Metal Pointus

Metal Pointus, literally translates to ‘Edgy-Metal’, enhances the natural beauty of metal through daring, bold and elaborate designs that play on architectural features and negative spaces created by the innovative combinations. Tin, Bronze and Silver are manipulated to produce the decadent Pointus line, created by designer/artist Bernard Bouhnik. The Paris based jeweler, founded 15 years ago, features five collections; Absolute Privilege (contemporary), Dazzled (innovative), Sweet and Sour (sensuous), Remember Forever (cutting edge) and Flagrant Impacts (limited editions), that introduce striking bracelets, necklaces, earrings, rings and cuffs perfect for every occasion. Layers of intricately crafted silver-plated beads, disks, chains, and other striking shapes convey Bouhnik’s unique style with impressive functionality and flexibility. The addition of Swarovski crystals, pate de verre glass and custom beads, takes Pointus jewelry to another level of luxury.
