With flowers and vines that intertwine, Convolvulus sepium (also known as Calystegia sepium) is a bindweed plant that freely climbs and grows. It is seen here through the prism of fairy-tales, in whichone can imagine birds and butterflies frolicking. In this collection, the floral motif, whose Latin name means “beautiful covering”, has inspired Aida Bergsen’s garden of jewels, a tender throwback to her childhood memories. “It brings me back to our garden in Cyprus,” Aida says. “The plant itself also symbolizes healing,as in covering wounds with good memories – especially my wounds after losing people I love, primarily my father, Fikri Direkoglu,who was a fine artist who always encouraged me in my work.” HerConvolvulus Sepium collection is directly evocative of Turquerie style, which celebrates orientalist and Turkish aesthetics, so fashionable in western societies from the 16th to the 19th century. Highlights include large hero pieces,as well as rings in 18K gold set with precious tapered-cut gemstones and vitreous enamel.
