About

Poetic jewellery & ceramics handmade in Brighton

Fleur de Carotte started from an event which I first saw as terrible and which happened to be one of the best blessings in disguise of my life! I unfairly lost a job I put all my heart into for a year and then decided to work for myself, do what I love the most and never make a sacrifice for something which is not dear to my heart.
I took this decision back in 2014 and since then I never looked back. My project is evolving and changing shape throughout the discoveries and events of life.

Fleur de Carotte means 'carrot flower' in French.
I chose this name many years ago as I love the fragile beauty of the meadow flowers and my friends used to call me 'carrot' because of my hair. I thought it encapsulated both my aesthetic and fun side!

I am passionate about art and crafts and I love sewing, printmaking, ceramics, weaving and jewellery making.
I am mainly self-taught and I have learnt these skills through experimenting. My jewellery is inspired by nature and the elegance of Art Deco shapes. My ceramic objects are whimsical, playful and made after my own sketches. I love the whiteness and delicacy of the porcelain I use for my range of jewellery, always using my favourite colour palette of gold, light pink and black.

My creative process starts with sketches, I have about 5 different sketch books and scribble messy drawings whenever an idea crosses my mind!
I am inspired by artists who all had their workshops in Paris during the same era: Raoul Dufy, Henri Matisse, Marc Chagall and Pablo Picasso. I am working on an ever growing collection of handbuilt ceramic vases and brooches inspired by free-spirited female artists of the 20th century.

Shop policies

Fleur de Carotte provides playful and poetic jewellery & ceramics handmade in my Brighton studio.

Fleur de Carotte is a brand of leather jewellery and ceramics born in 2015, for people who appreciate craftsmanship and products slowly handmade with soul.

The brand celebrates femininity and quirkiness, with a poetic touch. It is made for women who enjoy beauty in the details of everyday life, the natural world and art.
The inspiration behind it is the wildlife, the elegance of Art Deco lines, the madness of Memphis, everyday life scenes, existing and imaginary creatures, art, literature and my own imagination.

All of my jewellery and ceramics are slowly handmade with a lot of care and after my own sketches. I source most of my material, including my tools, from suppliers in Brighton or the UK and my packaging is 100% recycled.
