Anthony Roussel/Platinum Collection

Pure Jewels are currently half way through announcing which designers will be creating pieces for their Platinum Heritage Collection, this week revealing the third participant as Anthony Roussel.

Why I'm so interested in this designer in particular is that he's known for working in wood, almost as different a material you can get from platinum in appearance, properties and percieved 'value'.

I'm so intrigued to see what he comes up with - which I think must be part of the draw in choosing him. Will he transfer his sculptural, layered style to a whole new medium, or will working in platinum give him the opportunity to explore a whole new aesthetic?

His pieces are really quite stunning in real life, a truly original blend of craft and technology - my favourites are these bangles, the scale showing off the sweeping forms and curves.
