Atelier Feliz

Lately we’ve been obsessing about all the pretty handmade jewelry from Atelier Feliz! So we couldn’t wait writing a blog post about her. Let us give you a small introduction: Feliz (1993) is a young jewelry designer from Antwerp. She studied a bachelor of jewelry design at Sint Lucas Antwerp. After she graduated last year she decided to bring out her own collection. Feliz likes to work with everything pretty, so it’s no surprise beauty is very important to her. She takes her inspiration from nature and plants, like modern classics as the Cactus or the Monstera Pertusum.

(in the pictures you can see the outlines of Antwerp) Every single piece is completely handmade by Feliz in precious materials like silver and gold. Be sure to check out her Facebook and Instagram!   All pictures are by Michelle Serdons       Advertisements

By making these choices it was possible to create a chair that costs less than €10 in the purchase of raw materials. PLUS it’s 100% ecological! Except for  the ecological friendliness there are other important functions of Corten, such as the material used to bind the open, steel frame together. She searched for materials strong enough to hold the force of the open structure (which was found through a company in Belgium that annually produces 7.5 tons of conveyor waste)   Interesting side note: This company has to pay to deposit their waste abroad. So Michelle realized  that their ‘waste’ was a gold mine for her, and she could gather all the materials to get Corten realized. Throughout the development process Michelle …
