Collections

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 limited 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.

In a mystical wonderland far far away, a new breed of fantastical, carnivorous and poisonous living treasures emerge.

Beauty and Beast . Bloom Sculptures

 2013 . 2016

Anabela Chan's love for colour extends past gemstones and into the exotic.  During a childhood spent travelling, she developed an interest in avian zoology and later, taxidermy.  These fascinations take her Objets D'Art into the realm of entomology.  Each piece has hundreds of delicate, precious butterfly wings set on spokes and spools of brass and gold.  Divorced of their 'thingness', these wings become intricate masses of ethereal colour.

Since its first inception in 2013, Les Ateliers Courbet New York unveiled the artist's latest works in May 2016, as part of Chan's debut solo exhibition 'The Natural Curiosities of Anabela Chan'.

 'The Beauty and Beast series is a collection of sculptures I started to make during my time at The Royal College of Art.  To me they personify the very idea of beauty and beast as a symbiotic nature in all things. Butterflies and roses are the two things I have been obsessed with all my life; their beauty, their variety, their freedom.  Like dreams, they are the more precious because their time is fleeting.  It is perhaps my tribute to the every mesmerizing state of nature from life to death; my interpretation of a notion of beauty in transience, immortalized in time.'

A feminine, joyful and romantic collection of intricate fine jewelry inspired by the magical orchard gardens with dancing butterflies in full bloom.

The Butterfly Orchard Collection is about offering the magic of haute joaillerie, using the finest craftsmanship of a bygone era to design a range of covetable jewels with a modern wearability. The same meticulous process in haute joaillerie is used to handcraft every piece; featuring a combination of sustainable, ethical laboratory-grown and created gemstones that share the beauty and optical qualities to natural stones.  Every story begins by hand-carving the designs in wax before casting in parts, then assembling, polishing and engraving in meticulous detail. Every stone is carefully selected for its brilliance and colour; then cut, faceted, polished and set painstakingly by hand using traditional artisan techniques.
