by Ana Khouri

By Aurélia Vigouroux

 

In her workshops in Sao Paolo, Gold and precious stones are ethically selected.

And craftsmen refine and pay attention to every detail.

Last but not least, Ana Khouri draws and sculpts tirelessly, numerous sketches in search of perfect alchemy that transforms the jewel into an object connected to the owner, therefore creating singular pieces. “The jewel comes to life when you wear it, it follows your movements, Anna khouri likes to think” it has a soul”, each design highlights a body part. Her designs are delicate and finely chiseled to sublimate the sparkle of diamonds and fits closely organic lines following those of the female anatomy, which was her favorite subject at sculpture school. Body and jewels are thus united for life.
