Introducing the Lotus Arts De Vivre Cheetah collection, inspired by the jungle’s king of speed.
Known for exquisite, animal-themed creations, Thai jewellery and home collection brand Lotus Arts De Vivre has a strong global repute for mysterious and beautiful accessories. Hand-crafted from rare — and, might we say rather unusual — materials that go from horns to stingray leather, designs are one-of-a-kind, with heavy influences from traditional craftsmanship, and mesmerising nods to Asian mythology. The brand has recently unveiled a special Limited Edition Cheetah Collection — a carefully curated line that ranges from trendy home decor, to edgy jewellery pieces. Here’s everything you need to know.
Traditionally, the cheetah is regarded as the king of speed — with a striking quickness and streamlined form that symbolises elegance and formidability. Drawing inspiration from the novel A Cheetah’s Tale, written by Princess Michael of Kent about her relationship with her favourite cheetah pet as a child, the Lotus Arts De Vivre Cheetah Collection brings to light, the unique characteristics of the cheetah.
Delicately crafted silver cheetahs are meticulously combined with wood, horns, seashells and more, to create a collection that is at once luxurious and undeniably different. Jewellery-wise, you’ll see the likes of stunning pieces made from black ebony, for a bold enhancement of any look. A mala beaded bracelet — a nod to the rosary beads of Mahayana Buddhists, which are said to protect the wearer and keep bad luck at bay — is decorated with a silver cheetah sporting striking diamond eyes. The hand-carved black wood ring, on the other hand, is accentuated by a sterling silver cheetah, with eyes set with rose-cut diamonds.
Much thought has been put into the home decor items, resulting in statement pieces created to liven the atmosphere of your home. Options range from a dreamy mother of pearl plate, to an outstretched silver cheetah sporting a buffalo horn bowl on its back, and a teak wood bowl carved from the root of an ancient tree, upon which a silver cheetah rests.
