ENGLISH INFO

Info
 

After a solid experience in the "haute joaillerie", I opened my own studio in 2001.

It is during many journeys between earth and sea that I found multiple objects and materials, which, as much as my encounters, enriched my creativity. My creations ally the rough and natural elements (wood, stone, shells, hairs..) with the subtle rigour of the setting.

My jewels express the will to tame wild nature and, through a strange alchemy, to combine it with the nobleness of the precious metals.

Other jewels, also of natural inspiration, have a special charm due to their graphic and contemporary lines. I make all the jewels myself and propose to my customers various modifications and repairs. I would be happy to create the jewel of your dreams.
