We stock the most incredible range of fashion costume jewellery from Spanish based designer, Anton Heunis. He prides himself on being involved in every aspect of his jewellery label, and each piece is hand-crafted at his workshop in the historical city of Madrid. Anton designs all the collections and also over-sees the production within his studio. He draws inspiration from his passion for travel, cinema and the local Spanish history and culture, and recreates this into his trade mark ‘modern vintage’ look. All of Anton’s jewellery is made from a combination of semi-precious stones, Swarovski crystal, and vintage and traditionally hand-crafted German glass. The brass metal base of each piece is either gold, silver, rhodium or gunmetal-plated, and is nickel- and lead-free.
Born in a tiny desert town in South Africa, Anton initially studied fine art until he found his true calling studying Jewellery Design in Germany under the tutorage of the enfant terrible of the art jewellery scene, Otto Kuenzli.
He worked in London and collaborated on a variety of high profile collaborations with designers such as Roberto Cavalli and Emanuel Ungaro. It was at this time that he discovered Swarovski stones; trained as a gemologist he had always loved and appreciated gemstones but his work had been limited by price and rarity of them, a barrier the astonishing range of cuts and colours of Swarovski was able to break through with no compromise of the quality and effect of the piece.
Eventually Anton moved followed his heart to Madrid where in 2004 he founded his own company with husband and business partner, Mirko.
Anton Heunis believes the key to his success is that he has always adored women. He wants the women who wear his jewellery to be imbued with beauty and confidence and loves real women who wear his work with style and in a way that is uniquely their own.
