A few words about this collection...
All my collections start with a story. They take shape research after research.
For example, the "Forget Me Not" and "Always In My Heart" collections are inspired from a mix of hip-hop jewelery and romantic 19th century jewelery. They're show-off, but carry a secret love message.
I try to keep using the traditionnal techniques (chasing for example) I learnt at Boulle School. For example, the "Injuriseuses" collection pieces are hand-chased, one by one, with tools I make myself.
The NuLook collection is inspired by Pop Art, a style that affected me a lot when I was a kid. I recycle these graphic codes I grew up with, and make them precious through the techniques I use to make them. The pieces of this collection are made of chased and enamelled bronze.
What are you most proud of?
Earning my life through my passion.
Where do you manufacture your products?
Every piece is hand-made in my workshop in Paris.
Where can we find your collection?
In shops that have character, in France or worldwide.
