BLACK DIAMOND SKULL

Filed under: Necklace — Tags: — admin @ 2:01 am

I wanted this pendant to feel like a recently unearthed artifact, so the 18K gold is visibly textured. The inscription — “Carpe Diem,” which is Latin for “seize the day” — has an antique look and, as you can see, it’s also in Leonardo da Vinci-style mirror writing, so that when you’re wearing this necklace, you can see the message when you look at your reflection.This pendant has been a long time in the making. I met the gem cutter in 2016 at the JCK Luxury jewelry show, where he was selling other nontraditionally cut diamonds. I took his card and, after a couple of months of consideration, asked if he could do a skull. One year later, this 3-carat skull was completed.

The four tapered baguettes around the skull were cut in 2015 by another gem dealer. I had planned to set the baguettes in a ring I made that year, but I changed my mind about the ring design and kept the stones for a future project. I decided to use them in this piece this January, which is when I shared a rough sketch on Instagram.

Interestingly enough, the timing for the completed necklace couldn’t have been more perfect. As I was putting the finishing touches on my pendant, National Jeweler published a story about medallions.

Virgil Abloh Pushes the Louis Vuitton Men’s Division to the Edge

“Louis Vuitton Men's Division to the Edge”的图片搜索结果
Early last week, the newly-anointed head of Louis Vuitton’s Men’s Division gave us an Instagram sneak peek at his debut collection, and it was everything you would expect from an engineer-turned-architect-turned-fashion designer.
Abloh has taken a very recognizable shape, Louis Vuitton’s Keepall duffel, and given it a modern, streetwise update. While the shape and the embossed LV logo may be familiar, that is about where the similarities end with any former collections. Abloh chose a silver-finish patent leather trim and translucent PVC material for this piece – a grand departure from any of the signature Louis Vuitton men’s styles of fashion cycles gone by. The body of the bag also appears to be translucent, with an iridescent finish, so while the bag may make a pretty bold statement, equally, it won’t be very effective at keeping your secrets.

Those who follow the accessories design world will already know that Virgil Abloh is a force to be reckoned with on the fashion scene. Recently voted one of Time Magazines 100 Most Influential People for 2018, the Ghanian-American designer recently took the reins at Louis Vuitton’s Men’s Division, and is already turning heads with his debut collection.

Even before his days as a designer, Abloh was always interested in the structure of things. He obtained a degree in civil engineering at the University of Wisconsin Madison in 2002, and went on to earn his Master of Architecture from the Illinois institute of Technology in 2006. It wasn’t until 2009 that Abloh entered the fashion arena with an internship at Fendi (alongside Kanye West, with whom he still collaborates), and ultimately launched his first label, Off White.
