Year: 2021 Label: DEEWEE Catalogue Nr: DEEWEE058 Format: USB
From the press release:
DEEWEE and the accessories brand founded by the Belgian-born creative director Stéphanie D’heygere are releasing a signet ring made of 925 sterling silver designed & produced by D’heygere in Italy and engraved with DEEWEE’s iconic logo, with a built-in USB drive that includes an exclusive 9-minute-and-39 second-music piece and digital artwork.
A piece composed by DEEWEE for this collaboration and titled “OH STÉPHANIE”, indexed DEEWEE058 in the label’s catalogue, that will never be released anywhere else.
The project was first announced last fall for the reopening of the Fashion Museum in Antwerp, and supported by Flanders DC for Fashion.
“Like all our collaborations, the starting point of this one is friendship”, write David & Stephen Dewaele. “We’ve always admired Stéphanie’s ability to subvert the usual expectations of the world of jewellery by giving the high-quality pieces of her brand the appearance of the familiar, playing with the codes of everyday life objects, chipping away at the arrogance of luxury.”
“I’ve been a huge fan of Soulwax and 2manydjs since my teenage years, it’s a great honor to collaborate with such talented musicians”, says Stéphanie D’heygere. “But David and Stephen are more than just musicians. Mastering the concept of Gesamtkunstwerk, they perfectly combine sound, image and design; continuously pushing boundaries and reinventing themselves.”

Limited edition of 40 pieces, available in 2 sizes.
The ring went up for sale at a special event in Antwerp on November 4, 2021 at Ganterie Boon.
