Ruth Ribeaucourt's Profile
Inside a dusty cardboard box, nestled forgotten treasures, hidden for years in a drawer in my grandfathers office in St. Etienne. A selection of precious ribbons from his family’s silk factory, Julien Faure, in St. Etienne, France.
Gifted to me, I have been lovingly crafting one-off handmade jewellery, combining turn-of-the-century ribbons, heavily laden with gold thread, with vintage finds and treasured notions, swarovski crystals and artisanal beads - to make something which is timeless and to be treasured.
