A personal and creative endeavour, Black De Ville was founded by designer Harley Woolven in 2014, inspired by a minimalism that celebrates the natural elements of objects rather than the machine.
Inspired by his surroundings and deeply personal sentiments the natural world can inspire, each range is approached with a different style and technique, yet always a little undone, avant-garde and made to last.
Earning immediate recognition for his unconventional and deconstructivist designs, Woolven uses traditional silversmithing techniques to meld clean lines and geometric silhouettes with free form organic movement.
Made to order in Woolven’s Sydney studio using the highest-quality Australian 925 sterling silver, each BLKDV piece is hand finished, meaning all develop its own character, reserved exclusive for the wearer. Releasing a collection only annually, Woolven dedicates time and belief into each creation and release, drawing from his surroundings both past and present.
