Originally conceived for the French International Design Biennale 2008, ‘Petroleum Jewellery’ was deemed too complex for series production.
Imagined by Florian Dussopt + Julie Girard and produced by London based jewellery designer Niza Huang, each piece is an intricate composition of either 18ct Gold plated Sterling Silver or Sterling Silver, Petroleum and Mineral glass.
Petroleum is considered ‘black gold’, a precious substance which literally fuels the modern world, though it also has the capacity to destroy it.
‘Petroleum Jewellery’ asks us to think about how precious this substance is and how beautiful it can be, how it needs to be preserved, so our planet is preserved for future generations.
Each piece of ‘Petroleum Jewellery’, is a breathtaking hand made sculpture, containing a droplet of petroleum magnified by mineral glass, encased inside a delicate silver or gold cocoon. The concept has been re-imagined in various forms, encompassing, rings, earrings, pendants and bangles.
