Swarovski Genuine Topaz Embellish Sculptural Jewels & Watches for the Discerning Woman
At Hedera, the company established by the Koukjian family in 1900 in Geneva, Switzerland, the act of creation is nothing less than to forge a new vision of perfection through a unique combination of love and beauty. Only then can the result be worthy of the accolade of a true modern day masterpiece. For designer Cedric Koukjian, Hedera’s Artistic Supervisor, this is his mantra, and what he calls upon when taking pen to paper to conceive a new jewel.
As the son of well-known contemporary and conceptual artist, sculptor, jeweler and watch designer Pierre Koukjian, Cedric is ideally placed to carry the vision of Hedera’s uniquely vivid creations well into the future, and his masterpiece timepieces for the distinguished brand come to brilliant fruition with Swarovski genuine topaz.
At the heart of all Hedera watches is titanium, the corrosion resistant metal that though incredibly light is stronger than aluminum, copper or even iron. “Titanium is a very light metal so we can take artistic liberties when working with volumes and come up with bigger pieces that are very comfortable to wear,” states Cedric Koukjian. There is, however, a negative aspect. Titanium is also extremely hard making it difficult to work. Cedric continues: “Taming titanium to let it bow to the will of our craft has been an exercise in patience and skills that we could only achieve through rigorous work at our atelier in Switzerland. Transforming the hardness of titanium into a soft piece of jewelry is a feat akin to what one could only refer to as an act of alchemy.”
To complete his magic, Cedric has chosen Swarovski Gemstones genuine topaz to complement the empowering energy of titanium. This combination guarantees to dramatically emphasize a woman’s natural elegance and grace.
