The Designer

“I believe that passion is inside all of us. It is about finding it and following it…”

Born in the South of France close to the border with Italy, I was lucky to travel the world for a few months and visit many countries. After living for 2 years in Sydney, Australia and 3 years in Paris, France, I now live in the beautiful West of Ireland with my 2 children.

I learnt metalsmithing and jewellery design at the AFEDAP Jewellery School in Paris. I then discovered the art of chainmail, an ancient art of assembling rings one at a time to weave fabric like patterns with metal. Chainmail is beautifully fluid and tactile, and I love exploring the endless creative possibilities offered by mixing chainmail with traditional silversmithing techniques. It allows me to create modern, feminine and unique pieces of jewellery which are a true pleasure to wear….

Contemporary and Modernist jewellery have always caught my eye for the strong yet pure lines and bold pieces of jewellery. Such designs as well as my travels around the world are all sources of influence for my own jewellery designs – Elegant and Spirited….

My passion for jewellery has always been a part of me from a young age, and I would always bring a piece of jewellery from all the countries I travelled to. Passion is inside all of us, it is about finding it and following it…
