Everyday objects

The leitmotif of this very young Lebanese-Brazilian designer, Nadine Ghosn: transforming the objects that make a mark on her time into jewelry. Here is a gold mini-battery charged or completely flat according to the number of diamonds on it, or a hamburger made up of several stacked rings. The most outstanding piece is the necklace featuring diamond headphones connected by a wire on its way to disappearing, as it’s dethroned by Bluetooth.

At Bon Marché.
