Announce de vacances • Vacation notice

....... 20 Juillet - 1 Aout • 20 July - 1 August .......

It's that time of the year again to kick back and absorbed some much needed Vitamin D and jump off the grid for a bit. As for me, I like taking a bit of time of here and there, not the entire 4-5 weeks of straight vegetation like most French people do – unbeknownst to me the extent of seriousness they take it!

Tomorrow will be your last day to order anything and potentially have it sent of before my return on the 1st of August, unless it's bespoke to which then you'll have to wait.

Here are some new pieces I'd made ready-to-ship online.
See you when I return! Stay fresh.

Nouvelle Exposition de cet été 2018!

Here are all three of the exhibitions I'm participating in this Summer!

A little info about the pieces my Gallerist are hosting:

GREEN:

LOVE JEWELS:
Curated by Smitten Collective, will be exposing my 'Naughty Bits' collection (by my evil twin Rokxia) in Hasselt, Belgium also. A group 13 International Art Jewelers who's work falls under the same theme come together just for this event.

Lastly...
L’ÉPHéMèRE:
A boutiques de créateurs run by Cyril Besson has a handful of my best selling pieces from Minicyn – they're based in South of France, Toulon. The intimate event composes of a handful of French movers and shakers.

Vive les bijoux!

Too hot to Blog!

It's been a while yes I know.
Since the last post I'd delivered 3 packages with lots of goodies for 3 different galleries, two in Belgium and one in Toulon, South of France. Not to mention jetting off in between to Milos, Greece with my yoga buddies for some much needed time-out.

Below are just a few pieces from the week! Mixing Oxidised Silver with gold and Silver & gold-plated etc.

Take care under this intense heat x

Indulgent Keepsake Pebble ring band

In the past few weeks I've been tinkering away with an unused electric tool that's been tucked away for at least 3 years to date. It allowed me to create this Indulgent of a ring. It feels somewhat courageous and daring in many ways; artistically, spiritually & perhaps even spatially... liken to some sort of artistic "coming-out". It was fun! And I hope to prolong this journey in 2018.

Ode to pebbles and broken slate rocks souvenirs

Most of us at some point in our lives have taken home pebbles or broken bits of slate rocks as souvenirs from the beach. The weight of them makes it so desirable to have them in your hands, to at some point either throw them back into the water or to take home. I for one am guilty of that each and every time.

This small collection is an ode to that human gesture/desire that makes us who we are, curious creatures.

From one tool to another and wearable to boot!

A while back, I was given a pair of solid Mother of Pearl(MOP) Salad servers by a lovely client. They were both broken in parts that enabled further use from its original purpose. Being familiar with my previous MOP line she gave me permission to repurpose these magnificently thick MOP parts into jewellery. Between a long period of pondering in & out of what justice I could do with them and my recent visit to an exhibition at Galerie La Joaillerie pa Mazlo call 'Holy Tools' a light-bulb went off! I cannot tell you how thrilled I am for these to be finally reunited with their initial objective as tools AND be given an additional new life as art jewellery.

Two have been born from them thus far, one as a comb and the other a paper knife. The further left chunky piece is yet to be transformed.

Here are some in between pictures below or just simply follow my Instagram for regular updates. https://www.instagram.com/minicyn_/
