Chall’angel contest

BIJORHCA PARIS teamed up with the online collaborative platform Chall'Angel to find new talents.

Since the beginning of this collaboration in January 2017, more than 341 fashion-jewellery and precious-jewellery designers have participated in the contest and has posted over 803 creations on the Chall'Angel website.

BIJORHCA PARIS invites you to discover the 3 winners selected by a professional jury represented by Marine Devos (Show Director), Elizabeth Leriche (Artistic Director of the Show) and Jean-Louis Niedermaier (President of the French Jewellery Trade Association BOCI).

For the January 2020 session, the theme of the contest is « neo-jewels ».

What do we mean by "neo jewellery"? Minimalist pieces that adorn the body as if it was a piece of jewellery to be enhanced.

Jewels designed from the body, which respond to it and are incorporated into its hollows and curves: a single earring that slips behind the ear and over the lobe, a ring that covers several phalanges or wraps only one nail, a bracelet that dresses the palm...

The 3 laureates are : Nina Nanas, Okan Studio and Monad Design.

They win an exhibition space at the show to present their collections, an article on the CHALL'ANGEL blog and visibility on the social networks of BIJORHCA PARIS and CHALL'ANGEL.

The public's choices are : Nina Nanas and Mademoiselle Coline.

They win invitations to the Bijorhca Paris show and visibility on the social networks of the show and Chall'Angel.

Okan Studio

Margaux Gripon, founder of Okan Studio, creates singular pieces of art jewellery that impress by their audacity and envelop with self-confidence. Ōkan is a transcription of the Japanese kanji 王冠 which means "crown". A universal symbol, a jewel which speak to everyone, a metaphor of power that echoes our raison d'être. Each of her pieces (rings, cuffs and earrings) is made up of a set of assemblages of layers with impetuous forms. By their insolent shapes, they catch the eye and adorn the power of being yourself.

The main idea of her brand is to create jewellery for women who like to play with their style and who enjoy enhancing their character with original and extravagant accessories. Her main inspirations are architecture, nature, art, music and travel which gives each piece a unique character.
