New York's Visnja Jewels debuts at Maxfield
Visnja Jewels, a New York-based fine jewelry collection designed by Australian-born Visnja Brdar, is now available on the West Coast -- at L.A.'s emporium of avant-garde fashion, Maxfield.
The spiritual-minded collection of diamond, platinum and 18-karat white gold brooches, cuff links, pendants and earrings is "based on the power of symbolism," said Brdar. The brand's first collection, available now, uses three graphic symbols: a heart, a lion and a set of wings. The pieces are essentially line drawings of these symbols wrought in sparkling diamonds.
Brdar, who has also worked as a freelance creative director for companies including Van Cleef & Arpels, believes that, "there's a need for fresh expression in fine jewelry today, and that jewelry can be more than just decorative," she noted. "It can be infused with powerful meaning yet still be super-chic. I created the jewels because I needed the symbols for my own fortification."
The limited-edition pieces, available at Maxfield boutiques in Los Angeles and Malibu, will set you back a bit (brooches are $33,500), but will ensure that you stand out in a crowd.
