The 'Secret Garden' jewellery box by Solange Azagury-Partridge
Featured as part of the 'Metamorphosis' collection
You aren't imagining things – this is a greenhouse of enamel plique-à-jour with gold structures forming geometric motifs, as well as the 'Secret Garden' collection by cult jewellery designer, Solange Azagury-Partridge.
As delicate as the small bird on the roof that's ready to fly away, the walls – once taken apart – form two identical cuffs for the wrist and the roof becomes a bowl for marshmallows. The floor is paved with diamond, opal and obsidian and, when pulled out, its centre becomes a pendant.
A miniature Orangerie inside the piece displays trees and a bench, and some shoes that have been left behind after a party. An umbrella is left in an elephant foot stand "in case it is raining when guests leave"... A hothouse sittings on a lotus leaf made of rose quartz and aventurine, no less. That's our kind of party.
