AWKN1 (Awakened One), is based upon the universal state of being beyond any religious identification. It is a state of pure presence and openness available to all. The AWKN1 jewelry collections combine the elegance of Parisian lifestyle, the edge and the glitter of Los Angeles, and the renowned meticulous craftsmanship of Thai Art. Anne-Marie Le Flanchec, Founder and Designer of AWKN1, has held a lifelong interest towards fine art and spirituality. Raised in Paris surrounded by a rich french culture, she pursued her passions of art history, interior design, and jewellery design. As well as this, Anne-Marie’s practice of Tibetan Buddhism has also been a source of inspiration in creating the AWKN1 brand. With their own clear conviction, AWKN1 jewellery collections expose meaning and purpose, and honors the essence and potential of the human spirit. AWKN1 believes in dreaming the world into a wiser and kinder reality, and sharing its intrinsic beauty as far and wide as possible. AWKN1 uses sophisticated engraving techniques to create intricate signature patterns including the “Guilloché which were used in decorative art among many royal courts of Europe during the 18th Century. The fine craftsmanship and meaningful designs contain a specific energy that awakens and swirls, magnetising to those it is meant for; the brand is drawn to you as much as you are drawn towards it.
