Julie Van Den Berghe Jewelry


When I went to IncuFashion, a local fashion show for and by up-and-coming fashion designers and lovers, I discovered Julie Van Den Berghe. As you may remember, I even wrote a bit about her designs in the article about the fashion show! I was especially interested in the necklaces she had the models wear. I thought they were very futuristic, stylish and wearable, so I would like to share them with you. 

Julie Van Den Berghe is a 24 year old graduate from the Fashion Academy in Ghent, Belgium. Her jewelry collection is called "SHAPES" and it is the first one she has designed. She was inspired by childhood drawings that she made and turned them into 3D figures. This is how these geometric necklaces came to life and she even links the names of the necklaces with mathematical angles.

1. OCTA   2. ICOSA   3. PYRAMID   4. PYRAMID COLOR   5. TETRA

As you can see all of the five necklaces are completely different, both in color and shape, but show a strong connection because of their geometrical shapes. I also love that some necklaces (like TETRA) really seems to be 3D; talk about optical illusion! Yet they still remain simple statement necklaces that could be worn in so many ways. The necklaces are not limited to the colors seen in the picture above, so you can decide which color and shape would work best for you.

I wanted to give you an impression of Julie Van Den Berghe as well, so here is a picture of her working on a model before the IncuFashion show. The SHAPES collection truly is a combination of innovative and futuristic works but done in such a simple and toned-down manner that it is appropriate for any stylish look. Be sure to take a look at her website and webshop as the necklaces are for sale in your preferred shape and color from €25 and onward. What do you think of this up-and-coming talent? And would you wear something from the SHAPES collection as a statement necklace?

  2. These are fun for those who like statement necklaces! I like how "structured" they are, if you know what I mean!

  3. These are unique creations and a great idea for neck pieces. I actually love stylish necklaces but never really buy them as I'm used to wearing simple clothes and accessories when going to work. Maybe someday when my mood tells me to wear pieces like these, I'd give it a try. :)
