Description

A natural Green Jasper stone, chosen for its colour and strength. The surface of the stone segments have a rough texture on the bottom and a smoothly cut top, thus the different shades of green appear clearly. This pair of cuff-links is part of the ‘Minimal’ series which takes a more sober and convenient direction. By integrating more basic elements (smaller dimension, simplicity), these pieces become more approachable as a wearable jewel. When not worn, the cuff-links are hosted in their stone of origin instead of in a box.

Gemma ex Lapide –
Gemma ex Lapide is a project of Studio DŌ, founded by Dana Seachuga and Octave Vandeweghe. The Latin phrase ‘Gemma ex Lapide’ could be translated as ‘jewel gained from a stone’ or ‘gemstone extracted from a rock’. The project explores the core relationship between stones and jewellery, while it also bridges between body and space.

For this project, Studio DŌ works with stones in an experimental way, focussing on the unique elements each stone possesses, while also reflecting on the origin of (gem)stones in jewellery. This results in a series of contemporary objects that still express authenticity. These objects function both as sculptures, and as pieces of jewelry to adorn the body.

About the designer


Studio DO

Studio DŌ | Label & Labour   Studio DO is a stone cutting atelier founded by Dana Seachuga and Octave Vandeweghe. These two creatives work independently: Dana as a jewelry maker and Octave as an artist. For Studio DO they joined forces and share their creative visions and expertise.   Based in Antwerp, the city of diamonds, Studio DO | Label & Labour is connecting to the city’s history related to stone cutting. Although the industry of diamond cutting is very small in relation to the past, the city of Antwerp is still an icon in diamond-business. The craft of cutting (semi-)precious gemstones on the other hand, disappeared almost entirely. The traditional (and often old fashioned) craft is labour intensive and the affordability of local production is troublesome.   Driven by their affection for stone cutting, Studio DO is investigating the craft to deliver a more contemporary approach and to make it functionable within the current markets. Whether based on old or new techniques, they search for progressive possibilities, complemented by a fresh design approach. Therefore they research how to refine traditional techniques towards a more sober making process. While they also learn how to make use of new stone related technologies, in order to make unique objects or smaller series of objects. Further on they study other crafts to find alternative solutions and overthrow conventions.   Studio DO | Label & Labour works on design projects, and takes commissions related to art, stones, objects and jewelry. Label & Labour stand along each other as one, becoming inseparable.

Curated by

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
