'Hommage' is a collection of mourning jewelry, a homage to that very special person who has passed away.
Keeping your lost beloved one close in your heart, is one thing for sure, but sometimes you want something tangible from that person who's no longer there. After my mom died, I wanted to create a precious jewel to always have her very near. That inspired me to make this collection of mourning jewelry. Putting some ashes, a piece of hair, or a piece of clothing in a jewel has been done since Victorian times. So why not put it in a fancy jewel. This collection is in hommage of my beloved mom Terese.
The Hommage collection is entirely handmade in my workshop in Brussels, and is available in 925 silver, 18K white, yellow or rose gold. The remains are being put inside of the jewel.
The making of these special pieces is one of the most emotional parts of my job, and it's without doubt the part I love doing the most.
If you like to have a mourning jewel made, or if you want more information about it, feel free to contact me.
The first Hommage collection is the Lyra collection. It refers to the Lyra constellation, which has the brightest of stars.
