The elements of Lego become bijoux and jewels in the unusual interpretation of the creative Emiko Oye in San Francisco ♦
Emiko Oye is a truly original San Francisco artist: she reinvented Lego bricks by turning them into bracelets and necklaces. Some of the pieces are considered works of art that reinterpret Cartier’s famous jewels, such as La Reine de Pèlerin, inspired by the Peregrina, a famous drop pearl mounted by the Parisian jeweler for Richard Burton who gave it to Elizabeth Taylor, or La ceremonia de la Mémoire , ceremonial collar commissioned in 1928 by the Indian Maharajah Sir Bhupindra Singh de Patiala. Definitely less demanding are the bracelets in various sizes and the pendants that can be purchased on its website with prices ranging from 70 up to $ 875 for the limited edition Stardust collection necklace.
This too, like the other bijoux, is made with repurposed and chrome-plated Lego elements, hand-sewn on cotton and silk. A golden ribbon is wrapped around the neck with an integrated Lego magnetic closure and details in 14-carat yellow gold thread. The tape is in nylon-polyester blend. Lavinia Andorno
