EnVerre et Contrefil

I'm Marilia Schetrite creative force behind woven metal jewelery EnVerre et Contrefil.

Live Dordogne in south-west France, in the middle of the Périgord Vert countryside, in an old farmhouse that I am trying to restore, assisted by Hermine and Othello my 2 cats!

I came to the jewelry woven by chance while looking for a way to showcase my fused glass cabochons ...

Fused glass are you telling me? Yes I glassmaker training, not to mention stained glass, I created and restored stained glass for churches, but what always interested me is creation! Drawing contemporary canopies or reinterpret traditional designs but also use new techniques through the work of glass in the oven ... So in 2005 I started a range of fused glass objects, dishes, vases, bowls and other lanterns ...

But jewelery demand was there ... I did various tests, colors, shapes, patterns, firing, finishing, but I was never satisfied with the result. Between the poor quality accessories and adhesives that did not stick, I was almost convinced to abandon the idea of ​​range of glass jewelery ... Then I told myself that I had to find a complementary technique for finishing around my glass cabochons ...

So I searched and searched, and searched the net ... I first leaned toward the idea of ​​metal clay, discovering the work of some great designers in whose : Lisa Barth ... Lisa Barth is a big lady who made a beautiful metal clay work with unique pieces, original design, and with delicate and fine finish, she sometimes ad some wire work... Curious, I went to look at his other creations, and I came across an equally accomplished wire artist ...

And I thought that was a wonderful idea !!!

And I launched myself.

In 2009/2011, I spent hours and hours testing, experimenting, finding info ... and I trained, trained, trained ...

During 2011 I proposed my first wire copper jewelry, which have been wonderfully received, and that pushed me to continue ... Since I'm still experimenting ... After several unsuccessful attempts, I refuse to work with plated or coated wire that blackened and quickly become irretrievable. I created jewelry designed to last, that we can maintain and wear for years I specialize in bare metal : copper, bronze, brass and sterling silver 925.

In 2012 I started Tissaaré collection with a very fine wire (0.3mm), and that opened a world of possibilities ... I specialize little by little in very fine and meticulous weaving, in clear and elegant lines, but sometimes more baroque, with more complex weaving ...

In 2013, I marked a step through the design and manufacture of a large necklace with complex weaves, made more than 60 hours weaving (excluding design), this exceptional piece was a milestone, like a degree or examination that would validate the acquisition of know-how ...

Since I develop more personal collections, that I present my shop ...

I mostly worked the Sterling Silver, which is guaranteed by affixing my Master Punch registered with the French Customs services. I can also work in 18k gold, and of course custom quote !!! The goldfilled is possible though difficult to obtain in France ...
Anyway for any question or special request do not hesitate to let me a note here or on my website ...
