With her roots in architecture, Jean Won's debut jewelry collection Jean & Merce explores materiality, form and composition.
Won transforms her love of collage, weaving and knotting all things industrial and feminine into a 12 category collection, featuring brass chains, gold vermeil, fabrics, string, chunky rough stones to more delicate precious and semi precious stones.
Won's debut collection features flirty bracelets, statement necklaces and hair accessories inspired by the style of Art Nouveau. Jean weaves her signature color rose through her collection and adheres to a vintage infused palette consisting of ambers, rich greens, blacks and grey.
Won envisioned Jean & Merce as a line of jewelry accessible to all, committed to bringing glamour to any outfit.
