Screw It

Ileana Makri‘s fine jewellery collection, playfully titled “Screw It”, brings a certain tongue-in-cheek twist to the brand’s refined aesthetic, as well as a rather literal design concept. Diamond encrusted pave setting on 18k gold bolts that effectively screw on and off and are interchangeable, give the collection both it’s playfulness as well as "mechanical" function. Ileana's fondness for symbols and their meaning, plus an affinity for finding beauty in everyday objects permeate the general feel of the collection – the idea of sublimating the tools and hardware that are subtly essential to our daily existence into objects of covetable and calibrated beauty.
