Céline Cousteau and her Designer Edition remind us what it means to be human -- to belong to the "human tribe." Her design is inspired by tribal patterns either painted or tattooed on bare skin, part of a long tradition in which it has always been natural for man to decorate himself, be it for reasons of aesthetics, status, or celebration.
Wearing jewelry is a desire which is immanent to the human being. Céline Cousteau observed this during her studies in the Brazilian rainforest and decided to make it the central theme of her second Designer Edition for Swarovski.
Paradoxically, it was Swarovski’s advanced technology and expertise that allowed Céline Cousteau to realize her design ideas. "When I work with Swarovski, I have the feeling that I am working with people who understand my ideas -- who deliver the message," she says. "When you work with crystal, you can literally see your concepts come to light."
