Elizabeth Taylor's Case
Asprey made a tan leather suitcase for the London-born film star Elizabeth Taylor. It sold for $25,000 at auction at Christie's alongside other pieces from the collection of Elizabeth Taylor.
Historically, Asprey has been known for jewellery collections featuring naturalistic forms. The Woodland Collection is a contemporary reflection of this, being (as the name suggests) inspired by the English woodland. The oak tree in particular is a recurring motif, both in the form of oak leaves and the use of textures redolent of oak bark.
The collection is produced using a range of highly skilled techniques: micro-pavé features prominently, as does enamelling. The latter is exceptionally challenging to execute on curved surfaces.
