THE ARCHITECTURE OF INSECTS #1

Pre-release lookbook

The Architecture Of Insects proposes we shift our constantly skyward gaze downwards, down to the hidden worlds beneath our feet. Not just to these small, vastly diverse, and bewitching creatures - often overlooked and unseen underfoot - but also to the imperceptible and miraculous within.

THE COLLECTION

Hannah's first and much-anticipated limited edition collection celebrates the remarkable diversity present in the order of Coleoptera (commonly known as beetles), which contains more species than any other order in the entire animal kingdom. It channels the vast array of their exquisite, intricate designs, and symbology. Each piece is numbered and entirely made by hand, using ethically sourced diamonds, precious stones, 18k gold, sterling silver, and natural enamels. 

Shield Bug Ring

Hemiptera (Pentatomidae)

White, champagne, cognac and blue pavé diamonds with fire opals 18k gold and black enamel 

AWARENESS & SYMBOLOGY

Ancient Egyptian and Latin cultures placed great symbolic significance on these creatures, they wore them to evoke their earth-dwelling, grounding spirits. In this respect, the beetle is renowned for carrying messages that bring our attention to renewal, maturity, and the subliminal influences of the invisible side of life.
