Inchoo isn’t a simple ornamentation, it’s a jewel combining romanticism and eccentricity; it’s the mystery of a feminine symbol that’s not afraid to show a darker side. Every piece becomes a unique poem, unveiling force and finesse through noble materials.
About THE MAKER
Inchoo Bijoux is born from Astrid Apissoghomian's love for poetry and intricate ornements. It is a reflection of her lifestyle and her many extravageant passions. She loves baroque inspired environments, the dark and gothic inspired looks but also the highly feminine and glamour tastes of it. Her world flirts around skulls, taxidermy and macabre inspired themes as much as big statement shiny and haute couture jewelry. She loves to create new pieces using the body as a canvas. Inchoo Bijoux is for her, the perfect balance between gothic and glamour jewelry
