Announcement    Mademoiselle Felee, monument jewelry creation in Art Deco style, inspired from architecture. A unique design, reflecting cities and their emblematic monuments, as Paris and the Eiffel Tower.

Drawing her inspiration from cities and their emblematic monuments, French designer Aurore François creates jewelry with pure lines since 2010. Of the Eiffel Tower, she took the minimalist shape, the ultra-feminine graphic patterns, the delicate metallic lace structure… to design original and elegant bracelets, rings, earrings, necklaces or headbands, in a unique design with a cut brass technique. Each creation is gilded with bronze, black, silver or fine gold by the parisian "haute couture" gilder, and made in limited edition in the stylist studio.

A few words from the stylist recorded by Iconic French :

About her story :
I have always been creative. When a child, I used to design furniture and clothes for my Barbie dolls. I subsequently had to switch my focus on academics but when I got a chance to take control of my own destiny, I chose to go back to design. After two years studying foreign languages, I joined the Studio Berçot in Paris. While in training, I exhibited my first work for “Les Perméables” at Palais de Tokyo. After graduating, I gained experience with Karine Arabian, Guy Laroche and Corpus Christi design studios, where I was alternatively in charge of accessories, jewelry, printed fabrics and embroidery. I also worked as a graphic designer and as a photo stylist for fashion magazines, before launching my own brand in 2010, which got two awards by the professional fashion press.

About her creative process :
In Mademoiselle Felee’s skin, I delight in stealing the mythical monuments’ soul to dress women up with an elegant singularity. My first source of inspiration was the Eiffel tower, that's why the brand is named "Mademoiselle Felee" (note: “Fêlée” is a double entente, meaning “cracked” and “loony” but is also here linked to the Eiffel Tower as in French, “Fêlée” is the sound made by the two reversed syllables of “Eiffel”)
For each new collection, I choose a monument I want to pay tribute to, travel to the city where it is, take lots of photos and make thorough research. When some shapes reveal themselves that can be translated into jewelry, I draw jewelry on paper and patterns on my computer to be sent to the laser cutter. Then I grind the cut pieces down and send them to my gilder to finish them into fine gold, silver, black or bronze. Finally, I assemble all the pieces to create my jewelry new collection. 

About her future :
I'd like to travel the world to allow every woman to wear her favorite emblematic monument or souvenir from a magic journey.

About MademoiselleFelee

On Etsy since 2012

Mademoiselle Felee est une marque de bijoux au design unique, né de l'architecture.

Quelques mots de la styliste recueillis par Iconic French :

Son parcours :
J'ai toujours été créative : enfant, je crée des meubles et des vêtements pour mes poupées Barbie. Plus tard, je m'ouvre aux autres cultures en étudiant les langues pendant 2 ans, puis me tourne instinctivement vers la création, en rejoignant le Studio Berçot à Paris. Après avoir exposé mes premières oeuvres lors de l'exposition "Les Perméables" au Palais de Tokyo, j'enrichis mon expérience en broderies, imprimés, accessoires et bijoux chez Karine Arabian, Guy Laroche et Corpus Christi. J'exerce ensuite le graphisme et le stylisme photo pour divers magazines de mode… avant de créer ma propre marque de bijoux en 2010, récompensée à 2 reprises par la presse mode professionnelle.

Son procédé créatif :
Dans la peau de Mademoiselle Felee, je me plais à dérober l’âme de monuments mythiques pour l’offrir aux femmes en quête de singularité. Ma première source d'inspiration est la Tour Eiffel, c'est pourquoi, la marque se nomme "Mademoiselle Felee" (note: “Fêlée” est le son créé par les 2 syllabes inversées de “Eiffel”)
Pour chaque nouvelle collection, je choisis un monument à mettre à l'honneur, je visite sa ville de résidence, le photographie sous toutes les coutures et fais des recherches détaillées. Dès que des formes pouvant être traduites en bijoux se révèlent, je dessine des modèles sur papier et des motifs sur ordinateur, découpées ensuite au laser par une entreprise spécialisée. Après meulage à l'atelier, elles sont dorées à l'or fin, l'argent, ou oxydées en bronze ou noir par un doreur parisien, enfin je les assemble pour créer la nouvelle collection de bijoux.

Son futur :
J'aimerais parcourir le monde pour offrir à chaque femme la possibilité de porter son monument symbolique préféré ou le souvenir d'un voyage magique.
