The "Styloïde", newly arrived at the gallery des Bijoux

In perfect osmosis with the human anatomy, the “Styloïde” bracelet by designer Lise Vanrycke (1999) has just entered the gallery des Bijoux collection at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs. This link bracelet developed with a watchmaker, over 3 years, bears the name of the small pointed bone located at the side of the wrist it graces. Extensible, and completely body conscious, it harks back to the “Bone” bracelet, molded on the wrist in the 70s by Elsa Peretti for Tiffany&Co.
