Me Likey: Dandi Maestre
"To go with the Greta Constantine Fall 2013 collection, accessories designer Dandi Maestre created these amazing animal skull necklaces that are yelling at me loudly to acquire one – immediately!
“Through my work, I want to create a dialogue with the natural world. Each one of my pieces is handmade from elements found in shores, rivers, jungles and forests,” explains the designer. “I incorporate these shapes in my designs and make very large extreme pieces with a natural look and a flowing and curving appearance, with a minimum of industrial processes. It is all about the experimental. I design extreme objects, bold and beautiful, pieces of sculpture rather than jewellery that create breathtaking statements. I see my pieces as artwork, where there isn’t anything too outrageous.”
Amazing, though. Rawr & RAWR again.
