Boodles is delighted to unveil its latest collection of Exceptional Jewels; ‘The Poetry of Landscape’. Inspired by aspects of Britain’s natural landscape, climatic conditions and seasonal change, these creations bring together the main sources of Boodles design aesthetic and the ways in which it has developed since Head of Design Rebecca Hawkins joined the company 25 years ago.
The collection aspires to capture a sense of the natural scenery that defines Britain and is poised between being a direct representation of the subject matter and an expressive, abstract interpretation. Hawkins states ‘inspiration comes from our environment as seen first-hand and also through the eyes of some of Britain’s greatest artists, who have been chosen for their modern sensibilities, their feeling for atmosphere and their ability to identify with the spirit of a place.’
The various suites of jewellery that make up this collection weave together new themes and insights alongside influences from Boodles past creations. Enticing gemstones ranging from pale pink opals to moonstones, peridots, pink diamonds, green tourmalines, soft blue aquamarines and yellow beryls hint at pale sunlight, celebrate the beauty of cool misty greys and the vivacity of new green foliage; characteristics that make up the very essence of British landscape and inspirations which are integral to Boodles design aesthetic. The muse is a poetic convention and for this collection that role is performed by the British landscape itself.
In order to fully illustrate the sources of Rebecca’s inspiration, Boodles has commissioned British photographer Martin Morrell to capture a range of these scenes around the United Kingdom. ‘The Poetry of Landscape’ will launch with an accompanying coffee table book, including these specially commissioned fine art photographs.
