LeJu at Royal Academy of Arts
LeJu at the Royal Academy of Arts
Colourful, vegetable ivory jewellers, LeJu, will be sold at the Royal Academy of Arts from 23 January - 18 April 2010 to complement the much-anticipated Van Gogh exhibition – the first of its kind to take place in over 40 years.
Three of LeJu’s popular designs will be available for purchase: The Bubble necklace, the Flor necklace, and Polo earrings. The passion, creativity and vibrancy behind LeJu’s jewellery will be a perfect addition to Van Gogh’s own use of colour and complexity.
When asked how the partnership came into being, LeJu’s Dutch-born designer Lenny Trines revealed, “LeJu jewellery is a permanent fixture at the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam and our collection was spotted by one of the Royal Academy of Arts organisers who thought it would be the perfect fit to sell alongside Van Gogh’s work at the exhibition. We’re really proud to have our jewellery at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, especially since we are London-based.”
Leju jewellery is made with sustainable components from an Amazonian palm tree species and crafted into beautiful designs full of character and colour. The vegetable ivory is thoughtfully combined with sterling silver, recycled agate, lava beads, and a host of semi-precious stones to create unique pieces of art in their own right that represent a positive connection to the planet and exhibit the highest quality of craftsmanship.
