HERVÉ VAN DER STRAETEN

Artist-designer Hervé Van der Straeten has been crafting bold, sculptural jewelry in an array of striking precious metals since 1985. Taking an architectural approach to jewelry design, Van der Straeten, who also creates luxe furniture, employs traditional artisan techniques to decidedly modern effect. Using hammered, polished, gold-plated and blackened brass, Van der Straeten makes eye-catching cuffs, earrings and necklaces, drawing inspiration from organic and geometric shapes found in nature.
