Met Gala 2019 ūüĆü

FORBES ūüĆü The Best Jewels at the Met Gala 2019 ūüíé

So incredibly humbled to be in the company of the mega houses Cartier, Bulgari, Tiffany, Harry Winston, David Webb.. But most of all, so proud to represent and be at the forefront of ethical and sustainable fine and high jewellery; championing laboratory-grown and created gemstones paired with intrinsic, thoughtful design and meticulous artisan craftsmanship.

Six years ago when I was studying my Masters in Jewellery at The Royal College of Art in London , I visited a mine in Sri Lanka during my honeymoon.  It was a life-changing experience for me - seeing is believing. When I founded my eponymous brand over 5 years ago on graduation, it was my mission to offer a different perspective in the industry - I wanted to create equally beautiful and fabulous one-of-a-kind jewels using laboratory-grown and created gemstones without the conflict, humanitarian issues and untraceable provenance associated with mining.

  I find a potent synergy in the juxtaposition of precious and non-precious, natural and manmade materials, it is luxury with a touch of mindful humbleness.  I never think that it is a competition between the two genres, but rather offering a different perspective and option to the consumer, a more accessible and mindful alternative, and in shining light on the ethics and sustainability within our centuries-old industry it will also drive positive change by consumer-demand for more responsible practice from the very top - to ensure the well-being of miners, their communities and the land with better safety standards, fair pay, equal rights and land restoration. 

As a designer I choose to focus my work with lab-grown, created and recycled gemstones, I also admire the work of other designers who champion recycled materials, who work solely with reputable mines and support small scale artisanal miners directly.  For me it is about learning from the past, to offer a different perspective in the present, always in mind for a better future. 

I am learning everyday and the future is exciting and the future is bright! ūüĆüūüĆüūüĆü¬†

Anabela Chan Debut New York Solo Exhibition at Les Ateliers Courbet 
We are delighted to invite you to Anabela Chan's debut solo exhibition in New York this Spring
Les Ateliers Courbet . The Master Craftsmen's Gallery
on 175 Mott Street . New York . 10012
May 16 - June 30
Private Preview May 15
Anabela Chan originally trained as an architect and designs intricately complex, delicate jewelry that encompasses an endless variety of precious stones and metals. Combining her love affair with gemstones and an obsession to detail and perfection Chan creates jewelry of infinite depth and dazzling colors.

For the May 2016 exhibition at Les Ateliers Courbet, the artist focuses on her rare and precious decorative¬†arts and sculpture series. Anabela¬†Chan‚Äôs love for¬†colour¬†extends past gemstones and into the exotic. During¬†a childhood spent traveling, she developed an interest in avian zoology and, later, taxidermy. These¬†fascinations take her objet d‚Äôart into the realm of entomology. Each piece has hundreds of butterfly¬†wings¬†attached to spokes and spools of brass and gold. Divorced of their¬†‚Äúthingness,‚ÄĚ these wings become intricate¬†masses of ethereal¬†colour. ¬†¬†Since its first inception in 2013, we will unveil Chan's latest works -¬†Beasts .¬†Series 2 this May.

Les Ateliers Courbet will also introduce a series of unique objets d’art created by the artist using pieces she selected from the collections of the New York Gallery’s master-craftsmen, J. & L. Lobmeyr Crystal from Austria.

In conjunction with the exhibition, Anabela Chan is unveiling this year a collaborative collection of textiles for Bernhardt Design. The American furniture and textile makers have invited the artist to create a series of textile designs and patterns using her creative universe and the sources of inspiration she finds in nature.
Les Ateliers Courbet will present a unique installation playing with the variety of patterns the artist has designed for Bernhardt.

Chan’s pieces evoke the Fin-de-Siecle collections of hand-painted blown glass menageries. Their fragility and precision combine to create forms that hardly seem objects of nature. Through an alchemy of natural, precious and man-made materials, Anabela combines elegant sculptural forms with dream-like romanticism and thought-provoking narratives, to create enchanting one-of-a-kind treasures that are adorned and collected alike.
About J. & L. Lobmeyr : The Magic of Sensuality
Viennese Glass and Chandelier Manufacturer Celebrates 190 Years of Creativity

Lobmeyr is in its sixth generation as a family business today. A love of the material, the emotional relationship with the product and the commitment of personal energy defined our method of working from the beginning. In this context each generation leaves its trace. 
In 1823 Josef Lobmeyr senior founds the company in Vienna‚Äôs Weihburggasse and soon becomes Purveyor to the Imperial Court. Josef and Ludwig Lobmeyr (1855‚Äď 1917): Ludwig becomes the pioneer of Austrian/Bohemian crystal production and presents the company at the first World Fairs; in 1864 he is the co-founder of the Austrian Museum of Applied Arts in Vienna. Ludwig‚Äôs nephew Stefan Rath senior (1902‚Äď1960) leads Lobmeyr into the Modern Movement and is a co-founder of the √Ėsterreichischer Werkbund in 1912.¬†
Enduring classics are created in cooperation with Josef Hoffmann and the other artists of the Wiener Werkst√§tte. Hans Harald Rath (1938‚Äď1968) rebuilds Austrian crystal manufacture after the war and revolutionises the chandelier. An example of his work still hangs in the auditorium of the Vienna State Opera today.

Adorn . India
I love India.
Venturing through the vibrant markets of Old Delhi to the majestic palaces of Jaipur, India is like a time machine as Stanley Stewart perfectly puts it:  "If the past is another country - heroic, glamorous, romantic - it is travel that allows us to reach it."

Jewels of the Aegean Sea 

‚ÄėAs I marveled at the magical reefs, the songs of mermaids resonate¬†
through the shimmering effervescence of the mystical Aegean Sea.’

'Travelling to the exotic and the orient is one of my greatest passions. Through my travels 
I collect unusual gems and treasures from local markets, nature and the unusual people I 
meet; where I then use my findings to create unique editions of couture jewellery, that are 
almost like souvenirs of my journeys.  Each piece is one-of-a-kind; a story-telling treasure 
that can be worn or displayed alike.'





The Art of Craftsmanship

A glimpse into the Art of Craftsmanship - See our behind the scenes at the atelier workshop and Anabela's jeweller work bench.  

True beauty emerge from organised chaos.



We are extremely proud and excited to announce the launch of our collaboration with HK based publisher, Babaobox on their latest September issue: 'OBSESSIONS'  

Babaobox, meaning ''treasure chest' in Chinese, is a multi-format album and objects of design, art, lifestyle and fashion produced in exclusive numbered limited editions of 400. 

Babaobox collaborates with tastemakers, cultural leaders and inspiring thinkers to curate items, made exclusively; each with extraordinary stories, delivered to your doorstep. The curators featured in each box are invited to engage in a creative dialogue surrounding a particular theme. Babaobox releases a new box quarterly, offering unique treasures for the inquisitive mind.  


 Anabela Chan x Babaobox 

See our creation of a pair of beautifully hand-crafted bone-china tea cups; with a unique Poppy flower butterfly print created for Babaobox, hand-gilded with a delicate 18 carat gold rim.   Inspired by the beauty and beastial duality of the poppy flower; the Chinese cultural obsession of tea-drinking and Hong Kong's history with the Opium War, the Poppy teacups take cultural, historical and aesthetic influences on the theme of Obsession and the potent colour Red.  In a world obsessed with digital gadgets and social media, the coupling tea cups encourage human interaction and conversation; a moment of Zen and the luxury of tea-drinking and intimate pastime with a friend.
Babaobox Box 2: OBSESSIONS

The world is becoming more obsessive‚ÄĒfrom a global addiction to mobile games to K-Pop plaguing all ages with symptoms of hysteria. Obsessions fuel purpose and striving for that greater purpose can be addictive. Box 2 explores whether obsessions is an essential ingredient for success. Join us in a diagnosis of obsessions from curators: Anabela Chan, Adrian Wong, Samantha Reid and ESKYIU (Marisa Yiu and Eric Schuldenfrei). Order Box 2 for a tangible experience that embodies their passions and find out how obsessions drive their creativity and success.

This is a limited edition of 400 boxes with a unique and auspicious numbering system.

The wise words of Mr. B

'I'm going to give you a little bit of advice. If you can't afford it, do not touch it. Go away - don't even think about it. If you can afford it, you'd be stupid not to buy it.'      

Sidney Burstein

 Mr. Sidney Burstein is the late husband of the legendary Joan Burstein, 86, owner and founder of the Browns boutique in South Molton Street, London founded in 1970.  

In the words of Mrs B. on her husband and business partner to The Telegraph in January 2013:  'My husband, Sidney, was a very dynamic man with masses of common sense. He handled the business side of Browns - I'm hopeless with money - and he loved talking to people. Once, we had a very wealthy customer who came into the shop and asked for a discount on a dress. Sidney said to her, 'I'm going to give you a little bit of advice. If you can't afford it, do not touch it. Go away - don't even think about it. If you can afford it, you'd be stupid not to buy it.'  I was mortified, but he said it was just common sense. In the end, she bought the dress.'

Browns is one of my most admired boutiques in the world.  Mr. Burstein's respect for great design and craftsmanship, and his infamous advice still remains one of the most enlightening of all.
