The story that surrounds this jewelry collection by Le Buisson is truly unique. The project started when the Le Buisson founders' friend decided that she wanted to melt down all of her old jewelry and create something totally different. The woman claimed that it would "symbolically wipe out her past at the end of a love affair."

The French designer Matali Crasset was chosen to design the figures of a tiny scuba diver, a person with wings and someone riding a unicycle. All of the pieces feature a gorgeous colored stone. Matali Crasset was photographed by Aurelien Mole as she modeled the jewelry. The photo shoot was inspired by the 1920s actress Louise Brooks.

Petra Mrzyk, Jean François Moriceau and Geneviève Gauck are the other designers who also helped with the Le Buisson project. Stats for Symbolic Jewelry Projects Trending: Older & Mild
