The delicate bindweed flowers turned into jewels by Aida Bergsen presented at the Couture Show ♦ ︎
Aida Bergsen, jeweler and sculptor with a Nordic name, but a Mediterranean atelier: in Istanbul to be precise. But with international distribution, from France to the USA. In fact, she decided to present her limited edition Convolvulus Sepium collection at the Couture Show 2019, a Latin name indicating bindweed, a climbing plant with a rather common bell-shaped flower. Along with flowers and leaves, small specimens of fauna appear, such as bees or lizards.
The pieces in the Convolvulus Sepium collection are a mix of 18 carat gold and blackened silver, enamel and set with rose-cut diamonds, surrounding everything from large pedants to exclusively cut gemstone rings. The collection presented at Couture has already been presented at Christie’s Auction House in Paris and sold by Bergdorf Goodman of New York, as part of a private exhibition at the Jewelry Room.
Aida Bergsen creates jewels with different themes that reflect the traces of her hometown, Istanbul, but also of the different cultural layers that are her roots.
