The love of painting as an expression of jewelry creation
I would like to give back to jewelry, its place in the world to which it belongs: Art.
Jewelry is an art. Like the world of painting, jewelry has its great masters and more humbler servants, it also undergoes copies, mass productions … nevertheless, the creative process must lead us to the question of who we are and our feelings. Like a shudder in front of a painting, I wish the customer to feel the same emotion in front of the jewel she herself created with my help.
I consider each unique piece as a work of art.
In order to bring these two worlds even closer together, my passion for jewelry and my pleasure in painting, I developed a creative approach where the jewel is designed through successive sketches and finally symbolized by a painting with charcoal, watercolors and India ink.
