he(art) jewelry

this is the first in a series of posts dedicated to contemporary jeweler's work that i appreciate.
{benjamin lignel}

benjamin lignel is an artist/designer working in paris, france. he began with studies in art history and furniture design. i very much like the 'in context' photo of the pieces above. i find myself drawn to this particular type of narrative or artful photographing of jewelry on the wearer. i like the multitude of meanings that could be read in the image and also how particularly simple or sentimental the pieces are. he also has a really beautiful collection of pieces called "Thinking of You" which are portraits of the ears of individual's loved ones. please take a look at his work.

{thanks for reading}
