I first saw Virginie's jewelry at a Brooklyn craft fair and fell in love with her work! I didn't commit to buying her jewelry at the time but later wished I'd gotten this ring, so I was very glad to come across her Etsy store. The ring arrived quickly and is so beautiful - the band is elegantly thin but sturdy, and the black enamel is glossy and bold. I'm very happy with my purchase and will absolutely purchase more from Virginie's shop!

About

From chemistry to jewelry

After long long studies in science and my engineering degree in Physics and Chemistry I realized a bit late I wasn't meant for scientific research and discovered my passion that I still have today for jewelry. I took adult courses for silversmithing, I have worked with polymer clay (which inspired my business name by the way), leather and now mainly with brass and silver using classic metalsmithing techniques.
