Her final collection at Central Saint Martins 'The Human Body as a Site for Intervention' consisted of large sculptural objects, which move on the border between clothing, object and piece of jewelry. The jewelry pieces transform the human body into an organic sculpture. The objects made by Stephanie Chloe Bila reminds a little bit to the Haute Couture dresses of the dutch designer Iris van herpen. They take up the lines and proportions of the body and expand them into the space. The collection was sponsored by Swarowski and Compwood products, is hand crafted and an exploration of the ability of jewellery to enhance our perception of the human form.
Stephanie´s current collection is an extension of her graduate collection and is trying to expand jewelry beyond its usual borders. The pieces are not so big and sculpturally as her graduation collection, but subtle and can be integrated into the everyday life. The pieces are hand crafted and consist of brass, Beech Bendywood and some Swarowski elements. Each piece is available in 18 carat gold or silver. The delicate, elegant curved pieces reminiscent formally to herringbone or bird bones, cling to the body and appear to wrap around him. The collection contains a variety of pieces such as ear clips, bracelets and chains, which resemble each other formally, but individually different. With her work Stephanie wants to create a new human architecture through design. In this way she is more a artist or a scientist as a jewelry designer
