Akillis Jewelry with a bang
Caroline Gaspard founded Akillis, her jewelry house, in Lyon, in 2007. The jeweler draws her inspiration from pop culture's movies, music scene and more. From the gun bullet, razor blade and target that compose the “Mini Bang Bang” ring collection, to the white gold and diamonds of her Cruella line, or her Cleopatra-inspired collection launched in 2016. It takes a perfect blend between traditional techniques and modern technologies to create such pieces. Thankfully, the designer uses laser welder and hydraulic polisher to enhance her sharp lines and fiery thematics. Fierce.
