Henson – The Hunter (1of7)

12 August 2011 | No Comment

Jewellery isn’t disposable, it stays with you, on you or in your drawer, or with a friend or lover, forever. It is lost, found, worn again and passed around. Pieces of personal adornment remind people of chapters in their lives, they act as tokens to trigger memories of times, styles and desires present and past.

This year, Henson’s collection, Enta, embraces the concept of charms as chapters, telling the story of seven different characters, each profoundly powerful in different ways. Together, the seven can grant passage between our world and the world of the dead, but the heptad are not easily found, nor easily persuaded.

Henson’s collection is an exploration of the bribes and baubles these seven mystic figures have garnered as payment over the aeons.

Like a book, the story of these seven will unveil itself slowly. Every six weeks, Henson will reveal a new character, and along with them, their treasures.

The first in this series is the hunter, a young man whose stillness and solemnity belies his strength. The hunter is attracted to the takes of the chase, claiming prize catches like teeth, bones, leather and feathers from those who seek to pay him. His collection remains rough hewn, close to the state of nature from which he derives his sustenance, with sharpened flashes of bronze, copper and sterling silver. The hunter’s deep calm is represented with lapis, while his bloodlust spills through in sanguine garnets.

Each chapter in Henson’s series will open with a unique image – a photographic portrait of the chapter’s protagonist produced in collaboration with some of the label’s favourite artists.

This slow release project will ultimately culminate in an exhibition of the photographs produced, and the objects that inspired them. Later chapters will include Henson’s first foray into fine jewellery, utilising both gold and precious stones.

Henson’s narrative allows the designers to explore every facet of their label’s aesthetic, while at the same time maintaining a continuity of form.
