Update – October 2018
The Akina Collection – Started in Peru, this collection is inspired by my 8 months in the Amazon. My wish was to include as much natural elements and local materials as possible. Most of the jewelry from this collection are one of a kind, each one is accompanied by its small hand-stitched Shipibo fabric pouch, a tribe of the Peruvian Amazon. Today I’m back in France to offer you this collection that will continue to grow, the resonance of this long journey still present in me. ♥
Update – July 2018
It’s been a couple of months since I left France to travel and experience life in Peru to search for new inspirations and learn new techniques. Each jewelry is entirely handmade by myself with peruvian materials.
I also make the little pouches, they are made with a Shipibo printed textile, a tribe from the Amazon.
With these unique creations, I want to make you travel, bring you a touch of exoticism, and make pieces with local materials that are not found in France.
A brief story of Celine H2o
Born in 2013, Celine H2o features exotic and colorful inspirations. Each piece is entirely handmade by the designer of the French brand, Celine Heiligenstein who likes to follow her inspiration of the moment in creating unconventional, bold and eclectic pieces.
The mix and match of different styles, textures and materials is an integral part of the brand. Wood, ropes, semi-precious stones, colorful threads and gold mingles together to create an original piece of jewelry.
By Celine’s open-mindedness to the world and creativity, each of her collections is an invitation to travel.
After a Master’s degree in arts and culture as well as numerous travels around the world, Celine felt the need to express herself, to give body to her ideas and she began making jewelry. Therefore, she decides to follow her intuition that pushes her to create and launched her own high fashion jewelry brand. Aztec, ethnic or boho chic inspired, Celine H2o creations are a mix and match of different styles.
