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.

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.

Mother of Pearl Capsule collection

Since the beginning of the year, I've been experimenting with some pieces of Mother of Pearl from my stash of goodies. Learning on how to cut/saw, polish, shape etc the material ('Nacre' in French). It's been a rather messy study though the results have been rewarding. It reverberated in just a small handful of earrings which I'd presented them briefly during my participation in JEMA (please see my previous Blog posts) at my studio.

I happy to say that a few of the designs will be available to purchase in the next few days. The quantity is very limited unfortunately so brace yourselves!

Here are just some which I'll be listing soon. Available in both Silver or oxidised.
