Helix was sparked by a request from the Dali Museum for a collection celebrating renowned designer Elsa Schiaparelli. Like Schiaparelli pieces, this collection is haute costume jewelry with the richness and impact of fine jewelry. The pieces have an exceptional weight and feel to them. Each piece is created from exquisite handmade Italian brass rope chain which is heavily plated in bright sterling silver or rich 14K gold, right here in the USA. These stately pieces complement exhibits of First Ladies fashion, vintage costume jewelry, and even biological exhibits featuring DNA—that is why we called it Helix.
