About

A job, a passion

Crafting jewellery with my hands feels like a great accomplishment and to get there was a bumpy road.
I always knew that I would do something artistic for a living. Growing up in a family where craftsmanship was all around me it seamed logic. I then started art school at 16 and carried on specialising in textile design with a B.A. After graduating there were no clear path ahead of me so I travelled a bit and was an au-pair for one year in London and 8 months in New York.
Back at home, in Paris, I had to find a job and start gaining some sort of independence. I ended up selling furniture and home design in a Parisian shop for 4 years. Even with working part time and being surrounded by beautiful things, I lacked motivation. One thing kept me going: creating.
When I prepared my final project for the BA diploma, I started to develop a series of jewels. I carried on doing little experimentations while travelling. With a few tools and imagination I was able to create a great variety of designs.
Along the years the technique improved, to get to the point where I was confident enough to star selling them. When not working in the shop, my free time was dedicated to my little jewellery business. Wanting to go further and not simply rely on manufacturers to get my supplies, I applied to enter a school where i could finally learn to make jewellery from scratch. I quit my job and got into this school. A new chapter then started.
After graduation it made sense to start my own business. Today my job is my passion. And here I am!!

    Art and design have always played a big part in my life. Today, creating is not only a passion but also my job. I turned to jewelry because it allows me to mix my interest for fashion with the joy to craft an object with my hands. Hope you enjoy!!
