Boucheron exhibits with botanical artist Makoto Azuma in Tokyo

The new L'Artisan du Reve exhibition in Tokyo is a collaboration between jewellery house Boucheron and Japanese botanical artist Makoto Azuma.

Boucheron-x-Azuma--Collier-Bouquet-d-Ailes

Flowers and jewels come together in an exhibition in Tokyo called 'Boucheron & Azuma, L'Artisan du Reve'. For this showing of fine jewels inspired by nature, the Parisian jeweller has collaborated with botanical artist Makoto Azuma to create dreamy landscapes inhabited by diamond winged butterflies, bejewelled dragonflies and precious peacocks. The centrepiece is the much admired 'Bouquet d'Ailes', a necklace quivering with pink, lilac and orange butterfly wings set 'en tremlant' that sits lightly on the neck. 

Makoto Azuma, the esteemed haute couture florist and plant sculptor, has created alluring environments to showcase Boucheron's latest haute joaillerie pieces, which will be on display at the High Jewelry Museum and Café at Café/Space, Roppongi Hills, Tokyo. Entrance to 'L'Artisan du Reve' is free, and the exhibition runs until Sunday 26 May.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
