RECYCLED ALUMINIUM COLLECTION . BLOOMS!

BLOOMS is the first of its kind fine jewellery collection featuring refined aluminium from recycled drink cans as the base metal, paired with scintillating laboratory-grown and created gemstones in vivid hues to create a dramatic, unusual and sculptural garden of blossoming blooms.

 It is a project of 2 and half years in the making that began in 2017 and launched in 2020.  Through a process of trial and error, melting and refining waste aluminium drink cans at 600°C degrees into molten bars of ingots, in combination with traditional artisanal methods of lost wax casting.  A tale from 'Trash to Treasures', BLOOMS is the designer’s most exciting and innovative collection yet.

Through an alchemy of precious, natural and man-made materials, Anabela combines elegant sculptural forms with dream-like romanticism and thought-provoking narratives. 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.

‘It is about offering inspiring, ethical and sustainable jewels that are beautifully hand-crafted with longevity; works of art that are worn, loved and treasured forever.’     Anabela Chan
