Wood and Russia with Annoushka Ducas




Annoushka Ducas touches wood and recalls her childhood in Russia ♦ ︎
Touch wood, in many countries has a talismanic meaning. It is an action, that is to keep the bad luck away. But touching wood can also mean attachment to an object, perhaps a jewel. This is what the British designer Annoushka Ducas has also thought. She joined the two concepts and launched his latest collection, Touch Wood, inspired by her childhood memories in Russia. The jewels have domes with onion shape as those of the Kremlin churches, along with a noble and resistant wood, the ebony, like the ring that was worn by the designer’s mother. Together with domes, which become pendants, rings or earrings, gold tassels also appear, and a cross but in a Christian-orthodox version, with three bars horizontally. Ebony is sometimes visible, for example as an onion-shaped pendant, while sometimes wood, hand-worked, is hidden inside the jewel but always in contact with the skin: it is its function catch lucky. In addition to wood, jewels are made of gold, diamonds, aquamarine. Giulia Netrese
