Cypriot jewellery brand OWC has been named the 2013 winner of Treasure Designer of the Year.
Myriam Soseilos is the artist and designer behind OWC which describes itself as "intimately crafted artistry". She launched the brand last year with her style of jewellery already said to have an unprecedented amount of attention.
The award was presented at the Treasure launch party during Jewellery Week last week. The prize was sponsored by Presman Mastermelt and was presented by The Telegraph Magazine shopping and jewellery editor Victoria Bain.
The aesthetic of the OWC brand is symmetrical jewellery with a passion for geometry. Inspired by modern architecture each piece is simple and elegant.
The name "OWC" represents the first three letters of the designer’s surname in Greek while its pronunciation is said to be similar to the English word ‘sauce’.
On being presented with the accolade Soseilos said, “When I started designing the Transformers Collection, I never dreamed that it would win an award. My work is the product of my passion for aesthetics, distinctiveness and perfection. It is great to see people appreciating this.”
