Bord De L’ Eau studio combines unique design and exceptional craftsmanship with unrefined materials to deliver stylish jewelry hand made of silver with gold and platinum plating options. The inspiration is sourced from natural forms and shapes. Bord De L’ Eau design philosophy is based on the simplicity of an abstract form, an attempt to recreate primitive cosmic patterns. The idea lies at the gap between void and presence. In this sense, reshaping volumes to subtle shapes that approach postmodern aesthetics of everyday life jewelry.
Mirrors | reflecting your truth
Mirrors reflect light which allows them to reflect the world around them. In spiritual concepts, light is a powerful symbol of wisdom and awareness.
As a consequence, mirrors are symbols and carriers of truth and reflect what our truth is. Psychology tends to be more critical of mirrors which represent the barrier between conscious and unconscious and therefore, by looking deep into a mirror, we look deep inside ourselves in a conscious way, following a thoughts process.
Sphere | The spherical shaped reflection reveals ourselves and aesthetics
while it depicts ‘hidden’ worlds and deforms idols,
just like the ‘fisheye’ photography lens does.
Sphere is Bord De L’ Eau representative metal series, unveiling the brand’s design simplicity though created with extra smooth, fine and detailed process. The idea is based on mirror’s reflectivity. With the sphere as a primordial situation and the inner dynamic of the mirror a visual echo is reproduced by images that expand the dimension of space.
Flap | waving effect, caused by the physical movement of the body
Bord De L’ Eau Flap series of earrings is characterized by a new design approach and style. Its main feature is the movement. Thin and intertwined surfaces, with circular and semicircular, square, rectangular, rhombic and banner shape, are attached along one edge to a central axis that permits a kind of rotation and gives the sense of waving up and down.
This waving effect, caused by the physical movement of the body, creates a flapping sensation (flap, pulse, fly). The earrings-flaps, smooth with no folds, cause refraction and an interesting play with the light. Shimmers of shine are becoming witnesses of the luminous glory, a reflection that mirrors the power of light.
‘Acme’ is Bord De L’ Eau new ring collection with its name derived from the Greek world meaning the point at which something reaches the upper and extreme of its development. It took an entire year of hard work focused on design and fabrication for the collection to be released.
Bord De L’ Eau Acme collection is designed to celebrate geometry. The earrings, entirely made of silver, are incorporating geometrical shapes into elegant, minimalistic and traditional statement pieces.
The rings, entirely made of silver, are incorporating geometrical shapes into elegant, minimalistic and angular statement pieces. They give a feeling of action, tension or even aggression symbolizing strength and conflict.
Eclipse | in an abstract way, each earring represents the unique bounds and correlations between nature primitive forms
‘Eclipse’ is Bord De L’ Eau new earrings collection, an ode to one of the most beautiful natural phenomena. The design is based on a postmodern type of celestial elements like sun, moon, stars combined with basic forms like cycles, rectangles and triangles. The shape tends to send a positive emotional message of harmony, connection and community.
The process of the design and production of Bord De L’ Eau jewelry is in constant motion. The series are evolving while the creation is enriched with new techniques and ideas. Bord De L’ Eau artifacts mirror firstly love for contemporary art, philosophy of continuous artistic motion, research on jewelry trends, constant engagement with the jewelry and participation in exhibitions in Greece and abroad.
