Crystal Clear: Andree Putman’s Fantastic Flowers Line for Swarovski Crystallized
Beloved interior designer Andrée Putman looked to nature as inspiration for her new “Fantastic Flowers” line for Swarovski Crystallized, a collection of six unique crystal cuts available this month. From lotus flowers to lilies, orchids and gingko leaves, Putman immortalizes the naturally majestic lines and curves of nature’s most exquisite blooms. Each piece in the Fantastic Flowers collection is cut so as to reflect and refract light in an intriguing way that furthers its mysterious aura.
The collection consists of the following cuts: the Lily Cut, a bulbous tear shape made using a clear “Satin” crystal; the Orchid Cut, a three-petal wonder in a warm “Golden Shadow” hue; the Dragonfly Cut, an asymmetrical spread-winged beauty in an oceanic, “Meridian Blue” shade; the Gingko Leaf Cut, the most amorphous cut in the collection, which was made using a deep gray crystal hue dubbed “Silver Night;” the Lotus Cut, a raised, pentagonal pendant made using “Silver Night” colored crystal; and the Zinnia Cut, which is shaped more like a perched butterfly than a blossoming flower, and is available in a light silver crystal shade.
The limited-edition line (only 1500 pieces were produced) is available as loose element cuts (pendants which can be customized according to the customer’s wants and needs), or as ready-to-wear jewelry pieces, such as the above-pictured Blossoming Orchid Necklace and Shimmering Gingko Necklace.
Andrée Putman’s Fantastic Flowers for Swarovski Crystallized Blossoming Orchid Necklace, $100, and Shimmering Gingko Necklace, $84. Available exclusively at the New York Swarovski Crystallized store and at Swarovski-Crystallized.com
