INVITATION ON A JOURNEY
A return to the origins of life and of the elements: myths and symbols,water, earth, air and fire. The origins of nature: fauna and flora meticulously explored.
Exploring the finest craftsmanship: alchemic transformation. The sketching motion, vivid lines, gems, metals, enamels, crystals...
Discovering a jeweler of emotion: the poetic recreation of the world into an «enchanting cosmogony» of which women: nymphs, goddesses, fairies are the eternal guardians.
THE SACRED FIRE ODYSSEY HIGH-END JEWELRY AND JEWELRY 2012
An initiation journey, to an ardent secret kept by Vesta, a charismatic nymph Goddess of fire, Phoenix-woman revealed only over time.
In a nature metaphoric of fiery fauna and flora: delicate poppy petals, peacock feathers, dragonfly wings in flamboyant colors with iridescent reflections.
In symbolic shapes ringlets of hair like arabesques entwining and interlacing to infinity. At last the mystery of this journey is revealed: that of the sacred fire, the precious element.
