“ In your body is a good place to be

Since 2015, artist and fashion muse Beatrix Ost has brought vision to ARTICLE22. With a shared ethos , Beatrix was inspired by the transformation story behind Peacebomb jewelry. Her personal transformation story was skin cancer that left a Z-shaped scar on her forehead. Embracing th is personal horror, she turned it into beauty by tattooing it purple.

"My feeling is that there does not have to be a compromise between your ideas and the objects you wear"


Beatrix Ost: Artist, designer, author, filmmaker, and all around Renaissance Woman.

Style icon Beatrix Ost arrived in New York in 1975 and was swiftly discovered by the New York Times as one of the city’s most elegant fusions of art and fashion but that's not all to her story.

Skin cancer left a Z-shaped scar on her forehead. Embracing this personal horror, Beatrix turned it into beauty by tattooing it light purple. It was this concept of transformation that led us to create our first mantra bangles : "in your body is a good place to be." Beatrix has been an ARTICLE22 collaborator ever since. Born in Germany, she lives between New York and Charlottesville which she considers her main home today.

In your body is a good place to be.
