Daphne Guinness Is Dead…

July 11, 2011

…but not really (sigh of relief – take a breath)…

Daphne Guinness in collaboration with jeweler Shaun Leane worked on an 18-carat hand crafted, diamond encrusted, armour glove, revealed at a private party hosted by Jay Jopling last night in London. So how did she decide to showcase her creation…as a gothic sleeping beauty of course…

“I think the world is divided into two kinds of people, those who revel in embracing strangers, and those who hide. When I was a child I fell into the latter category, and despite people’s perceptions, to a large extent I still do. Perhaps this explains my lifelong fascination with knights.”  – Daphne Guinness

“We wanted to push the boundaries of jewelry design.” – Shaun Leane

“I dislike the idea of jewellery being like a price tag around someone’s neck. It needs to be something else – and there is something extremely magical about armour.”     -Daphne Guinness

…I truly love this woman!
