Inspiration can be found in the simple details of life, in art for example. Just when you least expect it, it can fall into your lap, and you can be moved by the beauty and simplicity of an object or a colorful landscape, which can give rise to an idea.
Inspiration is found in life's little details
Inspiration is a very random thing. It can come to you in your dreams, appear at the whim of a detail in life, something that touches you and that you want to transcribe in an artistic way.
Not having had any training, being self-taught is a blessing as far as inspiration is concerned, because I'm not formatted to the standards of the trade. Making jewelry is a passion, and the inspiration for my creations comes from other interests. These include, of course,architecture , which I have discovered on my travels. History also occupies an important place, which comes from Mum. Dad, on the other hand, was a science enthusiast who passed this passion on to me...
When I went to Paris, I went to the Musée de l'Homme whenever I could.
I've always been intrigued by the evolution of civilizations, techniques and knowledge... Of course, there's also the region where I live and grew up, whose history is an infinite creative resource.
My inspirations are diverse. Some, like painting, go back to my days at the Lycée d'Altitude in Briançon. My interest in painting and the use of color began when I was in 6th grade, spending my days contemplating a painting by Paul Klee, Château. Hanging in front of me in the classroom, this canvas, with its mix of colors, its construction and its shapes, is an aesthetic whole that has left an indelible mark on me.
Whatever the case, we've never been in the business of following trends.
The first step in manufacturing a piece of Jewellery is sketching.
I've always drawn to put my ideas down on paper, so as to have a sort of reminder. But that doesn't mean I'm a great draughtsman; my sketches enable me to sketch out a first visual of the future creation.
Creating a piece at Jewellery requires a great deal of preparatory artistic work. The beginning of the creative chain is the sketch;
the first sketch is put on paper, then we make a first 3D realization where we can see the final piece from different angles. Little by little, by exchanging ideas with the production team, the sketch is refined and made more precise, culminating in the first wax model. Sometimes I repeat the model up to 10 times to get a result that suits me perfectly.
