The Wick - Silvia Furmanovich, Marquetry wood jewellery box

Object Silvia Furmanovich, Marquetry wood jewellery box

Since launching her eponymous brand in 1998, Silvia Furmanovich has become one of the most celebrated jewellery designers in the business. Her visionary designs combine her love of innovative craftsmanship with her wide-ranging inspirations, from ancient cultures and unusual materials (think woven bamboo, vintage lacquer and oxidized copper) to far-flung travel destinations and artisanal techniques. The result is splendid, with colour, geometry and trompe l’oeil effects taking centre stage.

Crafted from evergreen oak, this jewellery box with geometric design incorporates the ancient technique of marquetry, where shapes are meticulously hand-cut from wood and arranged into patterns. ‘In this technological world, everything is being made by machines and we must all fight to keep traditional handicrafts alive,’ Furmanovich has said. We couldn’t agree more. With just one box left, it’s an add-to-basket-now type of situation.
