Polymania 2019

I’m very honoured to teach these new   earrings in Bristol next march with 2 very talented artists: Sylvie Peraud and Debbie Crothers. Thank you so much Cara Jane for the opportunity.  More information here : Polymania. I like to create reversible jewellery that can be adapted to the outfits I wear. What is quite simple to achieve for a necklace is more difficult for earrings. So I looked for a simple way to create these reversible Read more…

ELEGANTE CONNECTIONS IN NIMES

It’s been almost two years since Sylvie and I developed this system of connections. The connectors are the element that has evolved the most on this project. What was initially a “link” has become for us an important visual element. The connectors that I propose for the necklace during the workshop are simpler but once the system and the construction are understood, the possibilities to personalize your work is infinite.   The next “Elegant Connections” Read more…

pebbles necklaces

I love the reversible jewels : my first reversible jewel   was a  bracelet. It was in 2007 : http://ptitscailloux.canalblog.com/archives/2007/11/22/6927706.html The pebbles also come back often in my creations. These necklaces are reversible and really comfortable to wear. They are adjustable in length and can be adapted to all morphologies.

Evolution

It’s been a few weeks since I finished this necklace but I did not take the time to take pictures. (In fact I always push back because I’m never satisfied, so it takes me hours!) This is an evolution of the collaborative project with Sylvie Peraud: Elegant connections that we teach this year in different places and especially in 15 days in FRANCE ( Normandie).

message rings

I have always been fascinated by poison rings. Obviously, I’m not interest by the poison idea but by the hidden place. Lately,I needed benevolence and positive thoughts to fight pettiness and gloom. So I use my rings to hide positive messages. You choose a positive message that will guide your day and you wear it well hidden in the heart of your ring. To discover the one I chose to wear today, just watch the Read more…

My classes on my website

I was fortunate to be part of the teachers’ team of the site CraftArtEdu. I will miss a lot this site and the team that run it. Despite my sadness, there is no way I can stop this kind of teaching.

Like roses

I didn’t work much in the studio this summer and when I was there, I was cleaning and sorting. I nevertheless took the time to make this necklace which is an evolution of Elegant Connections: a collaborative project with Sylvie Peraud. I have cut freehand the bead shapes directly in the clay. I liked to let myself be guided without knowing the result. I also like the contrast between the curves of the beads and Read more…
