Situated at the heart of Brussels, our atelier boutique Ernest is a place where high-quality accessories and small objects selected with care can be found. At the origin of this project, Aurore Havenne - designer of silver and vermeil jewellery - and Michael Guérisse O’Leary - designer of leather accessories - wanted to create a boutique overlooking their atelier.
With Ernest, they wanted to have a direct contact with their customers. The shop is a warm place, ideal for exchanging and telling the story of the objects that they create and select.
"Our goal is to offer high-quality and timeless creations. The name Ernest refers to that as it originally comes from earnest."
Aurore Havenne creates jewelry with the sleek and minimal lines inspired by the city, its volumes, its building, its noices. Her collections-Karma Baby, Unity, Raindrops, Infinity, Trinity, Halo and Destiny-are made of gold, sterling silver and semi-precisous stones.
Michael Guérisse O'leary creates leather accessories characterized by geometric and sculptured forms. In a constant pursuit of perfect proportions, simplicity and unconventionalbeauty, each piece is carefully handcrafted with great measure of care. The collections are inspired by master architects and designers such as Andrée Putman, Gae Aulenti, Gio Ponti, Richard Serra, Alvar Aalto.
