The Exotic line is launched to welcome the spring. Therefore, tropical birds in vivid colors have been chosen as the main pattern of this collection. The dawn chorus occurs when birds sing at the start of a new day. In tropical countries like Vietnam, this is most noticeable in spring when the birds are either defending a breeding territory, trying to attract a mate, or calling in the flock.
Exotic highlights the art of hand painting on lacquer. This is a special technique that requires time and a meticulous care. The base design is stenciled in and the details are painted by hand, which makes every product an original piece.
This collection goes in line with a product line, also called “Exotic” of 2018 Art of Living Collection.
Elsa line is characterized by the application of mother-of-pearl lustre to enhance a simple and uncomplicated beauty. The mother-of-pearl inlay technique is traditionally used to create sophisticated patterns but in this lacquer jewelry line, it translates a modern spirit. The combination with gold leaf gilding for matte finish helps to increase the effect of mother-of-pearl.
The design of this lacquer jewelry line takes its inspiration from Art Déco – a luxury style characterized by rich colors, bold geometric shapes and lavish ornamentation.
Eggshell inlay is the main feature of this collection. Being one of traditional lacquer techniques, it requires skill, meditative attention and an eye for detail in order to achieve consistency and a flow of movement in the pattern. One beautiful aspect of this material is that different people create very different expressions of eggshell as artisan and material work together to make each unique piece.
The contrast between black (lacquer) and white (eggshell) makes the collection chic and elegant.
