The jewellery of Husam el Odeh

Today I have been doing some reading of a wonderful book I received for christmas, Fashion Jewellery: Catwalk and Couture by Maia Adams . Its a great book which explores many different jewellery designers and their work, and I definitely recommend that you check it out if you have a chance 🙂

Personally, I have always loved jewellery, sculptural or more conventional pieces- I find it all fascinating. I’m specialising in jewellery design in my sculpture class at college at the moment, and i’m loving every minute of it.

So, whilst flicking through this book, I landed on a page of Husam el Odeh’s work, and it instantly captured my attention.

Odeh, originally from Germany, moved to London to study Fashion Jewellery at Middlesex university. His work focuses around “the re-imagining of everyday objects in relation to the human body”, and I think his pieces are stunning.

He has collaborated with other designers to create jewellery-like chain dresses, shoes, and recently has even started designing sunglasses. And the good news is if any of you wanted to get your hands on his jewellery, some pieces of his recent collections have been pretty affordable, ranging from £100-£800.

These photos are just a few examples of my favourite pieces of his work, but you should definitely take a look at his website, there are some really beautiful things on there. 🙂

Ok that’s it for today!

À bientôt!!

  1. Wow. The jewelry peices are pretty unique and interesting. I love accessorizing as much as the next girl, but I doubt I could ever pull off jewelry that bold. Though I do wish I could! Haha.
    I loved the post, it was a very interesting read.

  2. Oooh those are all really pretty but I have to say that photo with the rings used as a daisy chain is really interesting. I’m a fan of more delicate pieces as opposed to big chunky statement necklaces. Lovely read 🙂 Much Love, Karen.
