Tracey Emin launches first jewellery collection in collaboration with designer Stephen Webster

The British artist has launched her first jewellery collection, collaborating with her longtime friend, designer Stephen Webster. Tracey shares her favourite pieces exclusively with Stylist

Her most famous piece – My Bed – sold in 2014 for £2.5million but you don’t need a trust fund to invest in one of Tracey Emin’s latest works. The 52-year-old has teamed up with jewellery designer Stephen Webster to create a 50-piece collection entitled I Promise To Love You, inspired by Emin’s neon graffiti art and her sketches of woodland animals.

See Tracey's favourite pieces from the collection in the gallery below

  • 1. Charm, £400

    “I chose the woodland creatures as I wanted to work with the idea of English animals. My ancestors were forest gypsies and I wanted to use this as inspiration.”

  • 2. Love bracelet, £1,400

    “For me jewellery is not just decorative, it has meaning and significance. The ‘Love’ bracelet is the perfect example of that.”

  • 3. With You I Breathe necklace, £2,100

    “The words in this collection are very important and some of them are very romantic and passionate. They are like a mantra that goes around in my head.”

  • 4. More Passion cuff, £4,150

    “It’s really strange but this was the piece that I disliked the most at the beginning – I thought it was too flash. Now it’s the thing I like the best.”

  • 5. Ring, £11,700

    “This ring is engraved with the same words [‘I promise to love you’] as the neon artwork I gave Stephen for his store in Beverly Hills. It represents both of our worlds.”

Ten pieces from the I Promise To Love You collection will be available exclusively on from 20 January. The full collection will be in Stephen Webster stores from 10 February;
