Meet the designer
Tell us about yourself and how you came to be a jewelry designer.
I studied at art school in Paris and first started as a knitting designer for different luxury brands for 10 years. My passion was embroidery and I started my first jewelry collection
by mixing yarn and embroidery.
What is your creative process? Walk us through each stage - from coming up with ideas/themes/concepts you want to explore, to translating that into an artistic vision, to creating the physical pieces and collections.
I create directly with the materials: yarn, chains, sequins. My hands are driving me.
Where do you draw inspiration from?
I am driven by the desire to give each piece of jewelry its own unique spirit. I seek out vintage pearls, ribbons, and old lace.
