Husam el Odeh at Harrods

On Thursday 15th April, to celebrate the launch of the new Acne boutique at Harrods, Husam el Odeh curated an in-store retrospective of his work as an illustrator and jeweller. Handsome Husam held court, surrounded by a bevvy of tall, ethereal, Acne-clad people and he had - very kindly - put my book on a pedestal, opened to the chapter about him.
Husam does a nice line in re-working found objects (pencils, watches, glass stoppers, old rings) into his work, which often blurs the line between jewellery and fashion. Click on the images below to see what the pieces are made of.

The spiky pendant in the background was made from pencils for fashion designer Siv Støldal's Aw06 menswear show.

Thanks to Donna Watson and her new iPhone for the Harrods shots.
