'Struthio No4' ring (gold plated)
For this collection, the designer was inspired by the texture of animal skins, mainly ostrich and buffalo skin. The shapes remain straightforward and simple, so that the textures can speak for themselves. This signet ring has a smooth and polished surface and textured sides.

Espèces is an engaging reflection on life, death and timelessness by Brussels-based designer Marie Artamonoff. Referencing the tribalism and intimate nature of jewels, Espèces wishes to reconcile the dead and the living, transcending the usual failure of binary views.
Considered the architecture of living forms, animal bones are a starting point for the Belgian designer, wanting to return to the essence of life. Bones are, by definition, a fundamental part of our being, as they provide the necessary structure for organs. They are, in fact, the truth within, the ultimate foundation one goes back to in order to reconnect with one’s nature.
Marie's interest for zoology was the perfect excuse to launch the line, which happened in a rather organic way. The idea for the collection first came in September 2011, when Marie purchased an intriguing animal skull. Leaving all negative symbolism behind and using bones for their graphic qualities, Marie creates necklaces, earrings, rings, bracelets and other striking art pieces which can be worn by women and men. Using silver, gold and bronze, the pieces are made in Brussels and Antwerp. Conceived as a permanent line which will be updated every six months, Espèces is keen on experimenting with new techniques and materials, taking the line into unknown directions.
