Drawn by the poetry of ordinary objects in unfamiliar contexts, Wouters & Hendrix have been playing around with mussel-shaped charms in many collections. This oversized specimen on a key ring is a tribute to the work of surrealist Marcel Broodthaers. The Belgian artist considered the mussel to be an independent organism, shaped far from the whims of society, just like we want our ‘Le Cache-Clés’ to blatantly tell your story. Bending the traditional rules of jewellery-making while winking at surrealism, the ‘La Fête des Bêtes’ collection embodies everything Wouters & Hendrix is so very fond of. And just like in surrealism, the meaning behind the designs and symbols from this collection is for the wearer to interpret and make her or his own.
As the precious materials we love to work with require specific care, we have summarized our best tips in a care guide.
How to take care of your 'Le Rêve en Boîte' jewellery box:
1. Do not place the jewellery box in direct sunlight.
2. Do not place the jewellery box above a heat source.
3. Do not keep the jewellery box in a room with high humidity.
Sumptuous boxes with a black velvet pedestal accompany our jewellery. They are a beautiful way to present and keep every jewellery token of memorable moments safe and sound.
