Espéces is Marie Artamonoff and Sébastien Lacomblez, a Belgian combination of an artist and a jewelry designer.
Inspired by the graphic qualities of bones, they create a line of unisex jewelry. The collection is an engaging reflection on life, death and timelessness, wanting to reconcile the dead and the living. The idea behind the collection arose when Marie purchased an animal skull for Sébastien’s birthday and made a single cast for herself.
Espèces reveals the intricacy and delicate aspects of bones, without removing any of their mystery. Turning them into desirable and aesthetically pleasing objects, bones become unique artifacts, which challenge key notions of time and mortality. And which look good around your neck.
