Betony Vernon - is beautiful, bold, provocative and boundary-defying. As a brilliant designer and anthropologist it is her personal mission to help women and men to enjoy and share pleasure. Discover the Betony Vernon luxury fine art jewelry collection at Xenses, timeless artefacts that will help to adorn the body with only the utmost attention to detail and respect.
American-born Betony Vernon has been inspired by the fine arts as long as she can remember and after graduation, Cum Laude in Art History and a with a minor in Metalsmithing from the Virginia Commonwealth University, she moved to Italy and received her Master's degree in Industrial Design at the prestigious Domus Academy in Milan. Betony has since collaborated with the world's leading fashion and design houses including Missoni, Gianfranco Ferré, Swarovski, Pampaloni, Alexander Wang and Fornasetti. Her luxury jewelry pieces have been included in a number of International exhibitions from the Victoria and Albert Museum in London to the Triennale Design museum in Milan.
Vernon brought innovation and sensuality to the world of exclusive jewelry by introducing body decorations with sensual features in her Sado-Chic collection. This luxury jewelry collection became the creative basis for the controversial Paradise Found Jewelry line, officially launched in 2001 and still very much demanded today and worn by countless celebrities. The Paradise Found Collection is entirely handmade by master craftsmen in Italy and designed by Betony Vernon with the aim to encourage the wearer to give pleasure. Betony Vernon jewels are limited editions and most prototypes are crafted by Betony herself and reproduced by the finest artisanal craftsmen with expertise in several areas as lost-wax casting and chisel work. In 2013 Betony published her first book: The Boudoir Bible. Which is a comprehensive and instructional guide with stunning illustrations by Francois Berthoud. Betony Vernon’s ultimate goal, both as designer and author, is to “dismantle the pleasure taboo.”
