Stephen Webster x Tracey Emin
The meeting of two modern icons – jewellery brand Stephen Webster and British artist Tracey Emin – results in a collection of wearable art imbued with romance and covetable, collectible appeal.
Founder Stephen Webster’s relationship with Tracey Emin is a story in itself; meeting as teenagers at Margate’s Atlantis Disco, the pair forged a strong friendship that has spanned almost 40 years. The opening of Stephen Webster’s first flagship store in Beverly Hills in 2010 firmly cemented the pair’s friendship; Emin created a bespoke ‘I Promise To Love You’ neon heart installation – a signature aesthetic for which she is famed – and the idea for a collaborative jewellery collection was born.
“When I started to look at Tracey’s work, I knew that so much of it would translate perfectly into jewellery,” says Stephen Webster. Using her own handwriting as a starting point for the collection of 18-karat gold necklaces, rings and bracelets, Emin says: “Working with Stephen was a dream. He interpreted my drawings and my work in a very natural, graceful way.” Understated in comparison to Stephen Webster’s usually-dramatic aesthetic, the pieces are designed to be mix-and-match treasures that can be layered together to create your own custom look.
Available to buy in-store in the Fine Jewellery Room, Ground Floor, you can browse the collection online.
