About the Anton Heunis brand
Anton Heunis, jewellery brand, was found in 2004 in Spain. Within just five years it has managed to enter international market and now it is presented in the most exclusive department stores around the world.
Every piece of jewellery is handmade in the workshop in the centre of Madrid, where the designer creates and develops his collections. Each piece is not like one another that gives unique character to each product. He refers to the jewellery as "something personal, something intimate and should b e made with love".
Monnier Frères is proud to present this unique handmade jewellery brand.
With Bachelor degree in Fine Arts from the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa, Anton Heunis also gained a Master degree under the supervision of the artist and professor Otto Künzli.
However, his inspiration started long time before with his grandmother, who was always covered with beautiful jewellery and enameled hair brushes. Anton Heunis works a lot with semi-precious stones such as Lapis, Agatha, Onyx or Swarovski crystals. Some of the pieces are then gilded with 22 carat gold. “Modern-vintage” has become the trademark look of the Anton Heunis brand that is recognizable by many famous magazines.
Winter 2012 Collection
The brand draws its inspirations from everyday life. However, the style also reinterprets the glamour motives of the different periods from the past, from 30s to 60s, as well as the inspirations from futuristic movies.
Inspired by such movies like Blade Runner and Avatar, Anton Heunis’ Winter 2012 collection reflects futuristic and organic shapes. The collection also includes the motives of the Alice in Wonderland story developed through different kinds and colors of crystals implemented to the pieces.
