CROW’S NEST - Bringing fine jewelry to a new contemporary platform
CROW’S NEST is the phenomenal fine jewellery line by Daniel-Phillip Belevitch. A dynamic young designer of Russian heritage, with a unique eye for contemporary design, Belevitch created his debut collections through his vision to celebrate uncompromising quality and impeccable craftsmanship.
Daniel-Philip founded Crow’s Nest with a desire to fulfil the void in imaginative fine jewellery for both men and women, and thus created his first collections, ‘Dream Feather’, ‘Believe it or Not’, ‘Deluxe Russian Grooves’, ‘Jungle Fever’, ‘Who Needs A Rose?’,‘Snatch’, ‘Secret Keeper’ and ‘Amulet’. His ethos is to create striking fine jewellery to satisfy the wildest of imaginations and specializes in bespoke jewellery design, creating pieces beyond limitations.
Nature plays inspiration to Crow’s Nest, capturing the magnificence of our natural world into elegant statement pieces. The majesty of jewels is showcased throughout the exquisite collections using only the finest precious and semi stones including white and black diamonds, garnet, blue topaz and also black spinell beads in his first collection. Each piece is set in 18kt gold with a vivid pear shaped green tsavorite, signature to each CROW’S NEST design.
“My interpretation of the fine art and antiques which filled my home as a child influenced my vision for the jewellery designs that you see in my collections today. I believe the best inspiration comes from the past, embracing the history that has shaped our presence today. My collections are not confined to any mould, I want each piece to be visually breathtaking in design and bring fine jewellery to a new contemporary platform.”
How do you approach a new collection? Where do your ideas evolve from?
I gather ideas for new collections on a daily basis, everything from nature to dreams. I tend to always have a new collection and mind and cant wait to start creating. I try to make each pieces unique and one of a kind so a lot of thoughts and consideration goes in to each piece.
Are you a realist or fantasist?
Fantasist but sometime have to be more of a realist for the clients sake.
How big is the accessory business today from when you started?
I feel like its constantly growing and gets more and more impact. People tend to be bolder and more extravagant with their jewellery choices these days, which i of course support a 100%
What materials and techniques do you favor?
Diamonds is the obvious option as it makes every piece of jewellery step up a notch, but i have a great love for pear shaped tsavorites. It is a stone that i tend to place on most of my creations on a random place to give it that little extra.
Do you have a favorite accessory designer that you admire?
Glenn Spiro, is a jeweller that i admire. He puts a lot of effort and design in each piece that he releases, and i believe that is essential to be able to create something beautiful and timeless..
What inspired your current collection?
Uniqueness. My new collection is called "One and only " and is based about unique and special gemstones. The idea is to enhance big rocks and almost let them do the talking. The stones range from 50 carats to 250 carats..
And its a limited collection with each piece being limited to one.
What’s next for Crow's Nest Jewels ?
The launch of the new collection "One and only" and also a new project called "Raven by Crows Nest. It is going to be a under line from Crowsnest, with more affordable but yet just as much design invested jewellery.
