Yvel, the world’s leading brand in pearl jewelry design, have produced some truly exceptional pieces of jewelry that have been hailed as ‘works of art’. It therefore, comes as no surprise that Yvel has become a partner of Art Basel in Miami Beach. For three decades Orna and Isaac Levy’s creative designs have stunned the jewelry world and received many prestigious awards. But more recently, a number of these unique masterpieces of design and craftsmanship have caught the attention of art collectors and have become recognized as ‘works of art’ in their own right. Celebrating thirty years of producing luxury high-end jewelry, designers Orna and Isaac Levy have produced thirty, one-of-a-kind pieces to represent their thirty years of activity in the jewelry world. They have called the collection, ‘Art to Wear’. Yvel’s co-founder and chief designer Isaac Levy stated, “Although traditionally, jewelry has always been regarded as an adornment to beautify the body, ‘Art to Wear’ enables collectors to wear a precious work of art on their bodies. Our work has effectively broken the boundaries of the ‘jewelry world’ and entered into to a totally new realm.” The designers will be presenting their ‘Art To Wear’ collection during Art Basel in Miami Beach and sharing their passion for their artistry with the Art Basel guests.
About Art Basel-Founded in 1970 by gallerists from Basel, Art Basel today stages the world’s premier art shows for Modern and contemporary art, sited in Basel, Miami Beach and Hong Kong. Defined by its host city and region, each show is unique, which is reflected in its participating galleries, artworks presented, and the content of parallel programming produced in collaboration with local institutions for each edition. Art Basel’s engagement has expanded beyond art fairs through a number of new initiatives. In 2014, Art Basel launched its Crowdfunding Initiative, in collaboration with Kickstarter. This initiative presents jury-selected art projects to potential benefactors, which include Art Basel’s vibrant audience and the Kickstarter community. The initiative has catalyzed much-needed support for outstanding non-commercial art projects worldwide and so far has helped pledge over $2 million to creative projects around the world. For Art Basel Cities, launched in 2016, Art Basel is working with selected partner cities to develop vibrant and content-driven programs specific to the individual city. Connecting them to the global art world through Art Basel’s expertise and network, Art Basel Cities supports its partners to develop their unique cultural landscape.
